Full cover - how do you judge?

Here is the full book cover. Hope it whets your appetite! Available for pre-order from mid-next week on amazon UK and US, then rolling out to other sites such as bookdepository in the coming weeks.
I should also receive some pre-release copies next month. So I will be able to send some of these to anyone that's keen on reading and reviewing before official publication.
Let me know if you're interested.
I plan to set up some book-signing events too, between now and summer - in France, Scotland... maybe elsewhere.

Happy 15th Birthday Wikipedia!

Awesome research tool. I used it a lot, when writing my novel, "The Witch’s List". Thanks Wikipedia!

Does tchep taste like haggis?

Tchep is a traditional Senegalese dish made with rice, tomato purée, vegetables, spices and fish (although you do get meat and vegetarian versions too). It's sold in restaurants and street stalls all over West Africa and elsewhere.
Here are a couple of recipes in English and French.
I once tasted some at a house party that tasted strangely like haggis. It's all down to the spices you use, no doubt.
