Cover Reveal: At The End of Holyrood Lane

I love announcements and this time it's something I'm extra excited to shout about ... the imminent arrival of my new picture book, At The End of Holyrood Lane.

Due for release September this year by EK Books, At the End of Holyrood Lane is a metaphorical glimpse at one aspect of domestic violence and how it affects young lives.

It is a tale of anxiety shown through the eyes of a small being with an intense dislike for thunderstorms, a fear shared by many young children.

It is also poignant yet uplifting picture book that deals with domestic violence in a way that provides understanding and offers hope to young children as noted by Paradise Kids Founder, Deirdre Hanna.

'With delicacy, and ultimately hope, Dimity’s lyrical words and Nicky’s evocative illustrations touch on hope in the midst of terror. With beautiful metaphors and symbolism  this book brings to light awareness of children who suffer and who are vulnerable in our society.'

Once again I had the sublime pleasure to work with illustrator, Nicky Johnston. Her illustrations are visually arresting, emotionally incisive, and ultimately…uplifting. Pure magic. And now we can finally reveal ... the cover of At The End of Holyrood Lane!
