Although it will still be a while before Through the Nethergate is ready for publication (I am aiming for early September), I am so excited about the cover that I thought I would share it here and see what you all think of it.
This is the blurb (which will help you understand the relevance of the cover):
Can you destroy evil or is it a manifestation of human behaviour?
Margaret has a unique talent. When any ghost has contact with her it reincarnates and acquires a physical presence and selected human characteristics.
Following the death of Margaret’s parents in a car accident, she goes to live with her grandfather in an ancient inn in the small town of Bungay in East Anglia, England. The cellar of the inn is haunted by the depraved spirit of Hugh Bigod who died in the 12th century and has assumed the form of a ferocious black dog. For hundreds of years the black dog has stalked the streets of the town leading the unfortunate victims of unnatural deaths away from Heaven’s white light and enslaving them. The unhappy ghosts can sense Margaret’s power and start to congregate at the inn in the hope that she can help free them from their lives of servitude. When Hugh Bigod becomes aware of Margaret’s power, he plots to use her to overthrow Lucifer and take his place as the master of Hell.
