Today sees the publication of ‘Sternschnuppenfunkeln‘ (UK title Under the Mistletoe) in Germany. I love my German covers as they always look as if they’re straight out of a fairytale. Doesn’t it look as if a Christmas market is about to take place in the background?
I’m excited that soon readers will meet Sky Terran, who was fostered in Middledip village, where she discovered what a real Christmas could be. After her friendship with her erstwhile foster brother Freddy implodes, she returns to buy the tattiest house in the village. It’s unfortunate that Daz Moran had his eye on The Corner House for a business opportunity that would give him his own fresh start…till Sky outbid him.
