A Song of Bullets
Published works include Celtic Non-fiction, science fiction, stage/screenplays, and a children's picture book. Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, she grew up through the worst of the Troubles, starting out as a library assistant in a rural town, then moved on to study Theater Arts and Literature in London, and toured the UK as a professional actress. She immigrated to the States, where she pursued her writing career.
A terrorist bomb sets off a chain reaction of destruction, betrayal, and vengeance. In 1979 Belfast a girl's life is destroyed by an IRA bomb and she wants revenge. A professional violinist, she is recruited by her British Army lover, Mike McLeod, into an intelligence detachment to infiltrate a traditional band led by one of the men responsible, Séan Maguire. Not knowing he is responsible she begins to fall for him, entering a dangerous love triangle between he and Mike. She comes to understand the Celtic viewpoint of the conflict as well as the British and starts to go native until she uncovers a plot to assassinate the Duke of Edinburgh at the upcoming Edinburgh Festival.
USA adults and teens, interested in Irish, military/terrorist stories and the Troubles in Northern Ireland.
Book cover type
Female protaganist, relevant backgroud. Moody. Large font. I liked 'The Paris Plot' cover by L1graphics, 'Girl in Trouble' cover by Mila, 'Lost and Hollow' & 'The Soul Snatchers' covers by IsaDesignNet.
What to avoid
Nothing frilly or too busy!
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Lizzy Shannon collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
