Irwell Upstream

Covers are a tricky area for an author. My last two books, Tangled Roots and Trouble Waters, have featured differing views of the Lowry Hotel on the river Irwell in Manchester, England. They were designed by More Visual Ltd, from an original photo (see pic) taken from my mobile phone looking up river from Bridge street bridge towards Blackfriars bridge.  The general idea was to create a brand image. Some people have liked the covers but I’m not sure they appreciate that it is the same place but from a different angle. The cover view for the book Troubled Waters also featured in the media when the piazza of the Lowry hotel was flooded a few weeks ago. Comments welcome, or email to
