Just at the point when I realise I simply cannot add another thing to my blogging commitments along comes a cover reveal for an author I know and really like personally and whose writing I adore, Tracey Scott-Townsend. Add in the fact the reveal is being co-ordinated by friend Kelly at Love Books Group and I can’t resist. Consequently, here I am sharing the cover and details of Tracey’s brand new book, The Eliza Doll.
Tracey was last here on Linda’s Book Bag as we stayed in to chat about The Vagabond Mother in a post you’ll find here. Tracy also stayed in with me to tell me about another of her books, Another Rebecca, in a post you can read here. I have also had the pleasure of reviewing some of Tracey’s poetry in her anthology So Fast and you can read that review here.
Let’s see what Tracey has in store for us this time.
The Eliza Doll
Ellie lives in a campervan with her dog, Jack, selling her handmade dolls at craft fairs. There is one doll that she can’t bear to finish until she comes to terms with the truth of what has happened.
The Eliza Doll is an uncompromising family drama about upheaval, off-grid living and living on the dole in 1980s England.
Set in East Yorkshire and Iceland from the eighties to the present.
The Eliza Doll is available for purchase here.
Knowing what I do about Tracey’s writing I’m sure The Eliza Doll will be a fabulous read.
Tracey Scott-Townsend is the author of six novels — the most recent The Vagabond Mother (January 2020) and Sea Babies (May 2019) — all published by Wild Pressed Books and Inspired Quill Publishing. Reviews often describe her novels as poetic or painterly.
She is also a poet and a visual artist. She has a Fine Art MA and a BA (Hons) Visual Studies. She has exhibited paintings throughout the UK (as Tracey Scott). She has a long career as a workshop facilitator with community groups and in schools.
Tracey is co-director of an up-and-coming small independent publisher, Wild Pressed Books, which has a growing roster of authors and poets.
Mother of four grown-up children, Tracey spends as much time as possible travelling the UK and Europe in a camper van with her husband and two dogs, writing and editing while on the road.
