The Crystal Crypt cover reveal!

Poppy Denby’s next adventure, The Crystal Crypt, will be released in November. Today, in collaboration with Love Reading, we reveal its cover! And here it is…

Reporter sleuth Poppy Denby is asked to investigate the mysterious death of an up-and-coming female scientist in an Oxford laboratory known as the Crystal Crypt. The official verdict is that Dr June Leighton died in a tragic accident, but Dr Leighton’s lab assistant believes it was murder. However, when Poppy discovers that the colleague has spent time in a mental institution and has an unresolved murder in her own past, Poppy wonders if she is being misled. But then, another female academic is attacked, and Poppy herself becomes a target. This is the sixth book in the Poppy Denby Investigates series.

The Art Fiasco Blog Tour

Tomorrow is the launch date of The Art Fiasco! Hurrah! In previous years, with previous books, I’ve always had a jazz-filled live launch with 1920s attire at various venues in an around Newcastle upon Tyne. But this year, sadly, due to Coronavirus restrictions, that is not possible. But never fear! Poppy will be lovingly released into the world with a jam-packed online blog tour, hosted by a fantastic crop of book reviewers and Poppy Denby fans. You can follow Poppy’s tour around the internet from Friday 23rd – Friday 30th. She’ll be delighted to have you along.
