At last, I’ve reached the stage where the publication date for my first short story book is finally within reach. So now that it’s drawing closer, I thought I’d publish the cover image along with the blurb. I’ve used the same designer for Crime, Conflict and Consequences as I used for my debut novel SLUR. He is the wonderful Chris Howard who can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org, and once again I’m thrilled with the great job he’s done.
Here is the book blurb:
This entertaining collection of 10 assorted tales explores a variety of genres with stories of crime, love and family dilemmas. There are also a few twists and surprises along the way. The common thread running through each story is – consequences.
– In HELD UP our heroine is caught in the wrong place at the wrong time and becomes a witness in an unusual bank robbery.
– In ISLAND OF DREAMS Joe and Bev are looking forward to returning to the island they visited on honeymoon 34 years previously. Will it still be the same?
– In WELCOME ABOARD find out how Helena copes with the job from hell.
These short stories are a great introduction to the work of Heather Burnside. Each one makes an enjoyable quick read with a satisfying conclusion.
You may have guessed that the dominoes represent the idea of consequences but there is also plenty of conflict in the stories and a little bit of crime too.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the cover and blurb.
