The Heart of Escher By Jonathan Dance -Cover Reveal and Giveaway
Born and raised in Hampshire, I spent most of my childhood
dreaming up random adventures.
I left the sunny south coast to study Graphic Communication
in Bath, where I fell in love with the rolling Somerset hills when I wasn’t
walking up them.
Returning to Hampshire 6 years later, after meeting my now
wife, Claire, I enjoy a quieter life, walking in the New Forest and relaxing
with my wonderful wife and fluffy cat Molly.
I have always enjoyed telling stories, more often than not in
visual form, either in films or animations. However, the idea of Escher was too

ill-fated family holiday.

Escher, overrun by the creatures of the Nightmare forest, to return home.
Guided by the emerald-eyed cat, Sam, and befriended by the
headstrong resistance fighter, Jasper, James is taken on an adventure through a
world mirroring his own nightmares, where he is forced to confront his own
fears and the ghostly Shadow in order to save Escher.
Unbeknown to James, not only is he fighting for Escher’s
future, but also his own.

rumbles of thunder could be heard. Flashes of lightning rippled through the
haze, and with each new burst James saw imprints of sad memories amongst the
