COVER FOR "THE BITCH"

Hi folks,

Just got the final cover for THE BITCH which will be coming out soon from Bare Knuckles Press! I love it! And, your suggestions made a really big impact on it. All who posted suggestions used have been noted and will receive free copies. I want to single out one from Anthony Neil Smith, who suggested that the BKP colophone be relocated from the upper left-hand corner to the bottom right hand corner and that made a huge difference. Thanks, Mr. Smith and thanks to all the others who weighed in with super suggestions.

And now... ta-da (imagine a big drum roll)... here's my cover.





I'm jazzed!

Blue skies,
Les

You are kidding me! I am a new writer, and just read Hooked, and it was so wonderfully helpful. I saw a comment of yours on a blog I follow and am just thrilled to have stumbled across your blog... Thank goodness for the wonder that is the Internet :)

Hi Kim and welcome to our little family here! Glad you liked Hooked. And, we're likewise thrilled to have you join us.

Bare Knuckles Press, eh? Man, bare knuckles out in the weather on this cover would get frostbit soon enough!
Looks really good; if ever visuals can make readers want to read, this is one fer shez. And I say that w/o having read a word. I did get the free Kindle thingaling for PC's which I never would'a unless I read this blog, so I may yet.

That's one of the better covers I've seen in a while mate. Well done!

JJ Toner said...

Nice one Les. You seem to have a b/w theme running through all these book covers.

Thanks Brian, Judd and JJ! I wish I could take some credit for this cover but I can't. It's all due to Eddie Vega and the artistic crew at Butterflies and Hurricanes in Prague. Great artists! Eddie and they work extremely hard on getting the right look.

They're the same ones who knocked it out of the park for the cover for THE RAPIST.

Appreciate your support!

Love the cover. Nice, clean, dramatic and bold. That's an eye catcher and that's what you want! :)
