As much as I loved the cover, it’s been bothering me for a while, something wasn’t right. So I finally managed to get some time to work on a new version. Same concept but cleaner. What do you think?
It should be in paperback as well within days.
The President Killed His Wife
The President has killed his wife… on live TV, during the State of the Union address!
FBI agent Rogan Bricks is a recluse with a murky past. Just an ex-soldier happy to be low-profile. While he’s shocked watching from his mansion in Alaska, he’s not particularly distressed. He’s never cared about politics anyway.
But everything changes when he’s personally summoned to Washington to lead the investigation.
Why him? Why is his life suddenly in danger from assassins? And why is everything starting to point toward a conspiracy?
I’ve been writing up a storm this week and I’m working on a brand-new thriller which I’m confident will be ready for the beginning of the summer, just in time for beach reading.
While doing this, I also fiddled with a pet project, rebranding my Rogan Bricks novels. I’m not the greatest cover designer in the world but I enjoy doing it, it’s my pastime. It was therefore fortunate that I was able to mix business with pleasure.
You see, the first thing you learn in Thriller Publishing 101 (which sadly isn’t a real thing) is that a series should be cohesive, have a visual cue that links all the books. I failed miserably at that. I love my Rogan Bricks covers but there was no way to tell The President Killed His Wife and Counterblow were part of the same series.
Without redoing the covers entirely, I found a way to identify them and I quite like how it turned out!
