When I come down with writers’ block, I like to write marketing text to help inspire me. This is the current draft for Life of Secrets:
She lived a double life: professor by day, thief by night. But all that comes crashing down when she’s framed for a murder she didn’t commit — the assassination of a Presidential candidate.
Alyssa Chambers is on the run from the largest manhunt in American history. Every federal law enforcement agency is competing to bring her in first. The media are demonizing her to the public. And her only hope is the one man she can’t seem to stop betraying.
To survive and clear her name, she’ll have to confront the truth about her past and worse, the truth about herself.
I have some very specific ideas for the cover art for Life of Secrets, and nothing I have seen so far really fits. The gentleman who did the cover art for Death of Secrets for me did great work, and I would like to work with him again. My struggle is that his pre-made covers that are available right now don’t quite fit Life of Secrets, and getting a custom one done gets expensive fast.
I am giving some thought to trying it on my own. I’ve learned a lot about this since the last time I tried to do my own cover, and I think I know the tricks that make it look professional.
But I love this story too much to put it out with anything but a first-rate book cover, so I’m not sure whether I’ll be willing to take the risk or not.
Here’s a great bargain: the Kindle edition of Death of Secrets is now only 99 cents! If you haven’t tried it yet, now is the time!
I want to build up as many readers as possible in the run up to launching Life of Secrets. This should help get as many people as possible looking forward to the next book.
