McSwain & Beck get a makeover!

Cover-Low-Res-BORDER-FINAL

In this new world of publishing, we writers are in the driver’s seat and in charge of navigating the roads necessary to achieve our success. Sometimes, we may take a wrong turn and need to turn around, and sometimes, we may need to chart a difference course.  In that vein, McSwain & Beck are getting a makeover!

When I first contacted an artist to design the original covers for Gone at Zero Hundred 00:00 and Fireworks on the 4th, I wanted to show that the stories were filled with action and adventure, and give the reader an idea about the cool fictional location that the series was created in. The current covers definitely do that, in spades. They’re beautiful.

The reality is; I should have focused on showing the mystery and danger involved in the story. So I have taken the plunge. I hired David C. Cassidy to revamp the covers. In Gone at Zero Hundred 00:00 the crimes depicted are straight from the headlines-type stories, and developed from interviews with big-city detectives – the subject matter becoming more prominent every day.

The new cover for Gone at Zero Hundred 00:00 shows that the story is gritty, edgy, and reveals the danger inside the pages.

Updated cover for Fireworks on the 4th revealed in the next few days…
