Burning gets a sexy new cover

Hello my Freaky Darlings,

Since going full Indie last year I’ve learnt a LOT. It’s actually been a steep learning curve and being Indie is a lot more complicated than most people realise. It’s also shitloads more work than you’d think. Strangely enough, I love that! I love the fact that I’m always learning something. There isn’t a single day that goes by where I don’t learn something new about the process. I also love being completely responsible and in control of my career. For the first time in years I’m able to say that I’m truly excited about my future as an author.

But like with any learning curve I’ve made a couple mistakes along the way and I’m sure to make a few more as I go. I’ve found I learn a lot more from my mistakes. And one of those mistakes was the cover I did for Burning last year. At the time I was just starting to figure out the whole designing my own cover thing and figuring out how to use Canva and Gimp. I still am. I think it’s going to take a while for me to figure it out properly, but I’m getting there and having loads of fun with those programmes. Although there are times I scream at my screen because they won’t do what I want them to. But ja … We’re getting there. I’m screaming a little less lately.

But anyway … Enough jibber jabber.

Here are the two covers for you to see the difference.

the-race-new-ad-2

My experiment with Sci-Fi, The Race, is now available from all your favourite stores for $0.99!

It’s already getting some pretty good reviews:

“A cool, clever little story with more depth than you originally give it credit for. Superb pacing (fast and furious) and a great action packed romp, peppered with delightful f-bombs!”- Melissa Delport, author of Rainfall.

“A great, action-packed read that’s part “The Hunger Games” and part “Gladiator”.
The Race may be a quick read, but it packs a mighty punch. Loved it!” – Monique Snyman, author of Muti Nation.

“Verdict: A fast paced tale with a sassy central character. 8/10” – Paul Simpson, Sci-Fi Bulletin. You can read the full review from Paul here.

To read an excerpt from The Race pop on over here.
