So I’d been toying with the idea of changing the cover for my first novel The Artist for a while now, but due to writing, stand-up comedy, bits of acting here and there, and, y’know, ‘real’ life it’s been something that had kind of fallen by the wayside.
Well, if you hadn’t guessed by the blatant title of this post, I finally got round to changing it.
I got in touch with the great people at The Cover Collection and have now got a brand new cover for The Artist.
So, without further ado, here it is!
I really wanted a simple, clean cover which hints at crime rather than beats the reader over the head with it (if you’ll excuse the pun…)
A basement cell is also pivotal to the book – this is after all where The Artist’s victims get filmed being dispatched – and I love the fact that the title sli-i-i-ghtly steps down along with the stairs.
So what do you think? Let me know in the comments!
