As I promised, here is the sensational cover for BAD DEEDS, brilliantly executed by designer Allen Chiu. You can click on the images for a better look, and to read the back-cover copy.
First, the front cover, as it will appear on the Kindle ebook edition; and below it, the wrap-around version — back, spine, and front — for the print edition:
I hope you are even half as impressed by this masterful, evocative work as I am.
Now, in answer to the constant question: When will the book be published?
Obviously, it has taken me much longer to write than I anticipated. However, I’ve been making great progress lately, and at my current pace, I believe I will be done with the writing by Christmas. Thanks to the wonders of self-publishing technology, I should be able to have all of the editing, revisions, proofreading, interior design, and layout completed within a month after I complete the draft. That means I anticipate publication now in early February — or about 75 – 90 days from now, barring any more unforeseen challenges.
My goal now is to make sure that the story lives up to this stellar cover — and to your expectations. The back cover summary hints at the plot; I’ll offer an expanded description in coming weeks.
Thanks so much to all of you who loved HUNTER, who have enthusiastically reviewed it and recommended it to friends, who have encouraged and prodded me to write further Dylan Hunter adventures, and who have been so patient in waiting for me to sort out and produce this sequel. I do hope you will find it to be worth the wait.
