The New Look for "Pilate's Cross"

Very excited to unveil the new cover for the first book in the John Pilate Mysteries, "Pilate's Cross"!

I'm working with the talented Jason McIntyre to reimagine the covers of the first four books in the series. This is no slight to the original covers done by a talented artist, but I want a more consistent, cohesive, and yes, much more commercially-viable aesthetic that makes it easier for readers to identify the series by the cover.

We will roll out the new covers for "Pilate's Key", "Pilate's Ghost" and "Pilate's Blood" over this next few months.

I hope you will agree that Jason's work evokes the unique mood of each book, while still tying together the serialistic threads.

Also, in the case of this first book, this is the third revised edition. We fixed a few minor errors and reset the interior design for the paperback version. So, if you have this #ebook in your Amazon.com #Kindle now, it should download this newer (final!) version next time you refresh it.

Please note the new paperback is not yet directly tied to the existing Kindle and audiobook pages yet, so if you are interested in picking up this new version in paperback, be sure to use the link below until the old version is retired.

NEW Third Edition:

And if you need a copy of the old paperback version, that link is still live for a few more days--just goto the ebook version and click over to the paperback.

Second Edition Paperback:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/055743047X/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_oZvACbRMMGHMB

Jason also did a version for the audiobook:

And of course if you want an autographed version, just message me here and we will get it taken care of.

Thanks for your support. I hope you like the new, fresh look for the John Pilate Mysteries!


Keep reading...
