I’ve just completed a cover-to-cover revision of my medical thriller, The Jihad Virus. Along the way, I’ve been reminded repeatedly just how horrific it would be if international terrorists released a new and deadly genetically altered form of the smallpox virus.
Along with the text, I’ve been revising the cover art, too. It wouldn’t do to release a new edition without giving readers the ability to quickly distinguish this new version from the old one. So I have been spending some quality time with Photoshop lately, and this is the result.
I think it gets the idea across that all is not well in the world.
Never fear though. Dr. Peyton McKean, “The Greatest Mind Since Sherlock Holmes,” is on the case. I’m sure he’ll think of something—that is, if the Jihad Virus doesn’t kill him first!
With the new cover in hand and a finished draft of the text (as of last night!), all that remains is to proofread one more time, and then put the whole thing together as a new ebook edition and a paperback version as well.
Timeframe? I’m thinking it will hit the shelves about one month from now. Stay tuned!
