The original Remorseless paperback cover
I said I thought the original paperback cover was crap so here it is in its full glory...
With traditional publishing, novelists only get to pick the cover when they are selling at the level of Stephen King or James Patterson, but until then the publisher decides.
This is the best mine could come up with.
With ePublishing we get to create our own covers if we want - and I did my gunsmoke version using an image licensed for my use through Canstock photos.
I think it shouts 'crime' - especially if you're from the UK where guns are few and far between. Brian Krespan then enhanced my design, adding the red and white lettering on the current cover to make it 'pop' more!
What do you think? Maybe you think this is better.
