You may remember that a few months ago I announced that my 2016 novel, DECEPTION, was getting a new book cover. Although I released and revealed the change, I never actually got a copy of the new cover for myself.
Yesterday, my new DECEPTION copy arrived.
It’s interesting to see the change of the cover since its revamp too.
The original cover was artsy and although I loved it at the time, the quality of it wasn’t good enough. The coloured focus eye line effect was a nice touch (albeit slightly cheesy) around Eve and her dog Ella, but the cover overall needed to reflect the dark and mysteriousness of the story.
The crisp, cleaner cover is much darker, but then the story is quite dark, so it fits with the narrative.
The typography is neater too, especially with the inclusion of ‘A Love of Lies‘ on the front and spine.
I love the fade effect on ‘Blake‘ on the front cover. It’s a minor touch but I think it adds to the mystery of the novel.
Fancy reading my psychological thriller novel, DECEPTION?
‘DECEPTION: A Love of Lies’ is available on Amazon as both an eBook and paperback, check it out – https://www.amazon.co.uk/Deception-Love-T-J-Blake-ebook/dp/B01J0434K4
