‘DECEPTION: A Love of Lies’ book cover comparison

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.

New Deception Book Cover

It’s interesting to see the change of the cover since its revamp too.

Original cover (left). New cover (right).

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.

Dark fantasy short story Alive T. J. Blake

It’s a massive improvement on the last cover for Alive and truly echoes the darkness, fear and suspense of the story.

This amazing cover wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for the talent of Jordan Baker from The Bakery Creative. Thank you for helping me and well done for doing a fine job!

Dark fantasy short story

Although it may seem biased of me to say, but I love Alive. It may only be a short story, but it’s one I really enjoyed writing and re-reading. I read it recently and it had me on edge.

Here’s what other readers are saying about Alive:

Read the whole book continuously… ‘Alive’ is a dark fantasy. I must say I enjoyed the book very much as I’m addicted to dark fantasy stories. I love his writing style and I’m a happy reader.– Amazon.com

Read this short story whilst I was on holiday in Cyprus and loved it! The afternoon passed by so quickly as I couldn’t put it down, a great little page turner. A creepy story line with a great twist, would highly recommend.– Goodreads
