|Brand new totally sexy cover!|
|The old cover|
It’s not a secret that quite a few women aren’t particularly keen on football. Therefore, if they’re faced with the image of a soccer ball on the cover of a book they might just assume it’s a book that concentrates just a bit too much on the sport, and bypass it without giving it a second look. That might be the case, I don’t know, but the idea of giving the book a little makeover was one I became quite keen on, because, let’s face it, people do judge books by their covers – especially books by indie authors like myself. We can’t sell books on our name alone. We aren’t lucky enough to be able to do that.
So, hopefully the new cover for ‘Striker’ gets the message of the book across a lot more than the old one did. It’s basically a love story, after all – a bit of a racy love story, I’ll give you that, but I think the cover kind of tells you that. Hopefully! It isn’t a book about football, and you certainly don’t have to have an interest in the game to enjoy this book. It’s sexy escapism, pure and simple. And I hope that’s what the new cover portrays.
'Striker' concentrates very much on the off-pitch action, on the glamorous, and not-so-glamorous, lives of the people involved with the so-called Beautiful Game. Because, as far as this book is concerned, there's more to score than just goals...
