So, it’s two days after the cover reveal for the second edition of my first novel, The Exercise Of Vital Powers, and I have to say it went better than I hoped. The response to the new artwork was overwhelmingly positive, and I received lots of good feedback. Now, whether that will ultimately translate to interest in actually buying and reading the book in July remains to be seen, though I’m taking it for granted that the second edition will easily outsell the first.

I’m very thankful to all those bloggers who were kind enough to host the reveal on their blogs, and I’m also grateful to everyone who subsequently shared the cover reveal on social media, giving even more exposure to the book. Who knows, maybe I’ll be able to shed the “Worst Selling Author” moniker before the year is out.

For the benefit of anyone who somehow missed it, below you can see the new cover art for my soon to be re-released debut. With any luck it will contribute to increasing the size of the audience for the sequel.
