By now you should all be aware that the re-release of my debut novel, The Exercise Of Vital Powers, was last week, Monday. You should also have noted the most readily apparent difference between the first and second editions of the book: the cover artwork. Once I had decided to move ahead with a revised second edition, I knew that the book’s outer appearance would be the most crucial factor in improving its fortunes over its predecessor―even more so than the editing. This post will give you a little insight into my thought processes when it came to the design of the new cover.
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.

Greetings folks! For those of you who don’t know, the “long awaited” cover reveal for the second edition of my debut novel, The Exercise Of Vital Powers, will take place next Monday, and I’ll finally be able to share the awesome new artwork with you all. In the meantime, I am currently looking for other bloggers willing to host the cover reveal on their blogs. At present, three people have generously agreed to participate on the day, and I’m waiting to hear back from a few more. Ideally, I’d like as many blogs as possible to be involved, so I’m posting this call for volunteers to help me forever banish all memories of the original artwork for the book. 😉
