You didn't think I forgot, did you?
I've had the longest day EVER. Yes, it was longer than yours.
Spent the day working proposals and then I came home this evening to find the first draft of the cover for BOOK 1 -- formerly the Seven Year Itch now The Bigot List. I've spent the last few hours falling in love with it. This was the initial title of Book 1, the very first one I conceived. But then I decided to get cute. So, I'm back to a true thriller title.
In the re-edited version,The Bigot List, I explain what the list is in the first chapter. There are no new chapters. Just things shifted around and cut a bit to increase the excitement. Same exact story and ending.
But for those who haven't read it, the bigot list in the intelligence world is a list of personnel who have access to super secret sensitive intelligence or human sources. If something happens to that intelligence and it is compromised or a source gets whacked, the list is the primary means to help quickly narrow down who is responsible--it helps catch moles.
Supposed to anyway.
Doesn't always work because even in the cleared world, people talk too much. But it gives you a better starting place than EVERYBODY.
So, that's what the list is...and this, I believe, is my new cover. I'm going to sleep on it but I love it. Love it. Love it. I would totally buy this book.
I did a quick mock up of a full cover just so I can get the true feel of it. I'm so happy. And there are three more to go!!
My boss gave me the day off work tomorrow so I will be scarce. BUT never fret. I will try to get something posted before my fun begins.
