I am participating in a cover reveal for J Taylor publishing. So let me first show you the cover:
I have to say I am not a fan of the cover. The city looks a bit too normal and then that scary face in the water more likely scares me away than entice me to read this. I do like the colours, but really that face is just too creepy. I also think the moon in the sky is a nice addition. So I almost already convinced myself that I wouldn’t be adding this to my to-read list, but then I saw the blurb and I have to say the blurb is a whole lot better than the cover in my opinion.
A Demons city Novel
by Jonathan Lister
Release Date: November 4, 2013
Blurb: Werewolf. Bar bouncer. Dad. Standard traits for any self-respecting, reformed criminal, living under the radar in Demos City. For Leon Gray, normal is what he wants—for himself and his not-yet-changed teenage daughter.
Playing bodyguard to crusading reporter David Hastings would totally ruin Leon’s peace, especially since Hastings has hired killers on his trail, pros who know how he takes his espresso in the morning, and where Leon lives.
The payoff, though, would fill up Shauna’s empty college fund, and in a battle between opportunity and ordinary, money wins. He just has to keep Hastings alive long enough to cash the check.
If only he didn’t have to save his daughter, too.
As a budding wolf, she’s piqued the interest of a local pack Alpha—one Leon knows will steal Shauna right out from under him the first chance he gets.
Leon isn’t about to give up on his daughter or Hastings, and will fight for both longer than it took Demos City to see werewolves as equals to humans.
He can only hope it doesn’t take a thousand years.
No matter what issues I might have with the cover, the blurb sounds really interesting and original. A book from a dad’s point of view, who also is a werewolf? Okay that sounds amazing. And did you read one of those last sentences, werewolves are seen as equals to humans, yeah I definitely want to read this book.
So what do you think? Do you like the cover or not? And what about the blurb? Sounds like something you would read?
