Can you judge a book by its cover?

26th January 2022
With my first adult book due out soon, I thought I’d share with you the gorgeous cover. I’d love to know what you think.
Release Book Cover

Fire, Sand, Blood

Release is a mixture of thriller and literary fiction (well, that’s how I think of it anyway!), and when I first saw the cover, I thought WOW, I love this and it captures the story perfectly.

The image could be red dust from the Australian outback, but it could also be blood, or fire, or rage. I really like the black background and the sense of simplicity and focus it creates. Text have done an amazing job creating it.

What do you think?

We all know not to judge books by their covers, but I have to say this is a pretty good match. And for those who have read Stolen, it may trigger some thoughts on what Release is about. I’d love to know those thoughts so feel free to leave a comment below.

For publication dates, pre-ordering options and more info on Release, have a look at the Release Page.
