I hope you like it. I hired it out, didn't like it, so I ended up making my own. The story is a near future thriller.

Here is the back cover blurb:

In the future, serious crime has all but disappeared. With the advent of BioNarratus’s Vitasync neurochip, recording every aspect of your life has become the law. Without it you can’t get a bank account, medical insurance, or a job. Unbeknownst to Cole Westbay, a government agency is bent on using the neurolink tools he helped develop to target and kill potential enemies. Before he can act, he wakes with his neurochip destroyed and his recent memory wiped.
Now the centerpiece of a government conspiracy and the target of every newsgroup on the planet, he’s on the run trying to solve the mystery before they shut him up permanently.

Cover Reveal in 3 Days!

I have the covers ready to go. Last night I finished the first round of line edits with my editor. I did a round of developmental editing then this, with one more line edit to go to make sure everything is where it's supposed to be, then I will be publishing on Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing. I'll be adding in a print version as well, but the ebook will be exclusive with Amazon for awhile. I have to say I'm very excited!

Working with Lauren Donovan of The Book Foundry has been awesome! She did an initial read through and she got everything I was trying to do right away. She even picked up on the subtle things I laced into the story, which made me quite happy. She had some insightful ideas about how to I might improve the story and then she did a wonderful job on the line edits. Her attention to detail is amazing! I couldn't be happier. I just wish I had done this years ago. She is very reasonably priced, and I give her my highest recommendation as an editor. Thank you, Lauren! My story is so much better with her help.

Look for the cover reveal for Only a Little Blood on Monday!
