Entertainment & The Arts
I publish the Section One books, a fast-paced, action-packed series about a covert intelligence agency based out of Auckland, New Zealand. My characters are operatives who deal with terrorism, organized crime and political conspiracy. They are joined by a large supporting cast of spies, assassins and vigilantes. The style of my work is similar to Lee Child, Vince Flynn and David Baldacci.
What's your vision?
I am looking to get an e-book cover designed for my novel, FALLEN ANGEL. Here's a description of the plot: Kendra Shaw was once a rising star on the counterterrorism circuit. A brilliant operative who specialised in finding, fixing and finishing threats all around the world. But after a harrowing mission goes wrong, the pressure becomes too much for her to take, and she suffers a nervous breakdown. Now disgraced and suspended from duty, Kendra is sent back home, where she spends months recovering from the trauma. She thinks she is out of the game, but any peace is short-lived. One afternoon, on a busy street corner, Kendra spots a familiar face from her past -- Ryan Hosseini, the lover she left behind years ago when she decided to serve her country. Wrestling with old regrets, she is about to approach him when she realises that he isn’t alone. A surveillance team is hovering close by, affiliation unknown, intention unknown. And before Kendra can make sense of the situation, a bomb detonates and rips through the lunchtime crowd, and amidst the fire and rubble, Ryan vanishes. Now Kendra finds herself on the hunt once more, searching the city, determined to uncover the truth. Is Ryan a victim of circumstance? Or is he a home-grown terrorist on the verge of unleashing an even deadlier attack? ++++ ++++ ++++ What do I want to see on the cover? A strong female heroine trying to survive in a dangerous urban world. This is a spy thriller with action, mystery and emotion. Give me your best blockbuster designs!
