After a long absence, I am back in the writing game with my next book. For those who might wonder why, ask the corrupt US publisher who had me trapped in a three year contract and never paid any royalties. Alas, now I'm free to publish at will.
We had only just begun the marketing process and I pick up a funny notion about cover designs across waters. I have had favourable feedback from US folks regarding the cover design, but it seems the cover is too offensive for South African stores. I know some releases have different covers for different countries.
I am not sure if it is because of the bit of blood on the cover or because of what the cover represents. Maybe with the issue of brutal farm attacks, it is a bit too close to home? A section of the story does touch on this topic.
What do you think? Would this cover offend or intrigue you?
