Big Mouth recommends my debut as "bloody good but a little bit different" for Christmas


Scott Pack, controversial publishing guru and self-declared big mouth (I can tell you he's rather more charming in person than such a description would imply), recommends my debut novel THE BETHLEHEM MURDERS (US title THE COLLABORATOR OF BETHLEHEM) for a Christmas gift on his blog. Writes Scott, as he roasts his chestnuts over an open fire at his home office in Windsor, "If you like crime novels and are looking for something that is bloody good but a little bit different then see if you can sneak one of these into your stocking." Seasons greetings to you, too, Scott, as I look over the dusty hillside toward Bethlehem from my office window -- where the only thing roasting in the Middle East's so-called winter is me...

Exactly, Matt. Stay with him, he's a good man. Additionally. of course, that's a hell of a goodlooking cover.

You're right, IJP: when my UK publisher was readying my first novel, he told me my name would be bigger than the title, "so that people will think they should know who you are." Smart fellow.

Yup! I just looked at it, too. I've been designing some covers for myself. Take note of the size of the author's name. Usually publishers don't think about the importance of the "brand."

Damn good looking cover, Matt. Hopes this sells like the proverbial hotcakes.
