Good II be Bad Cover Mark 1
You didn't think I'd forgotten the Bad II the Bone girls did you? Not a chance, rude bwoy.
They are the only women I will openly admit to stalking - metaphorically speaking that is, and if that was a crime, I'd smile fondly at the criminal record I received. Bad II the Bone has been running nicely in the background while I finish the first draft of my Young Adult Sci-Fi/Fantasy novel - Last Prince of Alkebulahn. The story is coming together really well and I can reveal the girls are up against Miranda Pheare - female vampire from Jamaica, who is a supernatural force of nature. I also decided not use the Russian werewolf idea I had and save it for another adventure. But believe me when I say Miranda can hold her own and makes London bleed for its complicity in destroying her lover, a hundred and thirty years ago.
Its a cool concept that gives me the opportunity to use the familiar horror tropes we are so fond of but in a different way, an Urban Fantastic way.
The cover that I'm featuring is my designers first shot at a cover design for the second in the installment of Bad II the Bone series called Good II be Bad. The unique challenge I face in producing covers for my books is the chronic lack of ethnic models in action poses. Now add the fact that I'm looking for female Chinese, African-American and Afro Caribbean characters and the odds of creating my kind of covers have just rocketed to an almost absurd level of difficulty. I know I'm giving my designer grey hairs but he's a genius for finding ways to produce what I'm looking for.
Not bad for a first attempt.
The cockroaches are cool too because they are very significant to the plot.
When I asked him how he got the tattoo on Suzy Wongs arm, he just chuckled ominously. "If I tell you mate, I'll have to kill you."
I believe him.
