Recently, I had come to the conclusion that I needed to updated the cover for The Cold Forever. While I love what I'd originally designed, I now realize that it is too abstract for a science fiction book. It does have this heavy, foreboding feeling to it, that I dig but it doesn't really express what the book could be about, at first glance.
The new cover has a proper science fiction feel to it. It has a recognizable spacey background, as well as a mysterious, strangely texture figure in the foreground. The figure could actually represent several characters in the book, but primarily it foreshadows the character that is the bloodline of the story.
In addition to the cover, I had decided to finally address some of the minor errors that have crept up as I received feedback on the book. So once the manuscript has been updated, I will redeploy it as a special, "revised" edition of the book, which will include the new front and back covers.
Finally, I have updated the synopsis to be a little bit more in depth and, hopefully, more accurate, while remaining mysterious and enticing. Check it out:
When a voyager from beyond the stars crash lands on Earth, he inadvertently unleashes a global catastrophe that begins to unravel time itself. Now a team of desperate strangers must dodge devastating time fluxes, stop an escalating war and face a remorseless enemy from the future that cannot be killed.
But first, they will have to find each other, through
the ever shifting timelines of The Cold Forever…

He is forever urged on by a quest to recover his memories and the ethereal presence that lives in his mind, which threatens to unravel what is left of his sanity.

While I finish up the cover and the revision of the manuscript, the book will remain available for free on Amazon as well as all the usually eBook distribution places. Now's the time to get it folks, guilt free, because after the update, I will go back to charging for it. Soon after which I will begin a more active and aggressive marketing strategy.
