Win a Cover Flat of THE GUILTY

No, Cover Flat is not the name of a band or some place in Colorado. It's the physical mock-up of a book package (without the actual pages), and I just received mine for THE GUILTY. They look pretty spiffy, and as much as I liked the cover for THE MARK, I have to say I think this new cover is actually better. The colors pop (industry slang for 'doesn't make you want to gouge your eyes out'), and we're continuing with the bullet hole motif, where the bullet hole leads to a step-back page which contains blurbs and reviews. Continuing the same motif is one example of branding (industry slang for "letting people know the same guy wrote this book too").

The cover and back cover aren't the totally finished version, however, as my publisher made a few copy (industry slang for "words on the cover") changes, and though they won't appear on the flats or galleys they'll be on the finished books.

So starting today, you can win a signed cover flat of THE GUILTY, the next Henry Parker novel which comes out February 26th 2008. Just post a comment here, or if you don't have a blogger account you can post it on MySpace or just email me at jason@jasonpinter.com. The winner will be chosen at random on Monday, October 8th.

So, uh, when do we get to see the cover?

I haven't seen the final, final, final cover yet. The art is done (and it's good) but they're tweaking the quotes and blurbs on the cover and step-back. So the simple answer is I don't have it yet.

February 26th is my dad's birthday, so you know what he'll be getting! (Okay, so maybe he'll also be getting drunk like any other retired cop on his birthday, but when he sobers up he will definitely want to read your book. And if he doesn't like it, that faux bullet hole on the cover might become a real one -- and that's always fun, too.)
