Biografía del autor
I am a fan of the snow and the surf. I love books that make you think, have a black sense of humour and enjoy a laugh. I write somewhere between thriller and suspense, with a bit of psychology thrown in. I'm from New Zealand. This is my second book, the first is called Drive and is on Amazon. I like simple book covers that make a statement and have a chance to standout. Favourite authors: Iain Banks, Gillian Flynn. Movies: Pulp Fiction, Point Break.
Descripción del libro
A global rock god. An actor on a meteoric trajectory. A mercurial artist. A stellar fashion designer. All clients of The Security; all suddenly targeted. But by whom? As things go from bad to worse, it becomes clear that whoever has The Security in their sights intends to hurt them. Hadley, Paul, Arvin, and Toni – each carries a secret their assailant seems to know. The Security must work together – and quickly – to find out who is targeting them and why. As tensions rise, the four turn on each other and their clients lose faith. Who and why plays out in a game that places ambition against revenge, with brutal results. Thought I'd add a bit more detail around the story. My lead protagonist is female. She comes from a troubled background, think youth institution and has been wronged by one of the security detail. Three of the four Security staff are male, one female. They look after diverse range of artists / musicians etc. A lot of the story is about their interaction and craziness with the artists as well as the threat from the outside. The story is set in Toronto. Hope that helps!

I'm after a simple cover that has a strong image & setting associated with it. One that can extend to the back of the book in paperback. I like the thought of either a black or a grey or a white-dominant cover with a coloured font through it. I'd like something that evokes an element of mystery, something that only slightly confuses though interests the reader. Dimensions would be 6 x 9 inches. Open to font styles, here a few I've picked out of https://www.dafont.com/ Couture, Elkwood, All The Way To The Sun, Galderglynn Esquire. All Sans Serif, bold fonts. Here is an imageboard on Pinterest for the book that I've pulled together: https://pin.it/nvhyrkodafbb4o.
Lo que debe evitarse
Like the strikethrough coloured fonts that you typically get for thrillers that are set over top of images, though want something a little different that indicates this isn't your standard type of thriller. Happy to explore stock imagery as I'd like to use these for EDM's, my website: http://scottbutler.co.nz/ etc. Open to other images if the cost isn't crazy, less than $80, though needs to have indefinite access.
