Biografía del autor
Hello, I’m Simon Paul Woodward. I’m a writer. I live just south of London (London, England that is … not one of the 10 Londons in the USA, London Kiribati or 8837-London, which is an asteroid). It’s best to be precise about these things. Before I didn’t live on an asteroid, I was born in the Midlands, studied in the North and relocated to the South. My accent is a bit of a mess. I’ve written six books: two novels for young adults (All The Dead Things: Deathlings Chronicles #1 and Dead Weapons); one young-adult novella (Scrimshaw: Deathlings Chronicles #2); and three collections of horror short stories for adults (these are in at the editing stage and are due to be released later in 2020). I love Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Clive Barker, Michael Marshall Smith, Patrick Ness, China Mieville, The Flaming Lips, Elbow, Ennio Morricone, Sergio Leone, David Lynch, David Lean, Johnny Marr, Max Richter, football and running, gin and bagels… but marzipan was created by the Devil (after he finished spawning brussel sprouts).
Descripción del libro
A young man framed for murder. Cyborg black-ops soldiers. A race to save a missing father. Ciaran agrees to do one last job for this gangster brother: delivering an AI-powered gun stolen from a covert government agency to an underworld boss. As payment, he learns that somebody faked their soldier-father’s death. When the job goes wrong, the gun fastens itself to Ciaran’s hand. He’s framed for murder and forced to flee the police, gangsters and cyborg black-ops soldiers. Everybody wants the gun and Ciaran is expendable. As his pursuers close in, Ciaran discovers a link between his father’s disappearance and the covert agency. Now it’s a race against time to stop their plans and save his father from a fate far worse than death. Dead Weapons is an action-packed cyberpunk horror. If you like a fast-paced adventure, government conspiracies and hacker-heroes, then you’ll love Simon Paul Woodward’s novel.

The original cover for this book - you can see it on my website (www.simonpaulwoodward.com) is too static. It doesn't convey the fast pace of the book or the elements of horror and cyber punk. The new cover needs to have energy - the protagonist is constantly on the run. And he is pursued by a secret government organisation that using genetically altered cyborg-soldiers. I have attached some covers I like below. Paperback dimensions: 12.7 x 2.3 x 20.3 cm

Evaluaciones del cliente
This is my second time working with Pintado and, as before, it was a pleasure. High-quality work, super helpful, and gracefully accommodating of my requests.
I had so many people tell me that they considered and purchased my first book because of the cover and that's especially huge for an indie author. There was no question in my mind that I had to work with Pintado for this book. I certainly hope to work with them again on the next book.
