New cover idea for GANI & SEAN – thought the rocks with the gun sort of floating in air above them was a tad bizarre in appearance, so changed the “theme” of the chosen cover design. I think I like the “wine” colored font, too.
I continue my debate with myself — do crime novels written by women sell? Should I change my name on my second novel from Jane Cooper Easton to Jack Winter. I thought of this male author name this morning almost as I opened my eyes to the day. ( I think Jack Winter or is it Winter Jack is an alcohol of some kind, perhaps in Great Britain? )
Will men be more interested in a crime novel written by Jack Winter than they are in one written by Jane Easton?
And what — if any! — are the differences between a novel written for women and a novel written for men!?
My rough draft of GANI & SEAN is done. I just finished it. Now for the hard work — the editing. Reading and re-reading. To make this process easier, I usually order a proof copy of the book, use pencil to mark the whole manuscript.
