#GuestPost ~ Carl Vonderau #Author of Murderabilia talks about the horror of being the child of a serial killer #FridayReads

Today I’m pleased to share a guest post by debut thriller author Carl Vonderau, but first here’s the book info…

William McNary is a private banker who keeps his clients’ secrets — and some of his own. His father is Harvey Dean Kogan, the infamous serial killer known as “The Preying Hands,” responsible for killing thirteen women who abused children in the Chicago area. He brutally butchered them and then arranged their bodies for his disturbing black and white photos. These pictures started the “murderabilia” market, which William can’t seem to escape. Thirty years later, William has carefully constructed his life to exclude his father’s name and history. But a threatening phone call from a man claiming to be his brother shatters his idyllic life and makes him fear for his family’s safety.

The book is available for preorder from Amazon UK | Amazon US

#GuestPost by Michele Gorman ~ UK versus US Book Covers @MicheleGormanUK #RomanticComedy

I’m delighted to welcome Michele Gorman with her thoughts on the differing tastes in book covers, prior to the March 14th release of her latest book, The Truth About Love And Dogs. Over to you, Michele…

How often do you pick up a book because of the cover? I do it all the time. It’s what makes me take the time to look at the description, read the first few paragraphs, and, if I like all that I see, decide to buy it. 

So, is it any wonder that covers cause us authors so much angst? They might even make us more nervous than writing the book itself. That’s because writing is an evolutionary process. It takes months to do, plus there are many rounds of editing. But the cover is the instant, one-and-only first impression your book will make. It’s like getting ready for a first date with someone that you really really want to impress! You’ve only got one chance.

We are all main characters in our own minds; in our own worlds. The people around us are the supporting characters. In some ways it’s an abstract concept.

The supporting character. Discuss.
