New Cover for The Machine - Rise of the Gifted

So I never did get round to writing a blog post for Friday, sorry. That's because I was working on the new cover for "The Machine". Finally finished it yesterday.

Thank you to everyone who voted on the other two versions of the cover. As you can see I've stuck with the overall design, but it's changed in the details and positioning :). After staring at the previous version for some times I decided the details were getting lost and it didn't quite give the message I wanted. Hence this new version with some photo-realistic detail.

So, does it grab you and does it say "telepathic figure skaters"?

The Machine
Rise of the Gifted


Rafe used to be a world-class, British figure skater competing against his arch rival, flamboyant American Louis Hayes. A catastrophic knee injury ended his career and now all he can do is look on from the sidelines. He thinks he hates Louis and wants nothing more than to see his nemesis go down in a blaze of failure.

Then mysterious men in black with guns take over a press meet, trying to arrest Louis, awakening something dangerous in their target, and setting in motion events they cannot control. Most shocking of all, Rafe finds out Louis can literally read his mind.

Dragged into a murky world of government agents and x-files by one of those x-files, Rafe finds his world view completely changing. And, along the way, his hatred for Louis proves to be something else entirely.

Now Rafe just needs to survive so he can decide what to do about it.
