    The Chip Whisperer - cover design vote!

    Post  UKSteve on September 9th 2016, 1:05 pm

    So after not having a title last week, I went for something entirely different in the end, and here it is: The Chip Whisperer is the first part of The Ambivalence Chronicles - a comic fantasy in 8 bits.

    It tells the story of Phil Grundy, whose latest eBay purchase - a Sinclair ZX81 - attracts unusual attention not just from a fellow collector, but from the mysterious Assembly of Newly Uplifted Systems.

    And I've now got five possible covers to choose from, and to help me pick I'm inviting you to rate and comment on what you like, what you don't, and which you'd look twice at on amazon.

    Click here to see the options and vote!

    Thanks for helping!

    Some have been revised slightly, and I've narrowed it down to three, but still can't choose!

    Having not read the book I don't know which best matches the content, but #44 in the middle would be my ignorant pick. Great job on those, btw!

    Well, the final cover is in, and looks like this:

    And if you like Brit humour (I'm too modest to throw around names like 'Douglas' and 'Adams') and have 99c (or local equivalent) to spare, it's available for pre-order now (kindle format only for the time being)..

    Cool.
    I shall pre-order this, and I'll give it a mention in my next bulletin video.

    All mentions gratefully received of course Smile

    I should probably add though, there's no intentional Christian message to this story, but as a Christian author I can't guarantee some parallels won't crop up later in the series...

    That's fine. I've mentioned Christian authors writing mainstream stuff before.
