The covers make them look professional.
This is the first piece of concept art Ibrahim created for my Canadian techy-mystery-thriller that I’m still calling /Canada (although I’m not crazy about that title).
Spoiler: I’m not very good with last names.
Last spring, as I sat down at my desk, I found a tiny pin propped up on my keyboard. It was a small token from a team building course that my boss found tucked away in her drawer and she thought I’d like it. I didn’t know that at the time. I just stared at it, confused. Had I been secretly initiated into a special group of excelleron-ness?
Obviously the first thing I did was google the pin – followed by a quick sense of disappointment because my imagination had come up with a better, yet less-plausible, version that involved awards of awesomeness.
BUT, I liked the idea of finding something that led to a grand adventure. It sounded pretty exciting in my head. So I wrote another book. After finishing the first draft, I’ve been making adjustments, tweaks, and changes. I kinda like where it is now (almost a year since I started it).
This book follows Mckenzie Noble, an app developer in Toronto, who happens to uncover a Canadian conspiracy of somewhere-between-moderate-and-epic proportions. It starts by finding a tiny pin at her desk.
The working title so far is /Canada
So, yeah, I should probably write more about it on this blog. You know, before I get carried away and start working on something else because I’m suddenly struck by a crazy idea.
