M.J. Rose is the international bestselling author of 11 novels, including Lip service, The Memorist and The Hypnotist. The 2010 FoxTV series Past Life was based on her novel – The Reincarnationist.
She also co-authored Buzz Your Book. In addition, she is a founding member and board member of the International Thriller Writers and the founder of the first marketing company for authors: Authorbuzz.com. On top of all that, she runs the popular blog; Buzz, Balls & Hype.
Adding to these significant credentials, I’m delighted to report M.J. has agreed to help me choose a cover design!
Who better to help the crowd and me “source” a cover than Rose? In 1998, her Lip Service became the first e-book and the first self-published novel chosen by the Literary Guild/Doubleday Book Club as well as being the first e-book to go on to be published by a mainstream New York publishing house.
Since then, M.J. has become a successful author and a beacon to many other writers, particular those of us navigating the frontiers of new media. Furthermore, and adding to Rose’s unique qualifications for this brief, she was once the creative director at the renowned advertising agency Rosenfeld, Sirowitz and Lawson.
In the parlance of the publishing world, M.J. Rose is a stunning get. She and I look forward to seeing your handiwork. The Ipad awaits. Have at it!
Carol Hillinger’s conceptual thinking and design would certainly get my vote here.
