Nick's Cover Reveal

Hello my Publishness peeps! I am here today to share in the great stuff of writing and reveals.

Nick Wilford is here to let the world know about A Change of Mind and Other Stories. Now, for the cover reveal in three...



Title: A Change of Mind and Other Stories
Author: Nick Wilford
Genre: Contemporary speculative fiction
Cover Design: Rebekah Romani
Release Date: May 25th 2015

A Change of Mind and Other Stories consists of a novella, four short stories and one flash fiction piece. This collection puts the extremes of human behaviour under the microscope with the help of lashings of dark humour, and includes four pieces previously published in Writer’s Muse magazine.

In A Change of Mind, Reuben is an office worker so meek and mild he puts up with daily bullying from his boorish male colleagues as if it’s just a normal part of his day. But when a stranger points him in the direction of a surgeon offering a revolutionary new procedure, he can’t pass up the chance to turn his life around.

But this isn’t your average surgeon. For a start, he operates alone in a small room above a mechanic’s. And he promises to alter his patients’ personality so they can be anything they want to be…

In Marissa, a man who is determined to find evidence of his girlfriend’s infidelity ends up wondering if he should have left well alone.

The Dog God finds a chink in the armour of a man with a megalomaniacal desire to take over the world.

In The Insomniac, a man who leads an obsessively regimented lifestyle on one hour’s sleep a night finds a disruption to his routine doesn’t work for him.

Hole In One sees a dedicated golfer achieving a lifelong ambition.

The Loner ends the collection on a note of hope as two family members try to rebuild their lives after they are torn apart by jealousy.

What a kaleidoscope of stories he has here. I like that there are many adventures in one book, though, the story about a character's golf ambitions seems so way on the other side of all the other tales in this novella. The one about a guy seeing a surgeon who works above a mechanic shop is kinda creepy and for some reason, I think it would make for an interesting film (especially the part about him altering people's had me thinking of "Limitless" with Bradley Cooper)...and I haven't even read the story, lol.

Thanks for helping me spread the word, Angela!

Thank you, folks. Nicole, hopefully there is a good diversity within the stories and a film sounds good to me!
