The Hegemony Network
I launched one of the UK’s first football fanzines in 1988 (sixth, I think). There have been hundreds, if not thousands, of supporters magazine titles published since. As a fanzine pioneer, I was invited by Telerate (now Reuters), to write a daily diary and fanzine for their company intranet, to be read by staff around the world. This was in the summer of 1990, and it has been suggested it was the first ever online blog of any description. I continued to write and edit football magazines for a further twenty years, during which time I launched a national title and a ‘What’s On & Where To Go Guide' to South London. I wrote for most British football related magazines along with local newspapers, the London Metro, and appeared on London radio stations with post-match summaries. For those with long memories, I also wrote reports for Ceefax. Other spin-offs of the magazine included two club specific books, one of which reached number four in The Times best selling sports books list. All this was done while in full time employment for a sports merchandising company. Over the past few years I have returned to my passion for writing by developing and building websites and blogs, including www.chipsandcrisps.com where I have taste-tested and reviewed over 1,500 different varieties from around the world.
If power corrupts, what happens when the corrupt have all the power? A renovation contract at The Houses of Parliament should be the job of a lifetime for heating engineer Eddie Hill. Instead, it sets him on a collision course with the most powerful man in England, who will stop at nothing to recover the secrets behind the assassination of Spencer Perceval. The only British Prime Minister killed in office. Sir Richard Plume heads a group of global investors who maintain power and influence by employing the same methods as their ancestors for over two hundred years. A process, hidden from public view, but in plain sight, for all to see. As Eddie attempts to unravel the truth behind The 1812 Club, he is presented with an offer too good to refuse. But should he change his life forever or forever change his life?
The kind of people that would read Dan Brown, Steve Berry and Ernest Dempsey. It is a mystery adventure, crime novel, and it is to covers like theirs that I would look for inspiration.
I previously launched this contest earlier this year, and worked with a designer to get what I was looking for. You can see the design I originally chose here: https://www.pcasella.com/books.html Unfortunately during the design process, I lost contact with the designer. I do not know if he was experiencing personal issues, but the handover was not completed. I should also add, this is one of three cover design contests I have launched together. I would like to work with the same designer for each. You can see the cover I chose for the first contest I launched on the same page as the above. The third cover is for my latest book, which has been launched for the first time. You do not need to enter all three contests, to begin with. I only need one of the designs to work from to find the person I would like to work with in the future for all projects. The most important thing will be an original theme should be shared across all books. I am open-minded but also very conscious of how important a stand out cover will be vital for Amazon sales.
