I am very excited to share with you the new cover for Mindgame, my second novel and the first – and only – Malaysian lesbian thriller!
The cover is designed by Monsoon Books for the new ebook version that they will be bringing out shortly. It depicts the dark themes of the book quite well, I think:
# the mind manipulation is suggested by the dark swirling cloud to the young woman’s right
# the dream-like, hallucinations bubble up around her, partly light, partly dark
# behind all that, there is an ominous building, evoking the scientific research centre behind the dark goings-on
# the retro computer font tells us about the key role that computers and technology play in the story – but as at 2001 rather than right now
# and, of course, at the core of the story is a beautiful, dynamic Chinese female lawyer…
I am chuffed by that quote from The Independent – “What do you get if you cross John Grisham with Amy Tan… Mindgame”
The original novel came out in 2001 and has been out of print for a number of years now. So I am super delighted that it will be available again as an ebook for a global audience, including America where it was not previously available.
The book is not directly relevant to bound feet or Bound Feet Blues but the reason I’m blogging about it here is that the themes addressed in the Mindgame are part of the same continuum as the themes I explore in my solo show – as I wrote about in “What do bound feet have in common with a lesbian thriller? I hope that if you’ve been finding this blog about Bound Feet Blues interesting that you’ll check out Mindgame when it comes out ….
