As he digs into the corrupt past of a presidential candidate, reporter Beck Rikki finds nothing is quite as it seems—not his sources, not his curious new love interest and especially not his story. Just when he thinks he’s solved the riddle, he realizes he hasn’t. A series of twists and turns form a harrowing tale of media manipulation, infidelity, character assassination and clandestine deals that threaten to enable unscrupulous politicians to covertly grab the reins of power.
Follow Beck’s pursuit of dirty money, dirty politicians and one dirty woman (wishful thinking), in this tale of intrigue, double cross and deception.
I sat down with Brad Latham, a fabulous designer and my creative director at Leader’s Edge magazine, to generate ideas for the cover of my thriller, NAKED AMBITION. We shifted gears several times before we came up with the final two covers: one for thumbnail images on the Internet and the eBook; and the other for the print version of the novel. Note how the type treatment evolved and the NAKED brand was launched after several attempts.
