JT Lindroos launched my writing career. As the driving force behind PointBlank Press, he took on an unpublished nobody from Scotland who'd amassed literally hundreds of rejection slips, and risked his editorial ass on Two-Way Split. It was the second book published by PointBlank, JT's imprint at Wildside Press. He's known, quite rightly, as an excellent cover designer. But he's also one of the best editors I've worked with. I learned more in that first edit from him than I'd learned in the previous half-a-dozen years. We went our separate ways after PointBlank, but always kept in touch, and when I started publishing ebooks, there was only one person I wanted to have as my cover designer. JT, poor guy, has done about 20 covers for Two-Way Split alone now!
Today's his 40th birthday, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to see some of the other covers he's done. There's quite a variety, as you'll see below. Also one or two exclusives. SLAMMER and GUN (now there's a cover that pops) have never been seen before, and BARNEY THOMSON (another beauty) is pretty new as well. So here's to remarkably talented JT Lindroos. Have a good one, Juha!
