I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. Thanks for featuring my books today, Olga, and your observations. I love hearing how others view the story. Cheers.

    1. Thanks, Jo-Anne, for sharing your books and you insights into rebranding. I hope your books take flight!

  2. I find that whole re-branding process very interesting. As someone not involved, just a potential reader, I look at the original covers, and immediately think ‘Romance’. The typeface and style reminded me of books in that genre years ago. Then the new covers and style; they immediately shout ‘Thriller’, or ‘Contemporary Drama’. Just my own opinion.
    I wish JP well with her new designs, and hope they find an expanded market for her work.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. There are authors who have a very clear idea in mind and have it all mapped out. For some others, things sometimes go in unexpected directions, and then we might end up with something quite different to what we started with. I remember JP first was planning on writing a trilogy, and then ended up writing a fourth book in the trilogy, and well… You are right though, and covers are also of a period. Some are classics and it’s difficult to imagine some books with a different cover, but others… I’ve started reading The Old Remington. Oh, I do love a story about a writer, and I expect plenty of twists!

      1. More twists than you can shake a stick at, Olga. 🙂

        1. Great news! I’ll have to get my skates on as I can see you’ve started another one. 😉

          1. I wasn’t going to start a new serial so quickly. But I changed my mind after re-working an idea that I have had for some years now. 🙂

          2. Oh, that sounds intriguing… I have a few of those filed up somewhere too…

    1. Thanks, Sally. It is a process a few authors might have thought about, but having a practical perspective is always useful. It’s a fascinating series, and I hope I’ll catch up the rest of it soon. Have a great Tuesday!

  3. Very interesting interview, Olga. Now I have food for thoughts for the day 🙂

    1. Thanks, Inese. It’s the beginning of what sounds like a fascinating series, for sure. ♥

      1. It sounds like that! <3
