Nick's Cover Reveal

Hello, I have been one of the Walking Dead.  I had a bad allergy reaction from a medication I took for an upper respiratory infection.  I am better.  But enough about me-Today I want to shine the spotlight on Nick Wilford's latest endeavor!  

Nick's cover reveal!  The cover was created by artist,
Rebekah Romani. This collection puts the extremes of  being  human under a microscope. It includes four pieces previously published in Writer’s Muse magazine.

Cheers, Nick!   I love the look of the cover-the wonder of how does our inside world pair with our outside one.  
Nick-I am anxious to read your book~

 Nick is a Writer, Stay at home dad, and Freelance editor, and was a  journalist.  You can learn more about Nick at 

Title: A Change of Mind and Other Stories
Author: Nick Wilford
Genre: Contemporary speculative fiction
Release Date: May 25th 2015
A Change of Mind and Other Stories consists of a novella, four short stories and one flash fiction piece. This collection puts the extremes of human behaviour under the microscope with the help of lashings of dark humour, and includes four pieces previously published in Writer’s Muse magazine.
In A Change of Mind, Reuben is an office worker so meek and mild he puts up with daily bullying from his boorish male colleagues as if it’s just a normal part of his day. But when a stranger points him in the direction of a surgeon offering a revolutionary new procedure, he can’t pass up the chance to turn his life around.
But this isn’t your average surgeon. For a start, he operates alone in a small room above a mechanic’s. And he promises to alter his patients’ personality so they can be anything they want to be…
In Marissa, a man who is determined to find evidence of his girlfriend’s infidelity ends up wondering if he should have left well alone.
The Dog God finds a chink in the armour of a man with a megalomaniacal desire to take over the world.
In The Insomniac, a man who leads an obsessively regimented lifestyle on one hour’s sleep a night finds a disruption to his routine doesn’t work for him.
Hole In One sees a dedicated golfer achieving a lifelong ambition.

The Loner ends the collection on a note of hope as two family members try to rebuild their lives after they are torn apart by jealousy.

The collection contains my first novella written two years ago, as well as stories written up to five years ago, so it's been quite a long time coming together. I'll be getting more and more nervous approaching the release date!


Congratulations, Nick!
And really good to hear from you, Ella.
