New Books, Blog Interview and Award

Lots of news to report! I should be receiving galleys and a cover for my reality show-themed mystery novel Sink or Swim any day now. Although the official trade paperback release date is Jan. 1, it’s possible that it could be available on Amazon in time for Christmas. Stay tuned for updates.

In the meantime, Six Great Books is featuring an interview with me about my road to publication. Kristin Battista-Frazee, who is marketing her amazing book Daughter of Pornography to publishers, conducted the interview. Kristin and I have something in common besides a love of writing – our husbands were roommates at FSU. Go Seminoles! Stop by the interview and check out the Six Great Books blog.

I’m also happy to report that I recently signed my third contract with Mainly Murder Press for the publication of my young adult/adult crossover novel Dark Before Dawn, tentatively scheduled for release in January 2012.

Dawn Christian has been psychic since she was seven years old and has always considered herself an outcast. Even her own mother discourages her talent, so Dawn has kept her abilities quiet and feared a lifetime of loneliness. When she gets involved with a fortuneteller and two teenage girls who share her mysterious perception, Dawn finally belongs to a group. As her intuition strengthens, so does Dawn’s self esteem. However, when she learns her new friends may be tied to two bizarre murders, she has an important choice to make – continue developing the talent that makes her special, or challenge the only people who have ever accepted her.

Finally, thanks to Patricia Stoltey for honoring me with the Irresistible Blog Award. I’d like to pass on this award to some classy bloggers: Kaye George of Travels With Kaye, Lesley Diehl of Another Draught, a blog about beer, mystery and writing, and how the three come together, and Kristi Petersen Schoonover of Keep up the good work, ladies!
