Whew! Itís about time. ;) Feels like it has been forever since
Iíve had a Precinct book out (okay, last December). So Iím super
excited that my newest Precinct book, KCPD PROTECTOR, comes out
this month! Print version on July 15th. You e-readers will have
to wait a tad longerÖthe digital version comes out August 1st.
This month is also the
Romance Writers of America
conference in San Antonio. If any of you are attending, I invite
you to come to the workshop Iím presenting with my good buddies,
NYTimes Bestselling Author
B.J. Daniels and USA
TODAY Bestselling Author
Delores Fossen. The
title of our workshop is SCREAM BLOODY MURDER: HOW TO PACE
ROMANTIC SUSPENSE. Weíll be presenting on Saturday, July 26 at
Even if youíre not attending the conference, but live in the San
Antonio area, I invite you to come to the
Readers for Life Literacy
Autographing (one of the biggest book signings
anywhere, with hundreds of authors!) on Wednesday, July 22. Stop
my table for a free bookmark! Iíd be happy to sign a book for
you, too! Profits from the sales of all the books go to Literacy
charities in the area. This booksigning is open to the public.
You do not have to be registered for the conference or at the
hotel to attend. (San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter)
Iíll also be signing free books on Friday of the conference
(July 25 at 9:45-11:45 a.m.) at the Harlequin booksigning. But
you do have to be registered at the conference to attend that
Meanwhile, Iím busy at work writing the next Precinct
miniseries, a trilogy scheduled for 2015 called The Precinct:
Cold Case. Iíll do some name dropping of familiar characters you
might see: Gabriel Knight, Katie Rinaldi, Trent Dixon Ö plus
some new characters I think youíre going to love. I canít wait
to introduce you to Max Krolikowski. This cigar chomping, good
olí boy, shoot-from-the-hip tough guy isnít your typical
romantic suspense hero. But Iím loving his story and character.
Anybody familiar with actor Michael Cudlitz? He plays Abe on THE
WALKING DEAD and was Sgt. Randleman in BAND OF BROTHERS. Thatís
who Iím basing Detective Krolikowski on.
Thanks to everyone who joined me for the June free online read
think THE BRIDESMAIDíS BODYGUARD was a hit! And we had a fun
discussion throughout the month, too. For readers who might have
missed the free novella, itís still available at the site. You
may have to check the online read archives, but itís there for
you to read or read again!
Be sure you check out my upcoming blog dates on the
Contests & Fun Page.
Iíll be giving away books at those appearances.
