DEADLY SEDUCTION Release Day!!!!!!

Available NOW!

I’m so excited that today is the book birthday of the 6th book in my bestselling NY State Trooper Series: DEADLY SEDUCTION.

I started this book on this idea: What if the woman you were sleeping with was sent to destroy you?

The only other thing I knew was the hero’s name: Josh Burdett, who showed up for the first time in TO PROTECT HIS OWN. I knew he was an only child and that had been shot in the line of duty, nearly dying while undercover in NYC, but I didn’t know much more than that. I had to ask myself why would someone want to destroy him and why would the heroine sleep with him to do it? Once I answered that question, I had my story.

Delaney Mervis is a bit naive of the world and was easily taken advantage of because of her deep loyalty to what little ‘blood’ family she had left. This book dives deep into the bonds that tie both family and friends together and when to break those bonds. Both Josh and Delaney will have to over come betrayal and harsh truths about themselves and those they loved in order to find each other in the end.

I hope you will enjoy the ride to Josh and Delaney’s happily-ever-after. As also, please feel free to leave an HONEST review on Amazon or Goodreads.

Also, if you’re not on my newsletter, please join here.

Finally, I have a private Facebook Group where I give away swag, free eBooks, early excerpts, character naming contents, and Advanced Reader Copies.

Thanks!

a dash of suspense and a dollop of love…

Who likes to Copyedit? Who likes to key in Copyedits? #amwriting #amediting

No one likes to copy edit, well, except those who are copy editors. Personally, I love story editing, which others call developmental editing. I like doing it for other authors and really enjoy when I get them back, ready to make the story better. But the editing after that? Just shoot me.

My process is simple. I write. I rewrite. I print and read. I rewrite. I send to beta readers. I rewrite. I send to a trusted beta editor. I rewrite. Then I send to a copy editor. I get it back, make changes that I agree with, then I print and go through again, where I find other mistakes. I red pen it, then key in the changes. The lovely thing about digital publishing is I can make those changes right up till the last minute (3 days before release day). So, this is what I did today.

Yep. That’s what final edits look like. And it took two days to key in all those changes. This is for DEADLY SEDUCTION which comes out 23 May 2017.

This is what after edits look like…

And tomorrow I will start on a read and rewrite of the first book in THE OMEGA TEAM: The Lighthouse. The first book in the SARICH BROTHERS series. This book comes out 19 June 2017.

As soon as I finish that one…on to finishing up WHEN A STRANGER CALLS while plotting either the first Adirondack book….OR I had an idea on a fireman series.

What do you think I should write?
