Hey, I need your help! The next book in my Damaged Heroes series needs a title and I’m opening it up to readers for some brainstorming help. If I use your creation I’ll A) thank you in the acknowledgements and B) send you a free copy when it releases next year!
I’m looking to return to the style of the first two books: Locked, Loaded and Lying and Tall, Dark and Damaged. Meaning a common phrase with a twist at the end. Something along with the lines of: the strong, silent type. Or means, motive and… you see?
About the character: Jace Quinn is an ex-SEAL turned FBI agent-associate who is desperate for a special agent title. His arrogance hides raw vulnerability, his competitiveness hides epic insecurities and his worldview of being superior to women hides a deep down belief of exactly the opposite. Have fun with this and email me with your brainstorming ideas soon!
As I reach my 5th anniversary of being a published author I’d like to thank you by reducing the digital version of Tall, Dark and Damaged to FREE until May 16th!
Please share this news with anyone you think would love a contemporary Gothic mystery. A black sheep son returns home to make amends, but becomes entrenched in bitter familial rivalry, a hostage takeover attempt and someone willing to kill to keep a family secret buried.
If you enjoyed Victoria Holt novels about a brooding hero in a creepy mansion, family skeletons and a heroine in the wrong place at the wrong time, this is right up your alley. Enjoy!
I’ll touch base in a few days from the 2019 Barbara Vey Reader Appreciation Event in Milwaukee, WI. Off to pack!
You can buy the paperback version of A Savage Trick now!! Yes, today- 9 days early! Why? Because even though the official release date for this next book in my Damaged Heroes series is April 23rd, I needed paperback copies for the upcoming Barbara Vey Reader Appreciation Event. And the only way to get my author copies was to make paperbacks available for you as well!
I’m keeping the news on the down-low to avoid consumer confusion, since all my promotion lists April 23rd, which is when the digital copy releases. But feel free to buy your paperback copy now, yay! I’m thrilled about this story and have already received emails from early readers gushing about the exciting plot. I know you’ll love it too!
Here it is! A Savage Trick is available Tuesday, April 23rd, and I’ve set up a pre-order link on Amazon so you can reserve your copy. This is the third book in the Damaged Heroes Series. What’s it about? Here’s the back cover blurb or grab a cup of coffee and enjoy these first three chapters!
I don’t mind confessing, this story took a lot out of me. One of the first craft lessons writers learn is to figuratively drag their protagonist (hero) through the mud. As soon as he stands back up we’re to run him over with a bus. In this particular story, after poor Trick Quinn manages to once again stagger to his feet I lobbed a grenade. He works really hard for his Happily Ever After, and I know this novel will keep you on the edge of your seat!

I’ve been immersed in yoga and meditation lately, and am attending a Deepak Chopra retreat–wheee! I think this will be a top highlight of my year.
What about you? Let me know what you’re doing in 2019!
