It’s been difficult for me to sit on this announcement until the contract was signed and I was given the greenlight to share with everyone. I’m still in shock–believe me it takes quite a bit to shock me. As a writer, we dream of such a wonderful opportunity to have a publisher swoop in and offer a fantastic deal. It’s been a blur and there are several people who made this happen for me: Commissioning Editor Abigail Fenton and Publicity and Social Media Manager Kim Nash. I don’t even know where to begin, but you can read my press release from Bookouture.
Here’s the short version. I was initially contacted, I pitched a new detective crime series, and then the contract was offered for a 3-book deal. I’ve hit the ground running and that’s why you haven’t heard from the me a while. I’ve been organizing my schedule and figuring out my life for the next year or so. But don’t worry! I will be giving you updates along the way.
The first book from Bookouture will publish in May 2019, with book two following in September 2019 and book three in January 2020. I will be posting updates as the process progresses, with the tile, synopsis, and the cover reveal. I’m extremely excited about this series. I’ve had several series ideas in addition to the ones I already have, but this one was special and Bookouture thought so too.
Now, I wanted to let everyone know who are fans of the Emily Stone Thrillers and the Chip Palmer Mystery Series , I did not abandoned them. I will also be updating you on some surprises from my favorite vigilante detective and criminalist soon.
To make a long story short, nothing has really changed except for the fact that there will be a new crime series to hit the bookstores May 2019.
Thank you to all my loyal readers, reviewers and fans. Your support and readership has made all of the incredible opportunities come to life for me. There’s more to come.
