Each year when early proofs are ready for the new book, copies go to fellow authors. I send some; my editor and agent send some. It’s always with humility and a bit of nervousness that I do this. I know how busy everyone is — looming deadlines, family, research, a towering stack of other galleys — and that often just receiving another book in the mail is an imposition. Also, these copies always go to people I admire, respect, and whose work has inspired me. So, there’s a lot of angst and nail-biting when I’m making my list.
IN THE BLOOD advances to the Semifinals in Goodreads Choice Awards 2014 for Best Book (Mystery & Thriller)
IN THE BLOOD was just nominated for Goodreads Choice Awards 2014 Best Book (Mystery & Thriller.) I am over the moon, mostly because this is a readers choice award. So, thank you!
At midnight, THE WHISPERS, the first in a series of three short stories featuring psychic Eloise Montgomery releases! Next month, THE BURNING GIRL will release, set ten years after The Whispers. And then in January, THE THREE SISTERS will be available, set ten years further still. I didn’t really plan it this way, it’s just how the stories told themselves. I see it as a novella in three parts, a deep dive into a character that has fascinated me for a number of years.
