It’s alive!!

Twelve Seconds, that is. Space Coast Mystery #1, featuring space reporter Justin Harris and Air Force Special Agent Greg Marcotte, is available here. It’s only on Kindle right now, as I’m testing out the efficacy of Kindle Unlimited, but eventually it’ll be available through Smashwords and the other outlets, too.

Enjoy! If you’ve already read the story in the anthology and are waiting for book 2, it’ll be out next spring. (I must tell you, though, this version has added content in the form of backstory for all of the characters.)

Cover reveal: Twelve Seconds!



Coming soon! As in the next few days! This is the cover for Twelve Seconds, my novella from the Footsteps in the Dark anthology. If you didn’t buy the anthology, here’s your chance to read the first of a new series, the Space Coast Mysteries. If you did buy the anthology, then you’ll just have to wait for book two. 😀

Thanks to Dianne at Lyrical Lines Proofreading and Book Covers for this awesome cover!

This version of the story is a couple thousand words longer. I added some scenes that will carry forward in the rest of the series but weren’t necessary for the standalone version.

The book will be on Kindle Unlimited at first. I’m experimenting with that. I’ve never used it for the Jamie Brodie books, and I’ve heard mixed reviews from other writers.

Speaking of Jamie Brodie, the next book (Deserted to Death, JBM #19) will be out mid-October.
