Code of Justice Line Edits

This week, I got a very special gift in the mail. The line edits for my next book! It’s called Code of Justice, and if you’ve read The Kidnapping of Kenzie Thorn or Vanishing Act, you’ll recognize our heroine, Heather Sloan, Portland FBI Agent.

And now a little confession about the way I work. 🙂 When line edits arrive from my editor in New York, I always read the last chapter. I figure that’s the best way to know if she really liked it. And this time, I had some special treats–like how much she’s looking forward to reading the proposal for my next series. (That makes two of us. I guess I better get to writing that.) And there were lots and lots of smiley faces. (My favorite!) But these two, were my favorite notes from the last chapter. I hope you get a kick out of them, too! (Read the typed words at your own risk of spoiling the plot.) 🙂

Good! Nice and evil. :)
Good! Nice and evil. 🙂

Love these notes. They make me smile. 🙂 Hope I’m still smiling at the end of the edits. 🙂 Wish me luck! I’m diving in this weekend!

It’s official! I have a cover!

Okay, guys! I’m super-excited to share the cover of my new book, Vanishing Act! My new Love Inspired Suspense comes out in August, and it now officially has a cover designed by the awesome art department over at Steeple Hill. And when you read the book (and, of course, you all will!), you’ll see how perfectly the image fits the scene in the story. Without further ado … here it is!
