Can you believe it? After 45 plus books, I actually have a book release on my birthday. Well, okay. Technically, January 30th is my birthday. January 31st is the release date for Last Man Standing. BUT, let’s think about this. It’s my birthday until midnight on 1-30 and when that second hand ticks by midnight, it’s THEN release day. If only a second (or less) separates b’day from r’day doesn’t that make them practically the SAME day? You may have guessed by now that I’ve decided it does. :o)
Okay, now that THAT’s settled, let me tell you a little bit about Last Man Standing. Here’s the blurb from the back cover of the book.
Special operative Joe Green has gone vigilante. His mission, avenge his Black Ops.,Inc. brother’s death during a bloody ambush years ago in Sierra Leone. He refuses to drag the BOI team or his lover, Stephanie Tompkins, into the hunt for the man responsible, so when he finds himself beaten, starving, and alone after being falsely imprisoned for the murder of a Freetown priest, he knows he’s as good as dead.
Joe meant to protect Stephanie when he walked out on their relationship, but he can’t stop her now from executing his escape. Breaking him out of prison is the easy part. After Joe’s explosive theory pans out and his cunning enemy emerges as the front runner for a high level presidential appointment, he and Stephanie must race to derail the traitor’s conspiracy if they are to save their loved ones, the nation and each other.
I’m really excited about this book – a little sad too. This is the 7th and final chapter in the Black Ops, Inc series. I’m going to miss these guys … in fact I knew I was going to miss them so much that told my editor that if she didn’t want me to go into withdrawal, she was going to have to let me write them into my NEW series as secondary characters. Bless her, she told me to go for it. So you will be seeing the guys again – just not in staring roles – in One-Eyed Jacks. I’ll give you more scoop on the new series in another post. For now, here’s a link to the opening scene of Last Man Standing . excerpt
So to celebrate my birthdayreleaseday (ahem), I’m going to give everyone who comments today a chance at winning 2 of my backlist titles. My gift to you!! And for the record, thank you all for being such wonderful supporters of my books! Means everything.
