Today is release day and the excitement and nervous anticipation never gets old. I’ve enjoyed writing Promising Piper so much and I’m thrilled to send it out to you now.
Piper is a Marine, out in the field for her first time as a RAPTOR operative. Which means, it’s her first time in the field since her injury which naturally makes her feel a bit – – naked.
Royce is dealing with his own nakedness, in that he’s new to the Las Vegas Sinners football team. He replaced their former quarterback, who was abruptly and without explanation, removed from the team. Fans loved their quarterback and so did teammates, so Royce steps in as a usurper in their eyes and he’s trying to fit in.
Between the two of them, I think they manage their respective roles very well and in the process they found each other. Sigh.
As always, I have a team of people to thank for helping me release Promising Piper into the world.
So, thank you to:
Eric McKinney of 612 Photography for the fantastic photo of JS, (my “Royce”) for the cover.
Stacy Garcia of Graphics by Stacy, for taking my vision of Royce and Eric’s photo and creating a cover that fits RAPTOR.
April Bennett – The Editing Soprano, for her copy edits.
Judy Rosen for polishing those edits and my story to a shine.
Beta Readers – Kim and Yvonne – you ladies are the best.
PJ Fiala’s Road Queens – my reader group who help me name characters and places – thank you all so much for your input, creativity and simply your presence in the Road Queens. You make it the first place I check in the morning and the last place I check each night just to converse and have fun. You all make the Road Queens a happy place to be.
My PA – Julie. I love working with you Julie. You are so valuable to me. Thank you.
Thank you to my readers. You’ve shown me with each release how much you enjoy my books and please know how much I appreciate you. #ReadersRule #BookBuzz
Of course, last but not least by any means – my family, who without you I could not chase my dreams and catch the sometimes elusive little demons. I love you all so very much.
