Hi Everyone and a big welcome to my new subscribers,
My big news for the week is that Critical Condition, the third book in the Undercover Cops series, releases Tuesday!! (probably will hit Walmarts around the 7th)
So much has happened since I last wrote…
Deep Cover won the 2012 Canadian Christian Writing Award for romance.
I had a blast on the Alaskan cruise my husband and I took to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We took a behind-the-scenes tour to research material for a future book. Of course, I made the captain a little nervous when I started asking a lot of question like “What if someone went overboard?”
We suspense writers are always plotting. ~grin~
I freaked my husband out when I found out that the guy sitting beside us on the plane was a pilot and I asked him how I could take down a plane. I explained I was a novelist. Honest.
I arrived home from that trip to a new Love Inspired Suspense book contract. Yay!
I also pitched my idea for a “cruise ship” suspense. My editor has given it tentative approval, but I have to submit a complete proposal once I hand in the other story.
It’s due Nov 1st and I’m getting a tad nervous.
Writing two books at the same time (the LIS and the second book in my series for Revell that debuts next summer) is proving to be more challenging than I’d anticipated, especially when I decided to change the villain halfway through the story.
What was I thinking?!
Hence, the reason for my short, but hopefully sweet, newsletter. ~grin~
However… if you’re feeling creative, you could help me with one thing. I need to give my editor some suspense-sounding title suggestions for the book.
What do you think of Fatal Inheritance?
If you’d like to read a bit about the story and offer other suggestions, stop by my blog post about it: http://www.sandraorchard.blogspot.ca/2012/09/how-to-choose-book-title.html (If the editor picks your title, I’ll thank you in the credits and send you an autographed copy.)
Until next time, happy reading!
P.S. This newsletter’s winner of an autographed copy of one of my books, is Tami B!! Please email me your snail mail address, Tami.
One more note:
If you enjoy Critical Condition, please consider writing a review and/or “liking” the book at your favorite online retailers, or at a book lovers’ site such as Goodreads. Or simply tell a friend about it (or friends if you’re on FB).
Thank you so much to all the book club members who have already read the book and took the time to send me a note or post to my FB page. When I’m pulling out my hair trying to get my newest characters to cooperate, your encouraging notes keep me going.
