Thanks for finding me and stopping by on the RomVets blog hop celebrating Veterans Day!
Although it’s a well-known holiday, many Americans get it mixed up with Memorial Day. To be honest, it can be a little confusing. Memorial Day is a time to remember those who gave their lives for our country or suffered wounds from battle. Veterans Day honors all those who have served the country in war or peace—dead or alive.
A little bit about me, I’m a veteran and served fifteen years in the military as an Air Force Intelligence Officer. Today, I write romantic thrillers. If a sexy Jason Bourne type of story with strong, yet wounded, characters who have to fight for their lives as well as their happily-ever-after piques your interest, then you’ll love my upcoming Final Hour series.
The first book, EVERY LAST BREATH, will be published by Sourcebooks on April 30, 2019. I’ve seen the cover (very exciting with a thriller feel) and I’m dying to show the world, but you’ll have to wait until the cover reveal my publisher has in the works.
I’m also giving away a $10 gift card. All you have to do to be eligible to win is read the official blurb for EVERY LAST BREATH below and tell me what you think in the comments.
EVERY LAST BREATH (Book 1)
2 covert operatives
1 chance to get it right
Maddox Kinkade is an expert at managing the impossible. Tasked with neutralizing a lethal bioweapon, she turns to the one person capable of helping her stop the threat of pandemic in time: the love of her life, back from the dead and mad as hell at her supposed betrayal. Recruiting Cole to save millions of lives may be harder than resisting the attraction still burning between them, but Maddox will do whatever it takes…even if it destroys her.
When Maddox crashes back into Cole Matthews’ life, he wants to fight back. He wants to hate her. But the crisis is too strong to ignore, and soon the two former lovers find themselves working side-by-side in a breakneck race to stop a world-class killer with a secret that could end everything.
The clock is ticking…
Thank you to all veterans for their sacrifices!

***FUN CHANCE TO NAME A CHARACTER***
If you’d like to help me name a pivotal character in my upcoming Gray Box Series from Sourcebooks, I’m sending out the details in my first newsletter on Friday. Everyone who gets in on the fun will be entered to win a $5 Amazon gift card as a thank you.
Todd Stocke, the Vice President & Editorial Director of Sourcebooks was kind enough to take a picture of the deal and tweet it!
Sourcebooks’ Mary Altman acquired world rights (excluding audio) to a new romantic thriller series by Juno Rushdan. The three-book deal was negotiated by Sara Megibow of KT Literary. According to Megibow, the series centers on Maddox Kinkade, a “fixer for a clandestine government agency, known as the Gray Box, tasked with preventing the sale of a deadly bioweapon.” Kinkade’s partner in the mission turns out to be a former lover who she’d assumed was dead—“by her own hand.” Sourcebooks plans to publish the first title in the series, A Long Way to Fall, in summer 2018; both sequels will follow later in 2018.
Sold!!! My three-book deal for a romantic thriller series with Sourcebooks was announced in Publisher’s weekly. My rock star agent, Sara Megibow of KT Literary, is the ultimate champion any author would be fortunate to have in their corner. I can’t wait to work with my editor, Mary Altman, whose enthusiasm for the series blew me away.
The first book in the series is called A LONG WAY TO FALL. The title may be changed later, but Mary gave the thumbs up to use it in the announcement.
So, what comes next?
Deadlines. Lots of deadlines to submit each book of the series, revise, resubmit, then review the proof copy.
I’ll keep you in the loop on the process and share exciting details along the way.
Thank you to Sara and Mary for turning my dream of the Gray Box Series into a reality to share with readers!
