"Red Tide" - A little backstory.

Monday, May 7, 2012
My latest release, "Red Tide," is officially available today. I love this book because it was the manuscript I was actively working on when I first met Hubby (aka "The World's Greatest Husband(TM)). We were both members of the Novels-L critique list through the Internet Writing Workshop, and he was one of the people critiquing my manuscript.

Flash forward to now, going on fifteen years later... :)

"Red Tide" is the first of a series of books with Mitch and Ed, the lead characters. Sami and Matt, from "Out of the Darkness," will also appear from time to time (as they do in "Red Tide.") I love writing mystery and suspense, as well as the paranormal, and no I probably shouldn't have sat on this book as long as I did, but I'm glad Siren accepted it and allowed it to finally see the light of day. It was a "labor of love" in more ways than one. :)

But also, keep an eye out for later in the year, as I put out the first of my spin-off series, the Coffeeshop Coven books, which will be a menage series set around the Many Blessings shop in "Out of the Darkness."

And yes, the town of Aripeka, where I set "Red Tide" (and my Macy Largo book, "Sunset Hearts") really does exist. I lived there for a while, and it's a place full of history and atmosphere.

    Ooh, thanks for the backstory. I've downloaded the book and it's next to be read when I finish the western I'm currently reading. This is what I love about my Kindle (and erotic novels!) I'm reading genres that I would never have considered in the past.
    Hugs xx
    p.s. Love the story of how you and hubby got together.

    Yea! Another story set in my beloved hometown of Aripeka. My favorite place in the world. A lot of that history deals with my family.

  1. @SusieJ - Thanks! :) I love our Kindle and Nook, too. Too many books, not enough time. LOL

    @sarenan - LOL I'm glad you said something, because I couldn't remember who it was who was from Aripeka. I lived there during the No-Name storm of '93.

    OMG-I live in the Orlando area and after the no name storm I remember coming over every weekend to try and help various family members. We drove over for months trying to get the mold off of the walls and trying to save family treasures. I cried so much the first time I saw the destruction. My grandfather built the store and my uncle still owns it and I remember everything on the floor and all of the shelve tipped over.
