Increasing Paranoia, Shopping, Cold Pursuit and a $25 GC!
Do you ever freak out? I used to think I was a really grounded and possibly normal individual, and then I had kids. Slowly over the years I have discovered that I've become more and more of a fear-monster. My bravery and spirit-for-adventure have been eroded and corroded to dust. I can't even climb a ladder or watch a horror movie any more. Maybe it isn't having kids. Maybe it's being a writer with our insane imaginations. For example, last time I took the kids to the mall I was kicking myself for not having a zombie apocalypse meeting spot. We had our usual meeting spot at our pre-arranged time and location, but not one for an unexpected zombie invasion. I actually worried about this. Should we head for the car or take advantage of possible looting opportunities at Pier 1? Next time I'll be prepared.
Some days I hate to be me. If I'm this crazy at forty-six, ninety is going to be a blast :) What about you--are you getting braver or more of a wuss as time goes on?
It was my writerly imagination that spawned the premise for my next release (Monday!!!). Another nightmare scenario in the mall--crikey, maybe I just hate shopping. Here's the blurb. (Check out the end of this post for a giveaway) I hope you enjoy!
Single mom Vivi Vincent is thrust into her worst nightmare when she’s trapped inside a mall during a terror attack along with her eight-year-old son. With the help of Jed Brennan, an FBI special agent on enforced leave, Vivi and her son survive the assault. But the danger is far from over.
Vivi’s son may have witnessed critical details of the terrorists’ future plans and is targeted for death, but he’s mute, and he’s traumatized. Still someone launches a strike against the FBI’s safe house, and Jed fears the bad guys have an inside man. No longer knowing who to trust, he hides mother and son in a log cabin deep in the heart of the Wisconsin Northwoods. There Jed and Vivi try to figure out how to unlock the information inside her son’s head. What they don’t bargain for is the red-hot attraction that flares between them, or the extent of the sinister plot that threatens to rip apart not only any chance of happiness they might have together, but also the very fabric of American society.
