It’s my great pleasure to share my huge news with everyone. My novel, tentatively titled Trust Me, I’m a Lawyer, has been acquired by Gemma Halliday Publishing! I can’t decide what’s more exciting to me — the fact that I sold this novel, or that Gemma called my book “an awesome romantic comedy mystery” that reminded her of “a fun, modern twist on Moonlight.” *sighs* *swoons* She gets me.
I’m thrilled to be working with Gemma! I’m a huge fan of her books, and of the other authors she’s working with in her new venture. Details, such as a publication date, are yet to be finalized. The title will likely change, but I know my story is in such great hands.
Here’s a peek at what to expect:
Beacon news reporter Lindsey Fox is on the verge of breaking a huge story of political corruption that will make her career and make her famous journalist parents proud – or she could be thrown in jail and fired. It really could go either way. Her recent streak of bad luck continues when Lindsey finds herself facing a bogus contempt charge — and attorney Ben Gillespie is appointed to get her out of the slammer.
They once had a bad date of epic proportions – stilted conversation, food poisoning, burglary, towed car. Then there was the incident with the pepper spray. Lindsey never believed she’d see the sexy lawyer again.
Ben can totally believe that Lindsey is behind bars. The woman is trouble. Now he has to get his new client out of jail, keep her out of the grasp of a crazed bike messenger and a shady P.I., help her save her job, and convince her to put down the pepper spray and give him another chance.
And now I’m off to celebrate with a wine tasting!
