Still feeling a little fluttery over the news of my Harlequin
Intrigue NOIR, BAD GIRL, being named a RITAģ Finalist for the
romance publishing industryís most prestigious award. If any of
you are looking to have a little fun, Romance Writers of America
will be live-streaming the black-tie awards ceremony July 25th
from New York City. Go to
for more details.
In between thinking about shopping for a fancy dress and trying
to shorten the list of everyone I want to thank (just in case I
win a RITA!), Iíve been busy finishing up the final book in my
Precinct: Cold Case trilogy. The team wraps up the tangle of
several interconnected, unsolved murders in KANSAS CITY
CONFESSIONS, out in December of this year. Thank you for all the
kind emails and Facebook messages regarding the launch book for
the Cold Case trilogy, KANSAS CITY COVER-UP. It was a challenge
to redeem hero Gabriel Knight and make the jaded reporter and
recurring Precinct character into a lovable hero. But I think
heroine Olivia Watson was just the woman to tame him and open
his hardened heart to love again. In the meantime, get a load of
the cover for the middle book in the trilogy, KANSAS CITY
SECRETS, featuring former soldier turned K.C. cop Max
Krolilowski. That tough guy is a hottie! Maxís story will be out
July 21 in print, and August 1 in digital format.
Iím also celebrating the digital release of my very first book
for Harlequin Intrigue, ONE GOOD MAN. Readers have been waiting
a long time to get this one. As many of you know, ONE GOOD MAN
is the only one of my books that had never been digitized. But
now the glitches have been worked out and itíll be available
June 15th for your Kindle, NOOK, etc. You can check out my
Taylor Clan page for the updated blurb and cover (although they
stuck with the retro look). Thank you to all the readers who
advocated for so long to get this one digitized to add to their
collection of Taylor Clan books!
On the writing front, Iím jumping right into my next book. As
yet untitled (beyond ďNiallís StoryĒ), it will be the first book
in my Precinct: Bachelors in Blue miniseries, out in 2016.
Iíd also like to run an informal survey with you readers. I post
my newsletter here on the Home Page of my website every month.
Do you like reading it here? Would you be interested in having
the newsletter emailed to your inbox? Do you get too many
e-newsletters? If I go back to sending out newsletters, it
probably would be less frequently, say quarterly or if I have a
new release coming out. The cost remains prohibitive to print
and mail newsletters, so this would be digital only. If you have
an opinion one way or another, please
send me a quick email,
or post a comment on my Julie Miller Author page on Facebook.
