Why Yes, I'll have a Bourbon with That

I just finished up my third book, picked up by a large Christian publisher.  I've worked 14-18 hours a day for the last two weeks (which includes my regular job and a few vacation days) getting it done so the publisher can have it out by Christmas.

They normally take 8 months to get a new author out.  But with two #1 best-sellers under my belt, and being new to them, they made me a great deal to get it published for the holidays. I've never written fiction so this was a big undertaking, but I hope it is well received.

Storyline: Rachel Raines is orphaned after putting off college to care for ailing parents. Finally, she's off to a major city University and the fun loving, young party girl has better things to do then go to the church of her upbringing, even if a good student. She inherits her only relative's tiny home in a small town in the middle of nowhere a few weeks after graduation. She wants to stay in the city, but that house is the only place she has any memories of her family, her childhood home sold to pay for medical bills, burials, and her continued education.

Armed with a Criminal Justice degree and grades that should have taken her to the FBI, she finds
herself as a rookie patrol officer in a town that has no coffee baristas, no single men her age and the only local restaurant has a life-sized plastic cow on the roof. Well, there was one single man, but he broke their date after she arrested him.

But small town doesn't always mean safe, and she's caught up in an unexpected meth lab bust, and in one moment of violence, her whole life changes, as does her look at her future and her faith.

So dinner tonight was salad, followed by a neat bourbon chaser.

Night all.
