Safeguard Novels to release in Print!

Hidden Impact print cover

Great news! One of the most frequent requests I receive from readers is for the Safeguard Novels to release in print. I am very happy to announce that Harlequin’s Direct to Customer (DTC) program, Reader Service, has selected HIDDEN IMPACT and DEADLY TESTIMONY for their upcoming Suspense shipments, in January 2018 and February 2018, respectively! Reader Service sends a monthly shipment of 3-4 books to readers who have signed up or subscribed for the service.

What does this mean?

What if I’m not subscribed to Reader Service, can i still get the print books?

Yes! Print editions will be available on some third-party dot-com retailers, including Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.  Readers will be able to order and receive those print copies they’ve been requesting. I’ll be updating the pages for both HIDDEN IMPACT and DEADLY TESTIMONY as soon as the pre-order links are available.

(Print release will not be in brick & mortar bookstores at this time. Readers will need to order online to have the print book shipped to them. Seems odd? the publishing industry is complicated and there are so many nuances to releases!)

But what about CONTRACTED DEFENSE?

Won’t that be available in print too? We need the complete series!

It is ultimately up to the folks at Harlequin. I would be absolutely delighted to see CONTRACTED DEFENSE also chosen. Choices have not yet been finalized beyond February 2018 but the best support readers can provide is pre-ordering HIDDEN IMPACT and DEADLY TESTIMONY in print to let Harlequin know the series is in demand. You can also pre-order CONTRACTED DEFENSE in digital format. It releases this September in ebook!

2016 Plans, Appearances, and Whoa!

Happy New Year! This is going to be a big year for me as Piper J. Drake so I figured it’d be good to do a quick preview of this years plans, appearances, and All.The.Things.

Plans for 2016 Elevator ClingComing soon…

The first of the True Heroes series, Extreme Honor, releases on January 26 in bookstores everywhere! This title is a big milestone for me: my first print book in traditional bookstores.

Two more books are scheduled to release in 2016 for the True Heroes series, so if you enjoy Extreme Honor (and I very much hope you do!) then watch for Ultimate Courage in July and Absolute Trust in December.

For those of you who enjoyed Hidden Impact, released last year, the Safeguard series also continues with Deadly Testimony in May and Contracted Defense in November.

That’s 5 books releasing this year.

Yup. o.o

Appearances…

No book tours scheduled yet, but I will be at RT Booklover’s Convention in Vegas and the Barbara Vey Reader Appreciation Luncheon in Wisconsin this spring. I’ll be updating my Events as the year goes on as well.

Goals…

Both the True Heroes and Safeguard series were originally contracted for 3 books each. I haven’t heard yet whether either of these will continue with more in the series but I do have outlines ready in case there’s a request to continue them.

In the meantime, I’m preparing a proposal for a new romantic suspense series to be ready for my agent in Q1. It is different and edgy with quirky characters and dark heroes. I’m very much hoping to share more in the near future.

In 2016, I also have personal goals to improve my health and get more fit. These seem fairly mundane, but they’re incredibly important to the success of my plans for the year. I’ll be continuing to travel for the day job and I need to keep up my stamina as I dive into plans to write even more stories.

Hidden Impact – Release Day!

CARINA_1115_9781459290211_HiddenImpactYay! It’s release day for Hidden Impact, my debut romantic suspense. I’m so excited to see this book out in the world. Here’s hoping you all enjoy it!
