Okay, I’m supposed to say it like that. And I AM excited to see the time getting closer. I love this series. I know, I love all of my books. Most especially after they’re written and right before they’re being released. They’re in that safe zone of done, complete, as good as they can be – and haven’t yet been judged. It’s the zone of the possibilities are endless.
But zoning aside, this trilogy is special. The idea was born while I was in the basement of city building in downtown Phoenix. I was standing outside the evidence room, waiting to speak with someone and looking at the boxes and envelopes and general cluttered messiness of a working evidence storage room. And the what if’s started. What if a box went missing? How long would it be before anyone knew it? Who would know? Why would they know? How could someone take that evidence, anyway? And why would they?
I had a load of questions to ask – and to answer. They pounded on my brain. I have no idea why. But this is how it works for me. The constant pounding on the brain. The barrage of questions that must have answers if I am to rest. In this case, the answers presented themselves in perfect fashion. They just…were.
Harlequin is giving the series great support. They recognize that it is special. It calls out to be read.
And…I’m not sure about the cover. I know they’re reasoning. It’s sound. I believe what they’re telling me. But they aren’t you – the people who read these books. And you aren’t going to be privvy to their reasoning and justifications and motivations. You only get…that cover up there.
So what does it say to you? Is this a book you’d stop to look at? And whether you would or not, why would or why wouldn’t you? I’d really really like honest opinions here. You can’t hurt my feelings on this one – I had nothing to do with this cover. I have no ownership. Just curiosity at this point. What does this cover say to you???
