Bam! Here's Boomerang's book cover reveal.

Even better? You can vote for it in an upcoming novel cover contest now online and later, in person!

A while back, I asked my readers to help me decide on the cover for Boomerang, my debut domestic thriller.

I took a lot of advice and feedback to heart. After I considered your comments, and with some help from my fantastic editor, here's how it turned out. So here's the book cover reveal...

I LOVE IT. The fabulous Chris Kridler, a friend, former Florida Today colleague, talented author, photographer, editor, graphic designer and more, at Sky Diary Productions nailed it. (Note: This is it. I'm not changing it. Or it'll take another decade before it comes out.)

Even better? I am entered into a cover contest for a free, fun reader event, Florida Star Fiction Writers' Evening with the Stars, at 6:30 p.m. April 5, 2024. It's the first time this annual conference is featuring this, and Boomerang is one of 21 books entered. I'm so excited! But don't worry if you don't live in Brevard. You can vote online. So, to my people spread across the country, go ahead and cast your vote for your favorite cover here:

The book cover reveal is done. What the heck is this book about?

How about I just share the back cover?

Okay. That works:

So, yeah, I'm pretty excited. I think this is a story that takes a completely unique angle when it comes to domestic thrillers. I've never read anything along the lines of what I've written. And I can't wait to see what you all think!

While pre-orders are not available for order yet, if you sign up for my mailing list, I'll shoot you an email when it's available for pre-order. (And for those of you who won ARCs, I haven't forgotten about you. You'll get your early copies ASAP. Boomerang's been proofread, so I'm making fixes, formatting it, other stuff, and then I'll be able to offer it for pre-order. And my ARC winners will get their early copies for reading and reviewing.)

Come say hi April 5! And attend a fun, free reader & author event.

Want to tell me what you think? Come on by and see me at this fun, free author-reader event April 5 in Viera, Florida.

Authors and reading fanatics get the chance to mingle and meet some of their favorite novelists, discover new books, snag some free swag and enter into our drawings for some pretty awesome raffle baskets. I'm even putting one together for my own author table, where I'll be selling and signing copies of this story I've been fiddling with for years. So stop by and say hey, grab some free stuff and enter for your chance to read a book lover's basket. If I don't keep it for myself. (JK.)
