Have you ever seen one of those Looney Tunes characters just runs around screaming?  That feels like me today.  I mean, I’m trying to keep it contained, but… inside I look like this.

My latest novel, The Second Shot, is now available to the public and that means that people will (hopefully) buy it and then (ack!) read it.  Today is the day that we see if all of my writing, marketing, and general daydreaming has paid off. I’ll be celebrating the release with on-line “take-over” parties and giveaways.

A drunken mistake in college cost US Marshal Maxwell Ames the affection of Dominique Deveraux and six years later, he’s determined to fix the slip-up. But there’s just one tiny problem—someone wants the Deveraux family dead. Dominique Deveraux never expected Max to reappear in her life, let alone apologize, but as Dominique investigates the mysterious attacks on her wealthy family Max quickly becomes far more than her one time college classmate. Now, Max and Dominique must dodge mercenaries and bullets as they try to make sure that they’re the only ones who get a second shot.
