I’m Launching My Debut Novel

to hunt a sub

This month, I may not be as accessible as usual. After five years, two hundred rewrites, about thirty sets of eyes to offer suggestions, three exorcist-like breakdowns, and six gallons of virtual ice cream to help me recover, I’m launching my debut thriller, To Hunt a Sub:

An unlikely team is America’s only chance

A brilliant Ph.D. candidate, a cynical ex-SEAL, and a quirky experimental robot team up against terrorists intent on stealing America’s most powerful nuclear weapon, the Trident submarine. By all measures, they are an unlikely trio–one believes in brawn, another brains, and the third is all geek. What no one realizes is this trio has a secret weapon: the wisdom of a formidable female who died two million years ago.

Here’s what’s coming up:

  • My Kindle Scout campaign is running right now. If enough people recommend me, I’ll get a publishing contract. Feel free to click the link and push ‘Recommend’
  • Just in case the first option doesn’t work, my blogging friends are all set to help market To Hunt a Sub with Cover Reveals, Launch Day Announcements, and a Blog Hop starting mid-July and extending through the end of August.
  • To prepare for the launch, I need to upload the ebook to Kindle and anywhere else I want to market it, set up a landing page for promotions, and whatever else I can’t think of right now.

So, this is my long way of saying, if you don’t hear from me as much as usual, please understand. And feel free to join the festivities or help me promote my book (I’ll return the favor when you’re ready). Just add a comment at the bottom.

Talk soon!

  4. Tried to recommend but can’t remember my Amazon password and I’ve got no patience this time at night!!! Like none. Will try again tomorrow. Sounds like there is so much work to do even after finishing a book! Quite daunting.

  5. So excited for you, Jacqui. Wishing you all the very best.
