Location, location, location. It’s not just important in real estate.
Click here to see my guest column for the Happy Ever After blog at USA Today about the importance of location in a book.
My holiday season has already started out with a bang. I learned that
Secure Location, my April, 2013 Harlequin Intrigue is a nominee for a
Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award. That was unexpected and lovely news. Also,
Romantic Times reviewed
Dead by Wednesday, available in print on Dec. 17, 2013 and said, “Long delves into the problems of gang violence, bullying, and teenage pregnancy as she builds a scary story about a serial killer into a compelling tale of redemption.”
I’ll be signing copies of
Dead by Wednesday at Barnes & Noble at CherryVale Mall in Rockford, Illinois on Friday, Dec. 20, 2013 from 7 pm – 8:30 pm. Please stop by if you’re in the area.
I love the back cover copy (even though I didn’t write it!), so I’m sharing it here:
“With no leads, no witnesses and four teenage victims, it’s a race against the clock for Detective Robert Hanson to catch a vicious serial killer. But he gets thrown slightly off course when Carmen Jiminez asks for his help. Fiercely independent, the pretty pregnancy counselor is the only woman who has ever tempted Robert to give up his freewheeling bachelor life. Yet protecting Carmen from mysterious “accidents” and vengeful clients is just as difficult as winning her trust. And the only way he can keep her and her brother safe is to conceal a wrenching secret—one an obsessed killer can’t wait to use. Now Robert’s newfound family is right in harm’s way, and time is almost up…”
For those of you who have read
For the Baby’s Sake, you’ve already met Robert and Carmen. They were such wonderful secondary characters that they deserved their own book.
As always, I love to

great joy, many friends,
loving family, and
wonderful food! As I
reflect upon 2013, I am
grateful for the many
readers who have
contacted me this year
and have expressed their
appreciation for the
books. You really have
no idea how much that
means to me.
