Time for another update. If you are a fan of the Jessie Black Legal Thriller series, there is a lot to be excited about right now! Here are some highlights.
The First Three Jessie Books in Audio
Jessie Black is coming to audiobooks! Audiobook publisher Tantor Media is bringing the first three Jessie books out in audio format this year. This is super-exciting to me, since I am a huge fan of audiobooks.
As I’ve mentioned on my blog, I am also a big fan of the narrator, Xe Sands, whose performance brings a wonderful new dimension to the books. Here is the audiobook release schedule:
Burnout: May 23
Informant: June 20
Deadly Evidence: July 25
Listen to an audio sample of Xe reading the beginning of the first chapter of Burnout here:
Fatal Defense in Paperback
The newest Jessie book, Fatal Defense, launched as a Kindle ebook on April 7. It’s done pretty well, sticking in the top hundred best-selling legal thrillers on the Kindle store and getting positive reviews from readers.
Now, a paperback version is available as well. I read most books digitally these days, but it still gives me a thrill to hold these in my hand. The book looks great on a shelf and makes a nice gift for a book lover (or if you want to introduce a friend to the series). You can find the paperback here.
I published my first book, Hardcore, on May 14, 2013, so this past Sunday marked my four-year publishing anniversary. It’s hard to believe it’s been so long—I still feel very new at this! But it has been an amazing four years. I am extremely grateful to you and everyone who has read my books. Because of you, I have been able to pursue my lifelong dream. Thank you!
If you’re not familiar with Hardcore, it’s a little different from my other books. The book is an “amateur sleuth” murder mystery rather than a legal thriller, and it’s a standalone book, not a series. (I would be open to writing a sequel if there is demand for one.) It deals with subject matter that hasn’t been explored in many mysteries or thrillers (the adult entertainment industry). I’m proud of the book and think it’s a good read. If you’ve read all the Jessie books and are looking for something else from me featuring a crime-solving heroine, consider checking it out. You can find Hardcore here.
More Jessie coming soon
Don’t think I’m sitting back and kicking my feet up. I’m hard at work on the next Jessie Black story. I’m still in the rough draft stage, and a lot can change, but so far, the story is coming along well. I’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, enjoy the spring weather. Happy reading!
