What do smugglers, assassins and a Mossad spy have in common?

Not much of a blog this month, I’m afraid, as I’ve been busy with my publisher doing the final proof reads for my thriller Eavesdrop. The final cover art has arrived and is quite stunning, which is exciting. I awoke Thursday morning to the news that the Kindle version was available on Amazon, which meant I then had to busy myself creating an Author profile.  At least I had my bio and photos and stuff already prepared.

The timing was great, though.  Purely coincidentally, my employer was about to publish their quarterly magazine, and I managed to get them to do a page spread about how I came to write Eavesdrop.  They published it the day after the Kindle version hit Amazon.  That’s the sort of timing you might call “jammy”. But they always say that doing well at writing requires a good dose of luck.

Here’s hoping for some more in the coming weeks as we get ready for the paperback.  Just had the final galleys through for approval.  Better not keep her waiting!
