I love winter. I love the cold, the rain, bundling up in blankets and thick socks. It doesn’t snow where I live, but it does get cold, and that’s okay with me!
There’s a plethora of Christmas books, mostly coming out in October and November, with pretty covers and heartwarming messages. I don’t write pretty and heartwarming, but I had a Christmas book idea … the Kincaid family reunion is threatened by murder. I wanted to call it KILLER CHRISTMAS, but my publisher nixed the idea. They feared it would limit the sales opportunities of the book. And in some ways they’re right — it wasn’t *quite* a Christmas story.
Still, COLD SNAP got a pretty blue cover and honestly, it’s one of my favorite Lucy Kincaid covers. Not because it’s pretty per se, but because the elements all work together. It came out last week and I just learned that COLD SNAP hit #12 on the NYT mass market list, #21 on the e-book list, and #35 on USA Today.
THANK YOU READERS!!!!
