It’s Tuesday, which means we’re touring Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. I plan on blogging about our trip next week! I would have loved to have done a journal as we went, but I’m not bringing my laptop with me.
Max Revere and Lucy Kincaid are distinctly different characters. I love it, because I don’t want to get bored with either one, but sometimes going from Max to Lucy and back again can be a challenge. Right now, I’m writing a novella for Hit and Run, book two of the Moreno and Hart Mystery Series I’m co-writing with Laura Griffin. I love being able to write something completely different when I put one book aside before I start the next book. Why? It cleans the palette, so to speak. I can put Max out of my head before I start in on the next Lucy book.
Speaking of something different and totally cool, my friend Andrew Gross has a new thriller out this week! Everything to Lose has an amazing cover (I love all of Andy’s covers!) and some fantastic early reviews. What I love about Andy’s books is that he generally takes ordinary people and puts them in extraordinary situations … making for very real, very heart-pounding thrillers. Last year, I gave my mom one of Andy’s books and she asked for more — and if both me and my mom likes a book, you know it’s good!
BOOKLIST gave Everything to Lose a STARRED REVIEW and said:
“Gross skillfully keeps his plot moving forward through scenes of emotional richness, then jittery suspense. The characters are pushed by choices they make, not just the demands of the plot.”
