In the mean time - catch up! I have a two new books out since last I posted. God, I'm so pathetic at this.
StripTease is a straight suspense romance. An elite unit of FBI agents go undercover as strippers to catch a crooked senator. So much fun to write! When we finished, we turned it over to an FBI unit for a test drive. Yeah, real special agents. How cool is that? Their opinion? They loved it. So much so that one of them allowed us to quote him on the book cover saying we couldn't have gotten any closer to reality unless we wrote from a case file. His boss has declared I'm either psychic or I've hack his files. LOL - should any of you be reading this - love you, Rick, Gary, Nicole, Mel, Steve, and all! And Terry and I are now a tad frightened because we honestly thought we were writing pure fantasy. Oh the things those boys and girls do to keep us safe!
Solitude & Sea Glass is a contemporary gay romance. An Oscar-winning actor retreats to an island off the coast of Maine when a crazed fan slashes his face. Thinking his now-destroyed beauty is all he has to offer anyone, it's up to his new summer intern to convince him he has more to offer than looks alone. It's already gotten 2 great reviews. This was fun too since it let me find out more about Terry's home state of Maine. We had help on this one from an Oscar-winning hair dresser and a native of Maine.
Have I mentioned I have the most interesting friends?
Otherwise - I'm getting ready to head to New Orleans in a week and a half. I'm going down for EPICon. I have those two finalist nominations, I'm presenting the award for Contemporary Romance, and I'm doing some author pitches for Red Rose. Hey, any excuse to get me to New Orleans, 'kay?
I'm working on... three books currently. One is done and shipped off to the FBI for review. It's about the outcome of a charity bachelor auction. I've just started one for one my favorite active special agent called "Guardian." He gets to star as a different sort of guardian angel. Man, does he look good with big black wings. And we've started the sequel to The Wolfe Proxy. We've set it in Bay Mignon, AL to finish out the "Southern Beaus" set.
I just finished my 26th cover for Red Rose and am really enjoying doing the cover art. Just tons of fun. Check the website for all the info on the books and such. Some of the covers are up there, too. T D McKinney.com
