Thursday brings us answers to another question. We asked the Suspense Sisters: What’s ahead for 2016? What books can our readers look forward to? Read our responses, and leave a question in our comments section. We may pick your question to answer in an upcoming column. You could win books or Amazon gift cards! Today, someone will win a copy of Dr. Richard Mabry’s book, MIRACLE DRUG! (Be sure to leave your contact information. You can’t win if we can’t find you!)
I'll have a new Romantic Suspense releasing the end of this month, called Ripped in Red (Book 1 in The Pretty Must Dieseries), then in February, I'll have the first in a new cozy series, Beware the Orchids releasing. I plan to put out eight 50,000 word books this year and a couple of novellas. It will be busy for sure!
This year, my first full-length novel, Dust Devil, will release. I'll also complete my Grime Fighter series with Grime Spree (laterthis month) and a fourth and final episode in early June. If things work out the way I plan, or close to that, I'll also begin a brand new novella series - D-Street Mysteries. I can't wait to dig into that project as I'm finishing up my current stories!
My next novel, Medical Judgment, will be released by Abingdon Press in May. I’m doing the final edits on my next novel, Cardiac Event, but details on its publication (the whoand when) aren’t yet available. Meanwhile, my posts at Suspense Sisters will be sort of like the plays run by the Dallas Cowboys—absolutely unpredictable and sometimes the cause for head-scratching.
This year sees the release of the fourth Miss Prentice Cozy mystery, Incomplete Sentence, on February 1. (This mysterytiptoes along the line between "cozy" and "thriller!") I'm also working on number five, The Village Idiom, for next year. Stay tuned!
What’s ahead in 2016 for Writer Mentink? Plenty! I’ve got the second book in the Pacific Coast Investigations series comingand a K-9 continuity series with some other amazing Love Inspired authors. I’m super excited to report that in April my first book with Harvest House comes out. It’s a lighthearted, dog themed series the first of which is entitled Sit, Stay, Love.
I’ll have a least two Amish cozy mysteries this year with Guideposts. And in November, the beginning of a brand newseries! The first book, FATAL FROST, is the first book in my U.S. Marshals series. I’m very excited about it.
The Suspense Sisters will have lots of exciting things this year. Interviews, contests, and great articles.
The rest of the year will be spent watching over Richard Mabry. He’s a handful. Sigh.
