CODE BLUE Is Available For Pre-Order

Although my novel of medical suspense, Code Blue, won't be released until April, 2010, the publisher, Abingdon Press, has arranged for it to be available for pre-order through Cokesbury Books for a special pre-order price of $8.39, representing a 40% discount off the regular cover price. To take advantage of this offer, go to this site and click on the pre-order button. That way you can be among the first to read the story of Dr. Cathy Sewell, who comes back to her small hometown seeking peace and healing, only to encounter conflict and danger. Her colleagues resent her. A prescription she wrote may signal the end of her practice. She's faced with a decision her heart can't make. And eventually she finds that someone in town wants her gone...as in dead.

The second novel in the Prescription For Trouble series is complete, and negotiations are underway for its publication. The working title is Medical Error. In it, Dr. Anna McIntyre's world is collapsing around her. Her patient died because of an identity mix-up. She's about to lose her license because of a flurry of narcotics prescriptions. She thought things couldn't get any worse, but that was before she opened the envelope.

I'm already at work on the third novel in the series. Hope you'll stay tuned for further developments.

Hi Richard! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment today on my blog! I'm so encouraged by hearing how other writers persevere! How exciting to hear about your second novel being negotiated! I'll be rooting for you! Rachelle is wheelin' and dealin' on mine too. I'm waiting to hear back from her once she recouperates from ICRS.
