A Good Rant by a Fellow Indie

NEW Cover!

I’m beyond excited about the cover for the next Kate Jones thriller, YUCATAN DEAD (planned release date – 6/23) I think the designer nailed it 🙂

Yucatan Dead

She was a dangerous man’s lover–now she’s his dangerous enemy.

For Kate Jones, being on the run from her former lover—the vicious leader of a Mexican drug cartel—was never going to be easy. But with a new identity, a new lover, and a new life in northern Arizona, she was beginning to believe she’d made it through the worst.

…or turn and fight the evil that pursues her.
