I have some fab news to share, as well. I just typed THE END on the next Leine Basso thriller, ABSOLUTION. Take a gander at the new cover:

cover for Absolution: A Leine Basso ThrillerTo say I’m excited to get this book out in the world is an understatement. I won’t bore you with the details, but this past summer and fall were chock full of events/stuff that tore me away from getting down the words. I’m grateful I managed to find enough chunks of time to continue the epic adventures of our favorite former assassin (she’s way, way, WAY too much fun to write…) 

There’s only one sure way to stop a terrorist…

Leine Basso has severed ties with everyone she loves to keep them safe while she hunts for the ruthless terrorist, Salome. There are rumblings that the French-born assassin is planning another attack, and Leine’s determined to stop her before it’s too late.

Leine must follow her instincts despite a cunning and merciless enemy determined to lure her down a deadly path. Can Leine thwart her plans, or will Salome’s own twisted vengeance mean the end for Leine and everyone she loves?

From London to Edinburgh to the City of Angels, Salome’s making a comeback—and that comeback includes killing Leine.”

The novel drops January 26 (unless something ELSE comes up :-p). The book is available for pre-order on Apple Books and Barnes & Noble. Amazon and KOBO will follow soon. 

I hope everyone in the US has a fabulous Thanksgiving, and all my international friends have a spectacular week ahead. It’s hard to believe we’re coming up on the holidays already. I’m seriously afraid the next morning I wake up I’ll be 95 years old, looking back on my life and wondering just where the hell the time went…

More about The Last Deception

cover for the last deceptionLies. Deception. A nation on the brink of war…

That’s the first line of the description for my latest Leine Basso thriller, THE LAST DECEPTION. This one’s a bit of a departure for Leine, since it primarily deals with espionage and terrorism. I’ve been a huge fan of spy thrillers for as long as I can remember and thought it would be fun to write what I loved to read.

Turns out, it was much more difficult than I thought.

My first draft was all right according to early readers, but it felt like there was something missing. I sent it off to my weapons and operations guy, but he was out of pocket and wouldn’t be able to take a look for a couple of weeks. So I took a chance and sent it to a writer friend who has experience with security operations and arms dealers and such, and asked him to take a look to see if he could identify what was off.

Well, I asked for it 🙂

One month and several pages of detailed, no-holds-barred notes later, and The Last Deception finally felt like the novel I’d been longing to write. One more round of revisions (2 pages of notes this time, and my ops guy got back to me with some great ideas), and I sent it off to my amazing editor, Laurie. The result is a book that I’m very excited to share with you all. Yes, it took 3 months longer than my usual 6-month turnaround, but I’m indie–I have no hard deadlines. The book gets published when the book is ready.

It’s currently available for pre-order at all retailers and you’ll save 50% if you get it before launch day (20 September). Click here for more information.

Here’s a short video I created to go with the novel. Let me know what you think in the comments:

I’d love it if you’d let all your thriller-loving friends know about the book, and especially about the pre-order sale. Advance reader reviews have been fantastic, to say the least, so you can rest assured it’s readable 🙂

That’s it for now. I’ll post sometime next week with an excerpt, so come on back.

Have a thrilling weekend!
