Dying to Run

We finally have a cover for Dying to Run, the sequel to Dead Running; the blog tour is being organized by I Am a Reader Not a Writer; and I'm almost through with the edits. Yeah! The book should be available soon. I'll let you know. Until then, here's the back cover blurb and a short excerpt.

Cassidy Christensen wants to run.
Captured by the traffickers who killed her mother, her only hope is Dr. Tattoo, a man she loves but nobody trusts. When she finally gets a chance to run, someone else she cares about is taken. Running might be her only chance at survival, but she won’t allow another family member to be killed in her place. 

 
Excerpt
A gunshot echoed through my peaceful neighborhood. Not again. Two weeks without someone trying to kill me was apparently too long.
I dropped to my hands and knees before realizing the light was still on. My trembling hand slid up the smooth wall to the switch, my tanned arm contrasting with the white paint. If the shooter looked up he could make me an amputee before hunting me down. Shaky fingers closed around the switch and the room plunged into soothing darkness.
I crawled towards the window. It was October, but the day had been so warm I still had my window open to cool off my second-story room. My ears strained for any abnormal human activity outside, but the chilly air revealed nothing. I peered down into the darkness, our feeble porch light losing the battle against the night.
The shooter didn’t make me wait long for his dramatic appearance. He lumbered towards the front door, steadying himself against the railing. The porch light cast his mammoth shadow against the ground.  
Yikes! There was a giant on my front porch who had either just been shot at or just shot someone else. My fingers dampened the windowsill with sweat. Nana was downstairs snoring without a worry. Could I get to her in time?
The man pulled a key from his pocket, turned it in the lock, and eased through the door. What the crap? Who was this beastly dude and how did he have the key to our house?
I dialed 9-1-1 on my cell phone and searched the floor for some kind of weapon. My hand closed around a twenty-pound dumbbell. Seriously. I was bringing a dumbbell to a gunfight.

  2. This book sounds very good and would love to read it. I also want to offer to promote your book in my community library I run for our rural area. If you send promo items I will place them on the author's table that is wet up in the library. No charge to do this, just my way to help authors.
