On April Fools Day, I revealed the cover of the fourth and final book in the series, A Perfect Hatred. Of course, I had a little fun with it. I posted a cover of a bearded, shirtless man with a man-bun and a kitten on his shoulder and raved about how perfect I thought the cover was. Needless to say, the reaction was mixed. A few minutes later, I posted the real cover and had a few laughs.
When I purchased this cover graphic two years ago, it was hard to keep it under wraps for two years. This was so perfect for the subject matter, and I hope you like it as much as I do. By the way, Collateral Damage is available for preorder. Click on the image above to do so.
And What is a Virtual Book Launch Anyway?
Recent circumstances eliminated my dilemma over which book store in my town to host the launch of Collateral Damage. With everyone in Virginia on lockdown until June 10, my only option is a virtual launch online.
The launch will still take place on April 19, 2020, but will be held on my Facebook Group Page, “Readers Who Love Real Spies with Real Lives.” However, that’s a private group–to keep scammers and spammers out–so if you don’t already belong to the group, you’ll have to join. That’s no big deal. Click on join, answer a couple of questions, and the group admin (that’s me) will approve. (You can always leave after the book launch event, but try it out for a few weeks at least.)
Throughout the day on April 19, I’ll schedule posts with trivia (answers enter you to win free eBooks), go live with some background on A Perfect Hatred, and answer questions from readers. There’ll be lots of cool prizes (gift cards, the aforementioned free eBooks, and a grand prize of something special from the KGB Museum’s gift shop in New York) and fun things to do. And I’ll do my best to alleviate some of that stuck-at-home ennui many of us have been suffering with.
I hope to see everyone “there.”

I almost forgot to mention, when you join the Facebook group, you’ll get a free copy of a “top secret” dossier on one of my main protagonists, Maitland “Mai” Fisher. So, see, you win a prize right off the bat!
Yep, that was yesterday. I got all involved with an editing project for a client and totally forgot to post this blog post on the home page. Oy!
I hope you enjoy this behind-the-scenes look at my new book, A Change for the Better.
I’m the featured author this week on the book blog, South Branch Scribbler. It’s an in-depth interview, and many thanks to Allan Hudson for such great questions and for including an excerpt from my novella, The Yellow Scarf.
