I remember well the huge transition of going off to college. I felt like I’d finally become “an adult.” Well, it turns out life is full of transitions and big moments, and releasing your first novel ranks right up there as a Big One. This December (Dec 2 – 7) there will be a blog review tour of the first book in my Covert Series, which is called Covert Assignment. Although the reviews will focus on the first book in the series, Covert Assignment, all three books in the Covert series will release in early December. Here’s what Covert Assignment book is about:
Covert Assignment is a New Adult, Coming of Age Novel with a strong romantic element. Elle is ready for graduation and full-fledged adulthood: no more living like the leftover of her parent’s divorce. After four years of year-round study, she’s about to graduate with a master’s degree in Information Science (the 21st century term for Library Science). Elle’s got a ten-year plan as well-designed as any model for analyzing metadata: earn her JD/MBA, enjoy a couple of years as a single professional, then marry her college sweetheart, Adam, and start her own family.
Yet Elle feels like she returned to an alternate universe her final semester. There are pictures of Adam with a classmate who must be surgically enhanced, but he insists he wants Elle. The organization that’s funding her thesis? It’s a shell corporation for the CIA. They “accelerated” her completion timetable, so hot operative Preston Raddock is tasked to work with her. Preston isn’t just hot: he’s hot for Elle, but is he offering happy ever after or happy for right now? Oh, and the CIA offers her a job, a once-in-a-lifetime chance to join the intelligence community. If only she could develop a predictive model to tell her which decisions have the greater likelihood for happiness.
Covert Assignment is about the unexpected turns life can take when making “adult” decisions.
