An unexpected perk

There are a lot perks that come with writing for a living. I could work in my jammies if I wanted (rarely do, because I still gotta run kidlets to sitters, etc) but I can work in very casual clothes. I can set my own hours (although that leaves way too much time to play). Most of all, I get to do what I love, and something I’ve got a talent for.

But there was an unexpected perk to this biz I hadn’t expected. ARCS. Not mine. But from friends.

One of the most recent perks I enjoyed was Red by Jordan Summers. It was very, very, very good.

The blurb…

War is brewing in a near-future world where murder is all but unheard of and the existence of creatures known as the Others has yet to be proven. In the end, one woman will face her fears to stand and fight.

Gina Santiago is a member of an elite tactical team in charge of protecting the world. She’s devoted her life to apprehending the most heinous criminals that prey on society—and now she’s after the worst one yet.

On her own, with no backup, the trail takes her to a dusty, tight-knit town on the fringes of society, where everyone’s a suspect. Even the sexy sheriff, Morgan Hunter, isn’t telling her everything.

The closer Gina comes to finding out the secret of this sleepy little town and its big, bad sheriff, the more scared she gets—because she’s beginning to realize that she has a secret, too. A secret that will change her life…and make her the killer’s next prey.

It’s not out until November, but I suspect this could be a future BOMContest prize. 🙂
