Romance and danger all in one gorgeous package

Please tell us about your newest book.

Deadly Relations, the third book of the Deadly Trilogy, was published on September 21.  Here is a brief description of the plot.

A serial killer of young women hides in plain sight in a quiet county in the Midwest.  He hides behind a friendly face that inspires trust, a personality that is charming and persuasive, and a rage to kill.

Detective Jennifer Brennan knows that an abduction is the equivalent of a nuclear blast to a family. So when three young women go missing and are found murdered on her watch, she vows to find the killer — or die trying.

Detective Blake Stone has been looking for a woman like Jennifer Brennan his entire life.  Now that he’s found her, can he convince her to trust again?

Two detectives race against time to find the killer before he strikes again.  It is the most important case of their careers.  It could be their last.

What can we expect from you in the future?

My next book Profile of Evil will be published in the spring of 2013.  It is the first book of the Profile Trilogy. Here is a brief description of the plot.

Carly Stone is a brilliant FBI agent who’s seen more than her share of evil.  Leaving the agency, she becomes a consultant for Indiana County Sheriff Brody Chase.  He needs her help to catch a savage killer who is luring teenaged girls to their death in the handsome sheriff’s community.

The two are determined to stop a dangerous predator before he takes another life — at any cost.

How can readers contact you?

I love hearing from readers.  Readers can contact me at alexagrace@cfl.rr.com.

 

Do your readers’ comments influence you in any way?

Absolutely!  Early in my journey, I pledged to stay close to my readers and listen to them. What I am hearing from them (loud and clear) is that they want to continue to hear about the characters introduced to them in the Deadly Trilogy series. So in the Profile Series, some of those characters will pop in and out.

I had no idea that I would enjoy hearing from readers as much as I do. An email from one of them has the potential to make my day.

How did you get started writing?

I wrote a romance novel in 1985, went the traditional route and it was not published.  I made a career change that year and for the next 25 plus years; I devoted myself 100% to my training management positions.  When I lost my job in 2011, I did a lot of Internet research in self-publishing.  Indie authors like Theresa Ragan and John Locke really motivated me to take the indie route. Like them, I wanted to retain control of book design, writing, marketing, etc.  Thus, my indie journey began.

Where do your ideas come from?

I have always had a vivid imagination.  I think of a possible plot then play the “what if game” with myself.

What is the easiest part of writing?  The hardest?

My favorite and easiest part of writing is playing the “what if game” with myself.  Since my books include crimes and crime scenes, I play this game quite a lot.

Like most Indie authors, having to spend time on other things like marketing when I am in the middle of writing an important scene is tough.

I recently created a street team of amazing readers who pledge to take over some of the book promotion so that I can write more books.  I’m very lucky to have them.’

Deadly Relations Blurb:

In Deadly Relations, a serial killer of young women hides in plain sight in a quiet county in the Midwest.  Concealed behind a friendly and trustworthy face, no one knows he has a rage to kill he can’t control — until it’s too late.

Detective Jennifer Brennan, still haunted by her abduction five years before, devotes her life to serve and protect others.  So when three young women go missing and are found murdered on her watch, she vows to find the killer — or die trying.

A personal relationship with her partner, Detective Blake Stone, would be career suicide. But the connection Jennifer has with him is nothing short of electric.  Working with Blake daily and denying her attraction is hard.  But when he moves in to protect her, resisting him becomes pure torture.

As they fight temptation, two detectives race against time to find the killer before he strikes again.  It is the most important case of their careers.  It could be their last.
