A BG Signs With Abingdon
I'm happy to let you all know that Ronie Kendig has sold her first novel, an espionage thriller titled Dead Reckoning, to Barbara Scott of Abindgon Press. The novel is scheduled for release March 2010. The deal was negotiated by agent Steve Laube.
About Dead Reckoning:
Underwater archeologist Shiloh Blake is consumed with passion for the water and angry at the injustices of life. Her first large-scale dig traps her in the middle of an international meltdown and forces her to flee for her life. When she spots a man trailing her, she questions who he is and how he's always one step ahead of her.
Former Green Beret Reece Jaxon now serves his country as a covert operative. His mission is entangled by the beguiling Shiloh Blake as he hunts down the source to a dead drop in the Arabian Sea.
The only way to prevent a nuclear disaster is to join forces with Reece. But will Shiloh violate her vow to never become a spy like her father? Will they put aside their differences to end this nightmare?
Congratulations, Ronie! Congratulations, Steve, for making the deal.
According to Barbara's last email to me, there's probably going to be at least one more reader from this blog who will make her list. We're anxiously awaiting that news.
