Shannon's Law: New Emma Calin Romance

Gurus differ about titles. Some say you should have one right from the start. Rival gurus think it should be designed as part of the cover. I can't recall the names of any books by gurus. My new novel is called "Shannon's Law". It was born at a healthy weight of 94,000 words and is so much alive it even has its own Facebook  page for you to "like":

Now, during the long incubation period, I had to make a rather serious decision. A wonderful publisher actually wanted it. This is what I had looked for all my life. At last I could become a member of the Romantic Novelists Association. So, perversely,  I turned them down. Professional acceptance will have to wait. The industry has changed so much and since I published "Knockout" I have learned a lot. I've even set up Gallo-Romano Media, my own publishing business that now handles third party books.  With breathtaking arrogance I have decided to go it alone again. "Knockout" was always intended as the first in a series of hardcore modern police romance stories. The flavour is very much girl cop on top. They're tough but not rough. There's handbags, toe-rags, sandbags and glad rags. It's Passion Patrol.

If you check out the Facebook page you'll find a cool competition to win a signed pre-release printed copy or tickets to the live launch event in the UK. Yes - a live stately home launch. I can't reveal the story but here is a full frontal view of our launch venue, complete with hard upright pillars at the entrance. Much of the action takes place here. 

I am a woman with a plan. The countdown has begun. The Facebook page is up. The cover reveal will be on 6th January 2014. A Pinterest board has developed in parallel with the book, featuring nearly everything from venue to menu. Teaser silhouettes will proceed a Pinterest reveal International blog tour. The book will launch on February 28th  with a virtual tea party. The live launch event will be on 2nd March 2014. Only Nostradamus can take us beyond that date.

  1. I love police stories. I also love series books. To date (I haven't read your books yet) my favorite police series is Julie Miller Task Force. I can't wait to read your books.
