Happy New Year, FAMILIES AND OTHER ENEMIES!
Maybe that’s just me. I love my husband and kids, but in the last months there’s been a lot of togetherness and eventually the bonds of kinship wear thin. Yes, yes, I do know they’re all tired of me, too. That’s why I think you’ll love FAMILIES AND OTHER ENEMIES, a Cape Charade e-novella about family and how challenging and downright scary relationships can be.
Order FAMILIES AND OTHER ENEMIES:
I hope you enjoy FAMILIES AND OTHER ENEMIES, that you’re looking forward to the January 29 release of WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER, and that you enjoy a prosperous, healthy, peaceful and full-of-books 2019!
You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your family.
That’s one of those interesting universal truths that gets quoted a lot in the Army on overseas assignments. Because everyone misses their family. But it’s not their family who has their back, who will be with them under fire and volunteer to help them scout out the enemy. Friends, comrades-in-arms—in combat, they have greater impact than family. They become more to you than your blood kin.
You get back home, and your family, the people who knew you growing up, are aliens to you because they never experienced what you experienced, likely never fired an automatic weapon, never lobbed a grenade, never took on enemy fire on a cold, dark road in the Afghan mountains. They don’t understand why you flinch when the campfire pops or stay awake all night to avoid confronting the nightmares.
Most of the time, they don’t want to know. They want to tell you about the harrowing time they were barreling down a ski slope and broke a ski, or someone backed into them in the Safeway parking lot and their insurance got stuck for it, or they dropped a boulder on Grandpa’s fledgling walnut tree and it lived, anyway. They think they’re sharing the kinds of ordeals a soldier faces in combat. Bless their hearts.
Take me. I’m Kellen Adams. When I came back to the States after six years in the Army, I had one living relative I hadn’t seen for eight years, and I had no desire to go see Aunt Cora Rae. For one thing…
DEAD GIRL RUNNING in paperback!
Now! DEAD GIRL RUNNING is out in mass market (pocket-sized) paperback and with reduced ebook prices, and as a bonus includes HARD TO KILL, the short story that introduces you to Kellen Adams! Get it now from your favorite bookseller or order online at:
You remember the original trade paperback cover; gray and yellow, with a woman’s still figure looking out to the horizon. In the larger format, the image was effective, but think about a rack of mass market suspense in your local grocery store; it’s a mad jumble of colors and words.
My publisher wanted a cover change that would catch the eye and appeal to a new group of readers. In this video I show both covers and explain the differences.

WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER (had better start running) Cover!
At last! I got the cover for my Cape Charade January thriller, WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER! I had no idea how the Art Department was going to portray Kellen Adams, because…well, here. Let me share the copy:
One secret, one nightmare, one lie. You guess which is which.
— I have the scar of a gunshot on my forehead.
— I have willfully misrepresented my identity to the U. S. military.
— I’m the new mother of a seven-year-old girl.
Kellen Adams suffers from a year-long gap in her memory. A bullet to the brain will cause that. But she’s discovering the truth, and what she learns changes her life, her confidence, her very self. She finds herself in the wilderness, on the run, unprepared, her enemies unknown—and she is carrying a priceless burden she must protect at all costs. The consequences of failure would break her. And Kellen Adams does not break.
WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER … had better start running.
You see what I mean. There’s a lot to work with here, but to make this person come alive visually…whew! I think the artist captured the complex Kellen Adams. If you’d like to read more about the cover, click here. If you’d like to read a WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER excerpt, click here.
WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER, coming on January 29 into your eager hands: hardcover, trade paperback, and ebook.
Christina’s Friends Don’t Want to Murder Her
I’ve posted the newest newsletter for you:
You know how much I love a witty review, and I cackled when I read this one for HARD TO KILL on Goodreads: “I’m concerned that author Christina Dodd only has friends who want to murder her. ”
When I told my friends, they said stuff like, “Not all the time,” and “I swear I never said a word.” READ MORE…
HARD TO KILL now!
“What about you?” Hackett asked. “What are you going to do when you get out?”
“I’m in for the long haul,” Kellen replied. “I’m career military.”
“But you’re pretty!”
She looked at him sideways.
“I mean… not that you’re not a damned good soldier…” He glanced around wildly, looking for an escape, stiffened, pointed and yelled, “Watch out!”
