Amazon Best of the Year: THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM!

Wallet Warning! THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM is on Amazon’s Best of the Year list! When you look at this list, your wallet with scream (with joy!) Twenty. Great. Books. And yes, you remember correctly — last year BECAUSE I’M WATCHING (now available in paperback) was also one of Amazon’s Best of the Year. When I wrote the Amazon editor to thank her, she said, “Thank YOU—marvelous books like yours is what makes the world a better place.”

What did I do to celebrate? Let me put it this way — it’s hard to write the next book with fingers sticky from the caramel corn!

Christina Dodd’s Favorite Photobomber

I did a quick video showing off my huge DEAD GIRL RUNNING poster, and someone had to get in the act. Hint: If you could zoom in, you would see blond dog hair all over my knees. Wait for it…

101 Best Romance Novels of the Past 10 Years

Wallet warning! The American Library Association’s Booklist 101 Best Romance Novels of the Last 10 Years is out, and BECAUSE I’M WATCHING is on it! ” The tautly written novel’s plot proves that Dodd knows exactly how to keep readers’ nerves jangling; at the same time, her irresistibly dry wit helps lighten some of the darker twists and turns. Scary, sexy, and smartly written, Because I’m Watching is Dodd at the top of her game.” What an honor to be on this list with so many fabulous writers!

What this list means to you — you’ll follow the link, find a lot of fabulous books you haven’t read, and you’ll buy! That’s why I included the wallet warning; I may have (ahem) done something like that myself.

If you haven’t read BECAUSE I’M WATCHING (2016 Amazon Best of Romance, 2016 Booklist Best of Romantic Suspense, “Books To Read If You Love Nora Roberts!”-Bookbub), you can buy it now in ebook, paperback, hardcover and audio at your favorite local independent bookstore or:

Amazon Best of September THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM!

I love to share my good news with you, my readers. THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM is one of Amazon’s Best Books of September!

And THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM got a starred review from Library Journal!

★ 08/01/2017
With her future destroyed by an explosion aboard an airplane and her fiancé supposedly dead, Merida Falcon (aka Helen Brassard, Merry Bird) reluctantly agrees to a trophy-wife marriage in exchange for the reconstructive surgery that will turn her into a beauty. Nine years later, her cruel, controlling husband is dead, and Merida heads for the solitude and anonymity of Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula, intent on bringing down those who caused the accident that left her disfigured and unable to speak. Yet the tiny town of Virtue Falls is not the haven for which she’d hoped. When people from her past, including her former fiancé Benedict Howard, show up and the whispered phone calls begin, Merida knows she’s no longer safe—and then the gruesome killings start. Intriguing characters (including an especially horrifying villain), twin romances (Kateri and Stag’s prickly sparring as well as Merida and Benedict’s trust-challenged bond), and a complex plot that reveals itself with chilling precision keep the pages turning. VERDICT Tense, taut, and beautifully paced, this latest addition to Dodd’s series is another stunner; it will appeal to romance and suspense fans alike.

Added to the other wonderful reviews, this adds up to a great read for you—and I write for you!

You voted on the DEAD GIRL RUNNING cover!

My publisher and I asked for your opinion about the cover for my May 2018 release, DEAD GIRL RUNNING. 2216 of you voted, 425 of you commented on Facebook , and you gave feedback on Google+ , Instagram and Twitter. One observation predominated—on all covers, the title and author name were too faint to read. One reader said, “I’ll buy anything with your name on it, but I can’t read your name.” Ouch!

My publishing company leaped into action. The Art Department took the winning cover, made the font bolder, darken the yellow, and (bless them) darkened the background behind my name so it’s readable. And now… (drumroll, please), here’s the  DEAD GIRL RUNNING cover!

Thank you for taking the time to vote and especially for expressing your opinions. Because of you, we have a stronger cover that will pop online and on the shelves. DEAD GIRL RUNNING is the first in a new series, a spin-off from Virtue Falls and Bella Terra .
