J.L. Campbell’s romantic suspense novel, Contraband, is rolling out in ink as we speak and is scheduled to release in April 2010. She just received a copy of her totally yummy-cool cover. Check it out!
Here’s a sneak peek synopsis:
As master of his destiny, Paul Weekes does what is necessary to survive. He makes his own fortune, but his luck nosedives when hijackers target his illicit shipments. He has no proof, but suspects the police officer who facilitates his exports off the island of Xantrope has turned on him. To make things worse, Paul’s ne’er-do-well cousin is accidentally involved in a gang murder, and a hit is put on him.
A budding liaison with the cop’s niece adds more complication. Janine refuses to accept Paul’s way of life, but inadvertently becomes a victim of his lifestyle. Thrust into kidnapping, double cross and murder, Paul must choose between a relationship with Janine and staying alive long enough to change the course of his future.

And the ebook sales for Ann Simko’s Fallen have done tremendously well since its launch three weeks ago, and her publisher, Lyrical Press, just offered her a surprise contract for a print edition, set to release in April 2010 as well.
