Celebrating with a Giveaway - Laura Griffin
I have the coolest job in the world. At least, I think so. As a writer of fiction, I get to zero in on an idea that interests me, research the hell out of it, and then write a purely made up 400-page story about it. Sound fun?
The reason I like my job so much (besides the fact that I love, love, love to create stories!) is that I get to meet all kinds of interesting people. For my new release, UNSPEAKABLE, which features an FBI heroine, I got to meet some truly amazing folks at the FBI. Visiting the Academy at Quantico, where my heroine underwent the most grueling training of her life—helped me get into my character’s head and hopefully write a more vivid book. After seeing first-hand where Special Agent Elaina McCord got her professional start, after learning about everything she would have gone through, and after interviewing real female agents on the job, I was able to much better understand the protagonist of my book.
UNSPEAKABLE features rookie FBI agent Elaina McCord, who goes to a Texas beach resort to help local police solve a string of brutal murders. When the case turns frighteningly personal, true crime writer Troy Stockton may be the only person Elaina can trust.
If you like a chilling mystery with a dose of hot romance, I hope you’ll like UNSPEAKABLE! And to celebrate the book’s release, I’m giving away a $20 Borders gift card to one lucky winner who e-mails me with the subject line Bags N Blogs. I’ll draw a winner Sunday night.
Good luck and happy reading!
Congratulations to Rose of Seaford, New York! Rose won a $20 Borders gift card from Laura Griffin, who posted here last week about her new release, UNSPEAKABLE.
