Launch of Riptide

One of the great things about Twitter and blogging is all the fantastic people you can connect with.  I guess writing is a lonely path in many ways, after all the only way your words will get written is by going off on your own and writing them. 

Perhaps this is why writers who meet on line are so supportive of each other.  We have all travelled a similar path, have failed and failed better, and have kept on going because by and large we have no choice.  At some point in all our writing journeys, we realise that we are writers, and that writing is something we will hopefully always do.

Anyhow, one of the fantastic people I've been lucky enough to meet is a writer called Debbi Mack. This week she launches her novel Riptide and it sounds like a real page turner! I will post all Debbi's details below, so feel free to join the Riptide Launch Party on Facebook during the book launch week from March 12 to March 17, 2012, and/or comment with this post.
All details on the launch are posted here.

Plot summary:

Stephanie Ann “Sam” McRae’s stay in Ocean City for the annual Maryland bar association convention turns into a busman's holiday when her best friend Jamila is arrested for a murder she didn’t commit. All signs point to a frame, but Jamila’s local counsel must plea bargain, placing a permanent stain on the ambitious attorney’s spotless record, unless Sam and the private investigator on the case find evidence to clear her.
Sam has her work cut out for her, given that the victim is the stepson of a local wealthy entrepreneur and poultry producer and no one will talk to her, including the investigator hired on the case. Meanwhile, Jamila herself appears to be holding out on Sam.
With the clock ticking down to the convention and preliminary hearing, Sam must uncover secrets, lies, and fraud to find the real killer. At what cost will that knowledge come for Sam?
