NOWHERE TO HIDE is on the stands!

Allrighty, then: NOWHERE TO HIDE is finally here!  Both books from of last winter's mega-writing marathon are now available.  Yay!  NOWHERE TO HIDE's companion story, NOWHERE TO RUN, has been a bestseller since its debut the end of July, which is a new record for me.  To celebrate, I'm at the beach with my husband, my dog, my daughter, my son-in-law and my two granddaughters.  Happy end of the summer to all of you!

NOWHERE TO RUN. . .except to the bookstore

Okay, it's finally here, my next thriller: NOWHERE TO RUN.  When John, my editor, suggested I write two books that would be published back-to-back, I thought, "Great idea!" and then when I went to write those books and found myself speeding past deadlines with the velocity of a bullet train, I thought, "Yeah, whose brilliant idea was this again?"  But. . .voila they're finally here!  NOWHERE TO RUN is available TODAY, and NOWHERE TO HIDE will debut August 28th.  And yes, John, you are brilliant.

DEAR DIARY, you're my favorite book. . .today

DEAR DIARY will soon be offered on Amazon Kindle for FREE!  Yes, you heard me. . .free. . .which is a pretty darn good price.  When will this awesome deal be available, you may ask?  Look for it tomorrow, on Saturday, July 7th, and if circumstances prevent that, Sunday will be the day. DEAR DIARY, as ever, is one of my favorite books, but then I say that about every book that comes out so I may not be a reliable critic.

Beachin' It!

I'm at the beach with my agent and my sister and we're actually enjoying some good weather for a change.  80 degrees. Who knew?  Just finished putting the finishing touches on NOWHERE TO RUN and NOWHERE TO HIDE, my back to back thrillers that will be out later this summer, so I thought a little R&R was in order. . .like a day and a half. . .before I jump back into SOMETHING WICKED, the third book about the colony.  And yes, as you can see, Lisa and I have reverted to beach makeup once again!

Happy Birthday, Binks

Happy Birthday to The Binkster!

Ten years ago today, Binks entered this world.  I blogged about her birthday last year and showed a picture of when she was born. . .the one where she looks like an alien.  But today, I'm putting up a recent picture of her and her "I'm kind of a big deal" T-shirt.  For those who need catching up, I created the pug, The Binkster, as a character in my debut mystery, CANDLE APPLE RED, before I actually found the real deal.  She's my first ever dog, and it's just crazy that she's already ten!

BTW, I have a few extra T-shirts left over: mediums and XXL's.  (Sad to say, the larges and XL's are long gone.)  If you are interested, go to my website -- www.nancybush.net -- and write a message in my guest book with what size you would like and your snail mail address for shipping. There aren't tons of T-shirts left, but I'll send them out till they're gone.

And again, Happy Birthday, Binks!  You're the best!

Caffeineless and semi-proud of it

I started the year under the stress of a deadline -- kind of like every other year.  But this time I decided that caffeine wasn't helping my cause, so I quit on December 31st and after a crashing headache that pretty much took me out for New Year's Eve, I have been caffeineless all 13 days of the new year.  So...yes, I feel better, which is....disturbing.  I really like my caffeine, and I was convinced I needed it to keep up the pace.  I've been writing like a mad woman to complete my latest thriller, NOWHERE TO RUN, and I do believe the book will be done next week...all without caffeine.  In fact, I would go so far as to say I have more energy now.  No draggy afternoons.  No bleary mornings.  Don't even seem to need as much sleep.  Kind of a pisser, really, because the way I talked myself into this little experiment was with the clear understanding that it would only be temporary.
So, now what?
Can I really stand to be one of those people who has to ask for something different?  To look for the orange dot on the coffee pot at the Coffee Nook?  To have to question the order when I go somewhere else for coffee?  This has no caffeine, right?  Would you recheck?  I'm sorry.  I just can't have caffeine.
My whole view of myself has been rearranged.
Could be an existential crisis except for the fact that I don't have time for one.
