Janet Blogs About us

My good friend, and now co-author, Janet Evanovich blogged today about how we ended up writing THE HEIST together…

“I’ve been a Lee Goldberg fan for a long time, so I was thrilled when he agreed to co-author a series with me.  The decision actually took place over a pizza and a pitcher of beer when we realized we had the same vision.  We wanted to write books about fascinating people who were involved in high stakes adventures set in glamorous, exotic locations …like Dajmaboutu, Indonesia, and Calabasas, California.

We had fun writing The Heist, and we’re still even talking to each other after twelve edits.  We hope you have just as much fun reading our first co-authored effort.”

I’m Stunned

The heist coverI just stumbled on this…

THE HEIST is the #10 bestselling ebook on Amazon…and #6 bestselling book on Amazon in any format… and it’s not even out until 6/18! I am stunned. Someone get me smelling salts…

A Peek at The Heist

From the Janet Evanovich newsletter:

The Heist
On Sale June 18, 2013

The con is on!
From Janet and her new co-author, Lee Goldberg (Monk), comes an electrifying new series featuring an FBI agent who always gets her man, and a fearless con artist who lives for the chase.
     FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself, for the past five years, the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox—an international crook she wants in more ways than one. 
     Audacious, handsome, and dangerously charming, Nicolas Fox is a natural con man, notorious for running elaborate scams on very high-profile people.  At first he did it for the money.  Now, he does it for the thrill.  He knows the FBI has been hot on his trail—particularly Kate O’Hare, who has been watching his every move.  For Nick, there’s no greater rush than being pursued by a beautiful woman… even one who aims to lock him up. But just when it seems like Nicolas Fox has been captured for good, he pulls off his greatest con of all: he convinces the FBI to offer him a job, working side by side, with special agent Kate O'Hare. 
     Problem is, teaming up to stop a corrupt investment banker who’s hiding on a private island in Indonesia, is going to test O’Hare’s patience and Fox’s skill.  Not to mention the skills of their rag-tag team of flamboyant actors, wanted wheelmen and Kate’s dad.  High speed chases, pirates and Toblerone bars are all in a day’s work… if O’Hare and Fox don’t kill each other first.
Read part one of chapter one on later this month!

2013-01-25 19.56.15I've been so busy, I haven't been able to honor my New Year's resolution to post more often to the blog. But I'm sure you'll understand.

Last week I was in Florida, indulging my inner Fabio, doing a photo shoot with Janet Evanovich for our adventure novel THE HEIST, the first in our new series, which comes out June 18th.

Janet and I had a terrific time together, almost as much fun as we had writing the book, and I think that's going to come through in our author photos. But there was no rest for either one of us. We're already deep into writing the second book in the series and having a blast!

THE HEIST is coming

I've finally got a title and a pub date to share with you for the first book in the new series that I'm writing with superstar Janet Evanovich. It's called THE HEIST and comes out June 18th from Random House

We had so much fun writing THE HEIST, which is a rip-roaring, globe-trotting adventure that takes our heroes, a crack female FBI agent and an irresistably charming con man, all over the world. Here's how Headline Books, our UK publisher, describes it:

"Meet Kate Winslow – beautiful, street-wise and resourceful. A woman who is used to getting things done, and getting them done her way. After all, she's an ex-Navy seal. Now she's in the FBI where, like a guided missile, she always gets her target. Meet Danny Cole – irrevent, gorgeous and wealthy bad boy who loves his work…which is pulling off high-profile, high-risk cons all over the world. And never getting caught. Put the two together and it's an explosive mix. Kate has been trying to trap Danny for five years. And now she thinks she's got him…or has she? Blue skies, romance, crime and adventure all rolled into one fast-paced, heart-stopping thriller of a novel. Winslow and Cole : dynamic, diverse, dedicated, dangerous – and desirable."

I couldn't be more proud of the book, and we're jumping right into writing book #2 now, which is due in August.

In the meantime, I am also working on KING CITY 2  and a novel-version of my film 2008 movie  FAST TRACK. And I am itching to share some big movie news with you, but I can't yet (for one thing, it *still* may not happen, and for another, I have to wait for the studio to announce it first).

All of the above is why I haven't been nearly as active on this blog as I used to be…I just have too much going on. One of my resolutions in 2013 is to try to blog at least once a week.
