This is going to be short this month. The new cover of my next novel is out and I’m seeking reviews. Its release date is sometime in 2022.
Kiss of the Assassin is an international thriller that spans 10 years and takes place in Russia, Cambodia, and Miami, to name a few. If you can offer a review, please email me at joylene[dot]butler[at]gmail.com or message me through FaceBook at: https://www.facebook.com/cluculzwriter. I’ll send you a pdf version, followed by a kindle version as soon as I receive one from my publisher. I will also reciprocate if/when you need a review.
If I owe you a review, let me know. Since the pandemic, I’ve misplaced my to-do list and these days my memory isn’t at its best.
What stresses me out the most? Asking for reviews.
What delights me? Creating scenes that flow and make me forget where I am.
Blurb: Marina Antonovna, a Soviet spy, and Mateo Arcusa, an American homicide lieutenant first meet in Cambodia during the Vietnam War as enemies. Fearful that the most powerful man in the Soviet Union, KGB Chairman Vladimir Kurenkov, has ordered her death, Marina risks everything to defect to the United States. She promises Mateo that her days as an assassin are over. Vladimir is determined to do whatever it takes to bring her back and, by threatening Mateo’s life, forces Marina to break her promise.
ps. If you’re not currently available to do a review, no problem. I have no release date as yet.
PSS. I’m sorry I should have mentioned that Kiss of the Assassin has graphic violence in the firefight scenes that take place during the Vietnam war. There is also profanity in those scenes.
