I have to admit, I’m only excited about fall while the temps remain in the 50s and 60s. Lower than that and I get a bit cranky thinking about winter!

But I have a new release coming out, so that’s one good thing happening when the snow flies! DOWN THE DARKEST ROAD, book 2 in the Cady Maddix series will be released 12/10/10!

An obsessive killer, a witness with secrets, and a deputy US marshal with her own dark demons collide in this gripping mystery from the bestselling author of Cold Dark Places.

Dylan was only a child when he and his friend stumbled onto a crime scene deep in the woods. His friend was killed that night. And Bruce Forrester, the man who had chased the boys in the woods, disappeared. But he’s never stopped looking for the only living witness. Ever since, Dylan and his family have been on the run.

Deputy US Marshal Cady Maddix knows what it’s like to be haunted by a traumatizing childhood. She’s determined to track Forrester down and give Dylan the peace of mind he deserves. Only the more Cady delves into the case, the more pieces of a strange puzzle emerge—about Forrester, Dylan, and Cady’s own inescapable demons.

As Cady grows closer to separating the truth from the lies, someone is determined to stop her at all costs. And the consequences of putting the past to rest could prove deadly.

Although part of a series, this is a stand-alone book and one doesn’t have to have read COLD DARK PLACES to enjoy this novel.

And in other news… I’m currently at work on book three in the trilogy, A DARKER TRUTH. Cady confronts a bitter truth about her dark past while she’s on the hunt for a brutal killer. Her only clues are a mysterious tattoo and her mentally ill kidnapper in this thrilling conclusion of the Cady Maddix series.
