To introduce Show Me the Gold to potential readers and give a bonus to the regular ones, I wrote “A Day in the Life of Phoenix Smith” for Dru’s Book Musings (http://drusbookmusing.com).
If you leave a comment on my blog by January 11, 2015, you may win a free copy of the book.
Here’s how the story of a typical day for Phoenix begins.
Achilles licked my hand to remind me to get up and take him on our morning run.
I sat up before my hyperactive Belgian Malinois could lick my face. “Sorry I overslept, boy. My souvenir of Istanbul kept me awake.” I touched the still-tender bullet wound that marked my last CIA mission. No twinges. Across the hall, Annalynn’s bed was made and her windows closed. She’d gone to the sheriff’s department early to cajole deputies into taking extra shifts, and she always fed Achilles before she left.
To follow Phoenix and Achilles through the day and comment for a chance at the giveaway, go to http://drusbookmusing.com. Dru posted the story January 4, 2015.
