After years (yes, I confess– years) of writing, rewriting, editing, reworking, and more editing on Little Black Dress, we have LAUNCH in 3… 2… 1…!
And this is just the beginning. I hope to add two sequels and two prequels to The LBD Project Series. I am planning to release both Red Heels and Bare Essentials before the year’s end. The prequels, On the Runway and Off the Rack, are scheduled for release next year. (I’m hoping for a simultaneous release on those novels.) I’m trying to leave the door open for more books in the series, but we’ll see how it all goes. I have a list of 30 story ideas that I carry with me on my phone, and I’d really like to get to them all in my lifetime.
I just want to thank all my readers for the support and encouragement you bless me with every single day. You inspire me.
If you haven’t pre-ordered my #LittleBlackDressNovel yet, that’s okay. Here are the links to order it in the format you like!
Hedge Parker was born the third child, with ten sisters, to Linda and Oscar Parker of Sidney, Nebraska. As the only son in the family, Hedge took it upon himself to become his sisters’ protector. This led to a constant series of fights throughout his school years. Hedge became known in his small town as a trouble-maker, and by the time he entered high school, he was a perfect candidate for military school. Hedge straightened himself out, and upon graduation, enlisted in the US Army.
His broad skillset and above-average IQ caught the eyes of nearly every national intelligence agency for recruitment. Hedge joined InDIGO at the age of 24, becoming one of the youngest field operatives in the organization’s history.
With his partner, Eleanor McKinnon, Hedge developed an idea for a nearly undetectable surveillance suit, to be beta-tested by Agent McKinnon. After getting the green light for official development, the pair find themselves in Mexico City when their mission goes sideways. Agent McKinnon was critically hurt and taken out of the field. Hedge continued his field operations, refusing to take on another partner.
After a few years as a solo agent, consulting on the LBD project, Hedge agrees to take on a team when the dress becomes officially activated.
Evan Tyler was born an only child to Gordon and Maggie Tyler in West Texas on one of the several Army bases where her father was stationed. Her natural red hair, teal blue eyes, and tall slender figure got her noticed by her high school drama teacher, who sent her to a modeling agent. Evan took advantage of the opportunity and began modeling haute couture all over the world.
On one modeling assignment in Europe, Evan found herself in a desperate situation that had her running for her life. That led her to the US Embassy in Milan, where she met Rowan Kirk, an agent for InDIGO, the International Discretionary Intelligence Gathering Organization. Evan not only helped Kirk stop a madman but she found her calling in international espionage. Kirk became her partner in fieldwork and Evan decided to have a permanent receiver implanted in her ear canal, which allowed her and Kirk to communicate without a tell-tale earbud.
After a couple of years working with Rowan (Red) Kirk as her partner, Evan received a request from InDIGO to be fitted for an experimental field suit, outfitted with high-tech surveillance devices and state of the art body armor. After her fitting, months passed before Evan heard anything more about the suit, and she had given up hope of it ever being produced.
Kirk and Evan are suddenly called to Paris to follow a lead on a fashion designer, Anton Hrevic, where Evan is surprised to find that she will be field-testing the suit for the first time. And even more of a surprise, she discovers the top-secret suit is actually the perfect Little Black Dress.
