The China scenes are fast paced and strikingly atmospheric, and Ellie's backstory--her and Trey's return from combat is tough, sad, and endearing--is given in doses that perfectly complement the central action.I was intrigued by the cover blurb for Rock Paper Tiger:
Iraq vet Ellie McEnroe is down and out in China, trying to lose herself in the alien worlds of performance artists and online gamers. When a chance encounter with a Muslim fugitive drops her down a rabbit hole of conspiracies, Ellie must decide who to trust among the artists, dealers, collectors and operatives claiming to be on her side – in particular, a mysterious organization operating within a popular online game.Lisa will be here tomorrow to talk about things you can do as a writer to tilt the odds in your favor – advice that can help get you published and read.
Speaking of reading, if you’d like to look closer at Rock Paper Tiger, maybe even buy a copy, check out her website. Then come back tomorrow to ask questions or to find out what the publicity person for her publisher said was the “single most useful thing an author can do.”
Any guesses what that might be?
