First Tucker Novel, TERMINATED, Launches!

I signed my contract with Midnight Ink on July 10, 2013. The publication date for Terminated was then set to today, August 8, 2014. The time from signing the contract until today was 394 days. Not that I was counting…

This is the longest that I’ve ever anticipated an event. Even my wedding date wasn’t set 394 days in advance, and I happen to know that I only anticipated the birth of my children for nine months each.

Booyah! The date has finally arrived. Terminated is officially in the market and available everywhere. You can order a copy online or find it in your local book store. (Please feel free to review Terminated on goodreads.com, amazon.com, or anywhere that supports reader reviews.)

It’s been such a long time since I started writing Terminated (June 2005.) Thank you for supporting me as I’ve worked to become what I became today, a published novelist.
