When Writers Shouldn't Read

My post today at Crime Fiction Collective might offend some people. If so, I apologize. I just needed to tell it the way I see it.

It's all better with friends.

The new story I'm working on brings back Jamie Taylor and her working dogs in a big way.

In my first book, Red Tide, Jamie and her sister Jax were almost burned alive. Because of that horrific experience Jamie added an accelerant detection dog (sometimes incorrectly referred to as an arson dog) to her family.

Gretchen is the name of her human remains detection dog (sometimes referred to as a cadaver dog).
Socrates (or Socks) is her search and rescue dog.
McKenzie is her medical/therapy dog.

And now there's her accelerant detection dog. He's a golden-lab mix.

Right now I'm calling him Smokey, but that's just too darned predictable. So, I've decided to open up the naming process. Whoever submits the name I choose will win one of my books (your choice), either Kindle or paperback.

If two people suggest the same name (and it's selected), whoever submitted the name first will win their choice of books.

Thanks for your help!

My New Baby

Thanks for bearing with me for just a little more BSP for The Sacrifice. I share my two wonderful endorsements at Crime Fiction Collective.

What a ride.
