Another writer friend has a newly released novel! Amanda's The Stranger You Seek is the first in a mystery series set not just in Atlanta, but in the Decatur neighborhood I used to live in. In fact, here's an article by a Decatur resident about Amanda - "The Secret Life of My Pet Sitter."
A fine thing about Facebook and Twitter is that we've been able to follow along as Random House got smart and signed Amanda up, then we heard about the first editors meeting and saw pictures of the cover, and now we've squealed together via the internet about great pre-publication reviews.
Below is the trailer for The Stranger You Seek. I haven't watched it yet since I never want to know much about the plot before I read. Plus, I might get scared.
