NO ONE HEARD HER SCREAM - Released Mar 25 2008

A lifelong dream to sell my first book was realized in June 2006—the first shaky step of a toddler—when I sold to Avon HarperCollins. But it’s taken almost two years to make my dream a reality.

On March 25, 2008, my debut book NO ONE HEARD HER SCREAM will be released and on bookshelves. And like an anxious parent, I must let my baby go to brave the world alone. It’s been a challenge—a bittersweet roller coaster ride with… Continue

I was requested to hit the road. (And they told me this was a good thing.) As a debut author, this is an amazing honor. More details and the official announcement below, but one last thing--Woo… Continue

Confessions of a Debut Crime Fiction Author

"Hi. My name is Jordan. And I'm a … " I bite my lower lip and grimace, but push through the first step of my recovery program. "I'm a crime fiction author."

Oh sure, some might think this isn't a big thing to admit. Some may even envy my position, but I'm here to confess that as a crime fiction author, I'm not a well person. Bad men speak to me in my head—and I like it. I…

My First PW Review

My First Review ... EVER

I've never gotten a professional review of my work, so as you might imagine, I was sweating it—especially Publisher’s Weekly. But I received my PW review this weekend and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be compared to the likes of some of my favorite authors—Lisa Jackson, Lisa Gardner and Tami Hoag. I couldn’t wait to share the good news.

The Agent Question – Will They Respect Me in the Morning?

By Jordan Dane

As a debut author, your first relationship with an agent can be like a courtship. The first blush of an offer to represent is followed by the unforgettable satiation of that first deal. You light up a cigarette and revel that nothing will ever be the same again, but in…

What if God were on the Internet?

The ‘WHAT IF’ Game

For whatever reason, I’ve seen a lot of blogging this week on Dan Brown’s DaVinci Code. Dan’s book crossed a line from fiction into religion, a pretty sacred topic, pun intended. So it got me thinking (which is always dangerous).

WHAT IF religion crossed paths with the Internet? Hummmm…

1.) WHAT IF God blogged on MySpace? Would she have more friends than Barack Obama?

2.) WHAT…
