Updates on What I’m Working On

So much of my time is spent focusing on my romances under Ruth Ann Nordin that I don’t often get over here. 🙂 It’s not that I don’t care about the books I do under Barbara, but I’m just swamped with real life and the Ruth books that these tend to get put on the back burner. I’m not sure how many books a year I’ll be putting out under this pen name. I’ll do what I can as time permits.

Right now, I have one that I am working on for a release May 5 of next year. I don’t know if I’ll get it out before then or not. But it’ll be out by May 5 for sure.

This one is a YA thriller. It’s high in psychological suspense, and there is a little bit of gruesomeness in it. It’s not a fantasy like the Dimensions trilogy was.

I updated the cover so that the name wasn’t scrunched up at the top. I also gave it a new font. These aren’t big changes, but I think the book looks less “cramped” this way.

While I’m here posting, I thought I’d share the description and the links where you can pre-order it.

Here’s the description:

I saw a murder. One of my classmates killed another student.

And I made a tragic mistake. I didn’t tell anyone right away. I didn’t tell my mom. I didn’t tell any of my teachers. I didn’t even tell the police. I was so scared that I kept it to myself. By the time I got the courage to say something, no one believed me.

Only one person believes me. And he’s the one who killed her. If I could go back and change anything, it would be that I would have told everyone right away.

Because by keeping quiet, I’ve given the killer an advantage. I’ve given him time. Time to come up with ways to hide his crime. Without a body, there is no evidence. And everyone thinks the girl is with her aunt and uncle.

Now the killer is coming after me, and he’s determined to keep me quiet…forever.

Here’s where you can find it: 

Barnes & Noble


Apple iBooks

If you click on this link, you’ll also be able to get to Indigo, Angus & Robertson, Mondadori. I’m not familiar with those stores, but Draft 2 Digital distributes to them.

The book won’t be available on places like Amazon, Playster, 24Symbols, Scribd, and Bibliotheca until the book is released.


While I was updating the cover for You’re Next, I contacted my cover artist, Stephannie Beman, about updating the third book cover in the Dimensions Trilogy.

Here’s the old cover:

Here’s the new cover:

I like the new one a lot more, and I have just gone over to Draft 2 Digital to upload it, so the changes will be going through soon on the retailers.
