I’m expecting a book! Yes, I hope for grandchildren when the time’s right, but I’m excited to finally see some of my “imaginary friends” come to life in print (or e-print). Over the next few months, I’ll introduce them to you.
The novel’s called Heaven’s Prey and it’s Christian fiction. Choose NOW Publishing plans to release it in November. Here’s the tag line:
A grieving woman is abducted by a dangerous offender—and it may be the answer to her prayers.
It’s about a serial killer’s last chance at redemption—not the gentle inspirational read many associate with the Christian genre. I’ve aimed for a suspense level similar to Brandilyn Collins or Terri Blackstock. Not as intense as Ted Dekker or Steven James.
Like this sort of thing? Great! I hope you’ll read it and spread the word.
Not your cup of tea? No worries! I hope you’ll tell your friends who might enjoy it.

Will it be in print as well as ebook?
Yes, Carolyn, it’ll be available in both formats. As much as I’ve come to prefer ebooks, I’m really looking forward to holding a print copy!
Congratulations, Janet! I look forward to reading it. I love suspense.
Thanks, Pam. I love suspense too, but only “light” suspense. My thriller-reading days are done, and this one’s more intense than I usually read. God has a sense of humour.
Yes, Janet. On this premise alone, I have major curiosity. Your book sounds wonderful. Love Terri Blackstock. Congratulations…can’t wait to read Heaven’s Prey. And sign me up for a print hard copy. I want to cuddle it, like
I hope I’ll be bringing consignment copies to the Write! Canada bookstore next year! Cuddling books. I get that. And I’ll certainly be cuddling my own copy! This is a lifetime dream, coming true. God is so good.
Hurrah… I am so thrilled for you. This is wonderful news. Congrats.
Thanks, Janis! I’m excited.
Wonderful, Janet! And have you already started the next one!?
I’m actually reworking the next one, Elsie. It’s finished but needs some tweaking. It’s a companion story more than a sequel. One book with a serial killer, and I really didn’t want to think about him anymore. 🙂 Although I do. They all stay in my head.
Congratulations Janet! How exciting that your baby is coming to publication!
Thanks, Ann. I’m really looking forward to this.
