Detective Nickie Savage is on the heels of a domestic child trafficking ring—the same one responsible for her own childhood abduction.

When the ringleaders repeatedly slip her grip, Nickie suspects there’s a mole funneling information to an outside source and calls upon her new husband, Duncan Reed, to find the leak.

But Nickie needs more than Duncan’s photographic memory and computer hacking skills to get back on track. She must make peace with the ghosts of the children she left behind.

Playlists For Each R.T. Wolfe Series? Yep. I do that!

RT Wolfe - Black Creek Series - Black Creek Burning - POD - AuthorUseWhat do you listen to as you drive? As you work? Do you need silence?

I have a playlist for each of my series. I can have noise around me as I work. In fact, I do much of my writing in coffee shops (thank you, Panera!) and can tune out whatever talking or music is going on around me. Okay, except that guy or gal who is talking on their cell at the table next to me. Why is that different? Hmm…

I’m not one of those people who work with headphones, however. My music listening comes before I write. Black Creek Series books were always preceded by The Fray, Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat. The Island Escape Series? Jack Johnson, Phillip Phillips and Ed Sheeran, of course. 🙂 Right now I’m working on finishing up the Nickie Savage Series. Nickie is so awesome. I love writing her. She is all about Train, Maroon 5 and Sam Smith. Savage Deception

In fact, I have music for much of everything I do. The morning is for Phillips, Craig & Dean, Jeff Gutt, and Elliot Morris. A long bike ride or walk is Uncle Kracker, Tom Petty, and Life House.

ISHow about you?

Happy Reading!

When Zoe Clearwater learns that the skull she found in an underwater cave is her missing brother, she sells her scuba diving business, Sun Trips Touring, and dedicates herself to unravelling her brother’s mysterious death.

Dane Corbin, the new owner of Sun Trips, is determined to prove to Zoe, now his employee, that he is not the womanizer he once was. But it’ll take more than profit to turn Zoe’s head.

Her investigation at a standstill, Zoe unearths letters from a secret lover among her brother’s possessions, along with plane tickets, a promise to run away to safety, and the painful realization that she’ll need Dane’s help.

As mercurial clues plunge Zoe and Dane into a life-threatening pursuit and the truth burns brighter and brighter, Zoe recognizes she needs Dane as much as her brother’s un-named lover needed him. But Dane will have to make it to safety, first.

Best Seller? Really?

SD High 1667x2500Since becoming a published author I’ve had my opinion of Best Seller status squashed. I’m not exactly sure what I thought went into becoming a best-selling author, but it had to be a big deal, right? Maybe not so much.

It turns out there are levels of best-selling status. An author can be an Amazon Best Seller, a USA Today Best Seller, or a New York Times Best Seller. (So sorry Amazon, but it goes in that order.) As long as one of an author’s books hits the top #100 (for a minute even) on one of these sites, they are a best seller for the rest of their career. Really?

What’s more disconcerting are the levels of best-selling status’ that are within the levels. An author can be a USA Today #1 Best Seller, or a New York Times International Best Seller. I’m so confused, and I’m a published author!

And then there are the authors who (understandably) streeeeeeetch this title to grab any speck of best-selling status they can get their hands on. You see, there are categories our books fall into. For example, I write romantic suspense. This means my books are weeded from all books, to fiction, to romance, to romance suspense. I recently had an author acquaintance celebrate her new best seller status because her book made it into the top #100 on Amazon in Contemporary Romantic Fiction. Oh dear.

For all of you who, like me, thought becoming a best seller was a really big deal … like Sears Tower big–I apologize. It’s still a big deal. Even if you make the top #100 at Amazon in Paranormal Contemporary Romantic Time Travel Fantasy Action Fiction. Sarcasm. Us authors take what we can get. It’s just not quite what we all thought it was. Yep. My opinion has been squashed. Squelched. Never to be the same.

RT Wolfe - Black Creek Series - Black Creek Burning - POD - AuthorUseMy first book, Black Creek Burning hit the top #100 (#53) overall on Amazon the first month it was published. It sat at the #1 spot at Barnes and Noble for 2 days (yes, 2 whole days of R.T. Wolfe doing cartwheels). Not just in romance or in suspense or in romantic suspense, but over all books in publication. Have I hit the top #100 on USA Today? On the New York Times list? No. Or should I say … not yet.

The Chameleon by Diane Burton…

The Chameleon Cover (3)I’m completely thrilled to have the lovely Diane Burton on my blog today to discuss writing a series and her latest release. It’s great to have you, Diane!

Thanks for having me here today, R.T. Since we both write series, I thought that would be a good topic.


Have you ever been on a vacation and didn’t want to leave the people and/or the location? Or have you ever gotten to the end of a book and wished it didn’t end there? Did you ever wish you could find out what came next?

That often happens to me. I love epilogues, you know, the “five years later” when you find out how the main characters managed reality. Sometimes, there are secondary characters who are so compelling I hope the writer will give them their own story(s). That often happens when I write. For months (sometimes years), I’m caught up in a world I’ve created with people I’ve grown to know and love and I don’t want to leave. I want to stay and see what happens next.

As I wrote The Pilot, I knew I wanted to write a series about strong women on the frontier of space. I envisioned the wild, wild west where only the strong survived. I wrote mini-plots about the women who would be featured in each book. What I didn’t know were the men. After The Pilot was released, a friend asked (no, she demanded LOL) to know when Laning and Quin would have their stories. While Quin’s story has to wait (sorry, no spoilers), I knew Laning would be a good foil for Jileena, a smart, savvy fem who pretends to be a vacuous twit—the heroine in The Chameleon. You’ll see his conflict in the excerpt below.

In the Outer Rim series, each book is complete within itself. Some characters appear, or are referred to, in each of the books, but the books can be read in any order.

Diane Burton

Blurb for The Chameleon (An Outer Rim Novel: Book 2):

Legally Blond meets Mata Hari

Socialite Jileena Winslott has perfected the image of the spoiled, rich, bubble-headed daughter of an industrial magnate. In reality, she’s a smart, savvy aide to her father in social situations where she is his eyes and ears. She yearns to be her true self and run the family business. When her father sends her on a covert mission to the Outer Rim, she has the chance to prove herself. Big problem. He insists she take along a fake fiancé—the man she’s secretly loved for years.

Security Officer Laning Servary has better things to do than babysit a spoiled rich girl on a tour of the Frontier. If he refuses, he can kiss his career good-by. Then Jileena’s father sweetens the pot. If Laning keeps her safe, his family will receive the land they share-crop. He can’t refuse.

In the close quarters of her ship, Laning and Jileena discover they aren’t who they seem. Pirates, weather, and her recklessness threaten to derail the mission. As Laning and Jileena revise their impressions of each other, they’ll have to make hard choices about their goals. Can their budding love survive?

Excerpt from The Chameleon:

“Commander Servary, your assignment is to escort Baby Winslott on a sightseeing tour of the Outer Rim.”

Security Officer Laning Servary clenched his teeth so hard his jaw ached. By the Matriarch’s left tit, that was why he’d been recalled from the Rim to Coalition HQ? To be a glorified tour guide? A babysitter? He thanked the Exalted One that he was standing, his feet wide apart with his hands clasped behind his back. Otherwise, he might have wrapped them around Chief Vanutial’s neck and throttled him.

“Baby, sir?” Laning knew full well who Baby was. He’d met her Royal Pain-in-the-Ass at a social function last year.

“Chief Representative Winslott’s daughter wants to visit the Frontier. Her father insists you protect her.” The man’s eyes narrowed. “She has some damn fool notion about having an adventure. Apparently, those damn fool pioneers have been filling her head with damn fool ideas.”

“But, sir, I have an assignment—”

“Servary, your assignment is what I say it is,” Vanutial boomed, shattering the air in the spacious office much the same as his Volpian Cruiser did when shooting through the atmosphere.

Laning cleared his throat and snapped to attention. “Yes, sir.”

“At ease, Commander, at ease. By Lexol’s Fire, I need you out there patrolling Malcor Sector for smugglers and other miscreants. And keeping that gangster Hallart out of your sector. Not escorting some spoiled rich girl who wants a damn fool adventure.” Chief Vanutia’s voice rose.

Although he agreed, Laning knew enough to keep his mouth shut.

“Winslott insisted on you specifically. Although I don’t know why after that fiasco with President—ex-President—Filana’s son. I still can’t believe she was in Hallart’s pocket. The Divine One only knows how far his influence extends.” Chief Vanutial blew out a breath. “Never mind that. Screw this up, Servary, and your next assignment won’t be a cushy sightseeing tour. You’ll be swabbing decks on a garbage scow.”
