NCIS #2 Cover


My editor, Jan Stob, at Tyndale books just sent me the cover proof for the second NCIS cover. It'll be out the first part of next year.

I wanted to share. If you look at the background, you'll see art department worked in a map behind them. I think it's great!

I was so happy to see your Book 2 of the NCIS series was coming out. As in your Apocalypse Military series, you really hit the heart and soul of your characters. Obviously, because of your strong family ties, you understand the importance of a comrade in arms. As in the Rangers, we never leave a fallen comrade. Your NCIS agents have that same bond -- one of their own has been killed and they won't rest until they get to the bottom of it. Terrorism, drugs, etc., it's all a part of our lives now and we need to be alert and ready to expect the worse, especially when it comes to nuclear war. Love your writing. We are blessed to have your writings and look forward to many future hours of great reading. I'm prayer Tyndall with allow the Military Series (Apocalypse) to continue. We are very upset they stopped it. God bless you and your family.

Thanks for writing, Lindy. It's good to know people are finding and enjoying the books.

And thank you for your good words. Sometimes a writer just doesn't know if he's connecting with the readers. Messages like yours help.

Family is important to me. Always has been.

You're right about the world, of course. Those things are here. We have to acknowledge them so that we can teach our children about them.

I hope Goose and Megan's story will continue, but we'll see. For the moment, we have the NCIS.

I am half way through Paid in Blood and am VERY excited there will be another book coming up. Please keep them coming as fast as your little fingers can type.

I am a HUGE CSI fanatic. SO love your books.

second one. I was so involved in the first NCIS novel that I found myself thinking of people in my life that were representative of your characters. With all the religious conflict and tension in the world, it is nice to read a book that isn't catastrophizing or minimizing global issues. I can't wait to see how this series turns out.

I just finished Paid In Blood and was looking online for information about when you were releasing Novel #2 I am really looking forward to the second one* (my computer was being weird and I lost the intro to my comment. Sorry about that)

Thanks, Missy! Hopefully the second book will thrill you too.

I'm working on one for the summer. It will be about Remy, who has a lot of guilt he's carrying around.
