My New NCIS Novel Is Out On The Shelves!
I think this is one of the most emotionally-charged books I've ever written. The characters really came alive in this story and I ended exploring a lot of themes about being an adult child as well as a parent. This was a story that was begging to be told from the first book in the series, Paid In Blood.
While the rest of Will Coburn's NCIS team struggles to find the truth about a year-old murder that everyone thought was technically solved, medical examiner Nita gets pushed to the edge by her own self-destructive urges, the past she thought she'd buried, and feelings of love and need that she's only now starting to understand about her daughter and husband.
I loved writing this book. Hope you enjoy the read.

I'm working on a blog site for library book reviews and wanted to know if there are any copyright issues using book cover images. Do you get the images from Amazon or from the publishers. Kitty

Kitty,

Email me at mel@melodom.net. I'll be glad to help you. I get mine from the publishers.

Kitty has a good point, Mel. Do wee need permission to use them for reviews?

Ron Simpson said...

I read "Blood Evidence" in two days. I loved both NCIS books and look forward to the third.

Amazing work Mr. Odom

I look forward to more in this series! After reading these I have shared with several others and they are anxious to read more too. This is a great series.

Thanks, Donna! I'm hoping to try to release other books on Amazon if I can't get the publisher interested again. I've got a lot of readers of this series out there, and I've still got stories to tell!
