I believe I may have mentioned how much I love a Jules Cassidy (a character from Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooter series). :o) Everybody has a supporting character or two that they love and want to see more of, eventually in his or her own book...well, Jules is one of mine!
Anywho, in Suz's most recent newletter, she had the cover flap copy for her next book "Force of Nature" - coming to a bookstore near you, Summer 2007 - and no, this isn't Jules' book...but his is next! Yeah baby!! Anyway, the important part of the cover copy:
But in the course of his investigation, he comes face to face with
Robin Chadwick, the charismatic but self-destructive, closeted movie star for
whom Jules still feels a powerful attraction. Robin's in town promoting his
latest film --
And a bit more:
With Robin and Jules's help, Ric and Annie (the heroine and hero)
are soon entrenched inside Burns's organization,
surrounded by killers who may already have executed an FBI
infiltrator. Before long they realize that many more lives than just their own
will be at stake if they make a false move. As the heat rises, so do the
risks they're willing to take -- in the line of duty, for the sake of loyalty, and
in the name of something that runs even deeper.
So, not only do Jules and Robin meet up face to face BUT they work together on the investigation! WOOT!! And Suz has hinted pretty heavily that Jules' book will be next...however she manages to get it out. She has said that her publisher is open and supportive of Jules having a book of his own but we'll see when the time comes. I hope she's right...but that's a topic for another day.
So, if you're a Suz fan and haven't signed up for her newsletter go on over to the website (yes, it needs revamping...but I'd rather she write than wrestle with webpage overhauls).
Now, my question for you, gentle readers - who is the supporting character you hope gets a story of his or her own? Cat from "The Windflower" anyone?? Oh wait, that's me again....
