Time Travel. Really.

Well, maybe not time travel, but through some kind of publishing magic, I have an advance copy of my December release to give away to one you faithful W&W blog followers. The book is Without Justice, a romantic suspense novel, and here’s the skinny:

Without Justice 300 DPICade Kelly’s life revolved around her legal career until the day she testified against the largest crime family in Chicago. Now in witness protection, she’s working hard to adjust to a life devoid of the things she used to be passionate about. When she meets the smart and beautiful Emily Sinclair, Cade feels hopeful about her new life, but she learns no matter who she pretends to be, she can’t deny the pull of her past.

Emily Sinclair is settling into her role as district attorney and she’s ready to find a love interest to share in her success. Cade Kelly captivates her from the moment they meet, but she discovers that despite their undeniable attraction, Cade will challenge her at every turn. What will happen when Emily learns Cade isn’t who she thought she was, and worse, when they wind up on opposite sides in Emily’s first big case?

So, let’s play a game: if you had to go into the Witness Protection Program and got to choose a new career, what would it be? Comment with your answer by Friday, November 4th, and I’ll draw a name for an advanced copy of Without Justice (ebook only outside the US).

  1. Thinking about a new career – I guess I’d like to be a librarian. No big responsibilities, talking with people just about what I love – books. While being an introvert, I’m good in seeing into people, so I can guess quite well what anyone would like to read.

  2. I would love to work with animals. Instead I worked with numbers. But in reality numbers paid better and let me retire comfortably. But working with animals would’ve been more fun.

  3. So many fun things to choose- professor because I love teaching, actress because it’s my favorite hobby, but the best would be “professional student” :). Imagine being able to go to school every day – I’d get degrees in so many fun things.

  4. A silent partner in a lucrative manufacturing business….no major responsibilities except to collect my share of the profits. 🙂

  5. I would copy edit books instead of for a trade association, a pharmacy college, or a newspaper syndicate. Not only could I live in a secluded location, but I would enjoy it. In fact, I plan to retire soon and do just that without the necessity of being in a witness protection program.

  6. Oh my. That is a very difficult question. I am currently a graphic artist, and love what I do. But when I was younger, there were several career paths that I wanted to follow. I had thought about being a veterinarian because I love and understand animals, I had thought to go into the medical field because I find human physiology very fascinating, I had thought to be an architect to follow in my father’s footsteps. I think at this point in my life, I would have to do something with animals. Maybe a vet tech, or work at an animal shelter.

  7. I worked in a library and it was tough physical work and not much about books so I’d like to own a second hand bookshop but have enough of a private income that it didn’t matter if I sold anything….

  8. Well since we can play pretend and be anything I’d be a police detective. Hopefully in my new pretend life I wouldn’t have a medical condition that prevents me from doing that job in my real life.

  9. I would be an accountant. I love numbers and balancing everything. Not sure why I did not think of it when I was in school….

  10. If I had to go into witness protection and choose a new career, I’d choose to retire instead. I’ve done enough work in my lifetime. I’d do little, odd jobs if I really needed money but I’d prefer to just finally relax. It’s a good cover if you think about it. Move to a new area and say you always wanted to live there when you retired!

  11. If I had to pick a new career I would choose what I really wish I was now. I want to be a social worker working for child protection services to help kids who are being mistreated or neglected and can’t speak for themselves. I want to make a difference in their lives.

  12. If I had to pick another career in witness protection…….I would go back to Juvenile Probation. Especially if in a big city. I think gay, lesbian, and trans kids need to someone like them. Someone who wants nothing more than to help them.

  13. Well, if I were in Witness Protection I wouldn’t want to do anything that put me in the public eye. I would probably hide out in a convent (like Whoopi Goldberg did in Sister Act), sing a bit in the church choir, hang out in the local biker bar with my fellow nuns, and try my best not to piss-off the Reverend Mother.

  14. Although I know I have no talent for it, I think I’d like to be a hair dresser. You get to talk to people all day and help make them feel better about themselves. Although it would have to be in a small salon with no stress to push clients through in record time, I’d like them to share coffee with me and a good Ol’ chin wag.
