Blurb for "One Shot."

The rough draft of "One Shot" is currently stashed under my bed and shall remain there for the next few weeks. I torture my stories this way so that I can get some distance from them before I sit down to revise.

In the meantime, here's a blurb for the story, originally posted on my newsletter (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rowan_mcbride/) on March 15th:

Nick Carlyle understands the intricacies of his job better than anyone. He lives to crunch those numbers and his skills are valued throughout the company. If his personal life might be lacking, he doesn't notice, especially whenever he steals a harmless glance or two at Riley Jameson's tight body.

When a universal flu shot is developed, it's hailed as a miracle, and rightly so. But the seemingly harmless side-effects begin to change the world, warping the statistics that Nick's always used to guide him through life.

No one changes as much as Riley. Suddenly the young man is bigger, stronger. He's also aggressive in ways Nick isn't prepared for, and for the first time analyzing the numbers does nothing to help the situation.

And if numbers can't help him, what can?

The blurb's also rough but... Do ya like it? :)

Haha! I'm a train wreck every time I finish a book, every time I submit a book, and every time a book is released. You have no idea because I work very hard to keep the crazy under wraps. :)

Rowan I just love your writing your one of my top 5 authors. I think it sucks I have to wait till May to get your new book though. Not only that I have to wait that long to get the phoenix wright game. @__@ The next months are going to be loooonnng. And since I have all your ebooks and both of your print books theres nothing more of yours I have to read in the meantime.
