Not many of you will remember this, but once upon a time I was a mommy blogger. I got my start in blogging by venting about my intolerable boss on an old Blogspot blog, and eventually moved up to the WordPress big leagues where I currently (happily) reside.
When I had the first of my two children, I shared pictures and tales from the new mother trenches. Doing so was a ton of fun, but when I was published for the first time I realized I’d really rather keep my children’s privacy in mind so I stopped posting baby pictures and started posting book covers, instead.
Posting book covers is as close as I come to publicly sharing photos of my progeny, and the two are not as different as you might think. For example:
- Both a child and a new novel take WAY longer to produce than you’d like.
- They both require research and intellectual flexibility.
- I’ve been sleepless with worry over the fates of both my children and my books.
- I’m inordinately proud of my kids and my books. They’re my best offerings to the world.
- They all make me laugh when I’m least expecting it.
So to that end, will you please help me welcome my newest addition? Weighing in at 832 KB and a length of 242 pages, please welcome TAKE THE BAI ROAD to the book family, born today on July 5, 2017.
What can you expect if you buy this book? Well, in this way kids and books are different because I can tell you exactly what to expect from my book whereas my kids? Giant, goofy question marks.
TAKE THE BAI ROAD puts smartass Chinese-American spy Bai Hsu on the trail of the elusive Ghost Cartel, a shadowy organization moving product through cartel-controlled Mexican trade routes. It’s his most dangerous mission to date, pitting him against warring cartels without cover, resources, or backup. It’s an assignment that will test him, make him question himself, and put him at risk of losing everything that’s ever mattered to him.
According to Kirkus Reviews, ““Mitchell’s winning tale…is constantly in motion, taking Bai from one perilous predicament to the next…Fast-paced, invigorating, and entertaining.” (Click here for the full review, it’s awesome.)
Jeff Ayers, who reviewed the book for Suspense Magazine, had this to say: “What makes this series so pleasurable to read is Bai himself, his somewhat snarky attitude and self doubt make him more than the mere superhero jumping into the chaos to save the day.”
