I'm way excited today! Today is the release of The Mistaken which is Nancy S. Thompson's first novel. As you probably know by now, Nancy is my bestie and my writing soul mate. (She is also kind, warm and hilariously funny. She's always there with supportive words when I'm a mess--she's an all round wonderful person and I'm thrilled that her dream is finally coming true!)
HAPPY RELEASE DAY, NANCY!
I feel about as excited about this release as I do about my own. I had the pleasure and privilege of being along the journey with Nancy from her very early drafts to the mind-blowing finished product of The Mistaken. I've seen how hard she's worked and toiled to make this book as amazing as it is and to find a home for it. This is a great day!

To whet your appetite until then, here is a short synopsis:
Obsessed with revenge following the violent death of his pregnant wife, Tyler Karras pledges the woman responsible to sex-traffickers in San Francisco’s Russian Mafia. In exchange, they’ll finally let his brother, Nick, leave the business for good—with his debt wiped clean and his heart still beating. But when Tyler mistakenly targets the wrong woman, he’s forced to protect her from the very enemy he's unleashed, and the Russians are holding Nick as leverage to force Ty to complete their deal. Caught in a no-win situation, Ty must find a way to save himself, his brother, and the woman, but with the Russian Mafia, even two out of three makes for very long odds.
And here is what other authors are saying about this incredible book:
Early praise for The Mistaken:
“A deliciously slow burn that builds to a ferocious crescendo, Nancy S. Thompson's THE MISTAKEN kept me riveted until the very last page. Tyler Karras is a complex and flawed protagonist, and his redemptive journey makes him the perfect anti-hero. This psychological suspense is a standout, and I can't wait for Thompson's next book.”
~ Jennifer Hillier, author of CREEP and FREAK
“Nancy S. Thompson's debut novel, The Mistaken, is a first-rate thriller full of hair-raising twists and turns. Pursued by the police and the Russian mafia in San Francisco, brothers Tyler and Nick Karras are fascinating, fully-drawn, desperate characters. The action is non-stop. Thompson's taut, intriguing tale of revenge, mistaken identity, kidnapping and murder will keep you enthralled and entertained.”
“Fast-paced and emotionally gripping - once the ride begins, you won't stop reading until it ends." ~Alex J. Cavanaugh, author of CASSAFIRE and CASSASTAR
