"Naked Sushi" is a Cosmo Red Hot Read from Harlequin

"Naked Sushi"  cover coming soon.
I thought this illo had a "Bond Girl" feel to it.
I have some exciting news and I can't wait to share it with you!!

My novella, NAKED SUSHI, is a Cosmo Red Hot Read from Harlequin.

I'm still pinching myself that my wise-cracking, computer-hacking, sex-starved heroine, Pepper O'Malley, will be a Cosmo Girl.

Here's a preview:

Amateur spy PEPPER O’MALLEY gets more than she bargained for when she discovers her sleazy boss is hiding corporate secrets.

She gets fired.

Was it her fault she got caught in the copy room with her pants down with a hunky thief? 


The only way Pepper can get her job back is to become a naked sushi model and spy on her ex-boss.

She’s thrown into a world of corporate espionage she never imagined…

So how did I come up with this sassy heroine?

Pepper is a lot like me. I wrote a column for Microtimes magazine called "Sweet Savage Byte," where I looked at the world of technology from a female pov. This didn't always go over well with male programmers...though I did meet a bunch of great guys at the magazine.

Like Pepper, I also worked for a video game company, wrote code, and worked with audio/video. I also worked for Japanese companies and wrote a book called "The Japanese Art of Sex," which was featured on Playboy TV.

I was thrilled when Harlequin added "Naked Sushi" to this exciting new series.

Sylvia Day is the launch author for the series with "Afterburn" in August 2013.

"Naked Sushi" is scheduled for October 2013.

More to come about my exciting new venture in the upcoming weeks!

Thanks, Wynter! I'm thrilled to be involved with this new series with Harlequin and Cosmo.

As my amateur spy heroine, Pepper O'Malley, says, Nobody does it better...

Thanks for stopping by, Linda -- what I posted is a mock-up cover that I did using art from www.dreamstime.com (my favorite site for photos and art -- reasonably priced, too!).

No cover yet...but when I have one, I'll be sure it post it right here first!!
