Plus -- and this was a major consideration -- I was looking for a story, a voice, that I thought would pair naturally with my own. So when Jordan was revealed as the author of Body Art, I had to laugh. Amazon has a habit of pairing our work together. Apparently Amazon knew something no one else did.
Although I have to say I've read a couple of books in Jordan's PsyCop series, and I enjoyed them very much.
Anyway, congratulations to Jordan (who you may know here on LJ as jordan_c_price ). I'm looking forward to a long and successful new partnership.
Also I wanted to express my sincere thanks to all who entered the Wanted contest. Although I didn't get to see most of the entries, I know the editors were pleased with the broad selection of talent. I was pleased to hear we got such a great turn out of stories.
