Valentine Countdown Blitz With Rafflecopter Giveaway Day 10


An award-winning author, Jordan McCollum can’t resist a
story where good defeats evil and true love conquers all. She writes stories
about love, lies, secrets and sometimes spies, and she helps writers craft
their fiction to make their stories and their prose more engaging. 
All four of
the novels in her Spy Another Day series were named finalists in the Whitney
Awards, a juried prize. Spy by Night is a prequel to the other novels in the

“After watching her parents’ marriage crash and burn,
CIA operative Talia Reynolds doesn’t believe in “happily ever afters.” Besides,
her job entails eighty-hour weeks, juggling a dozen covers and disguises, and
tracking down a dangerous Russian spy ring. She hardly has time for romantic
entanglements, even if she could let her guard down enough to get close to
anyone. But all the rules she lives by could be broken when she meets aerospace
engineer Danny Fluker.
Danny moved to Canada for a great job — and a chance to
start over after a bad breakup. Dating definitely isn’t in his plans . . .
until beautiful and enigmatic Talia throws a perfect storm right in his flight
path. When he catches a glimpse of the real woman behind her façade, he has to
get to know her better.
Talia has to find a Russian spymaster before he figures out
she’s not who she claims, and failing to keep her two lives separate in the
process could mean the death of more than just her budding relationship. Danny
has to decide if a future with Talia — and facing the past — is worth the risk
of getting hurt again. If they can break through the barriers keeping them
apart (and avoid a major international catastrophe), they just might have a
chance at being happy together.”

Q&A With The Author:
1. Tell us about things you enjoy — what you do for fun or personal
satisfaction besides writing?
Besides . . . writing? I don’t understand the question 😉 . Writing
really is my favorite. I also like to read, knit and make music.
2. What is the thing you struggle with the most while writing? And how
do you defeat it?
Probably self-doubt. I try to channel it into a drive to make my story
3. What are your future projects?
I’m working on the third book in my Saints & Spies series (different
series than Spy by Night) as well as a contemporary YA novel.
4. What is the “message” of your writing? 
I believe that fiction can entertain and change lives.
I believe in real characters who grow and change, and that they can help us
become better people, too. I want to make the world a brighter place one story
at a time. 
5. Are your characters/stories/scenes, etc. based on anything in real
The setting of the Spy Another Day series was inspired by a vacation I
took to Ottawa as a teenager. My contemporary YA was inspired by a true story
(but isn’t that story) about an excellent mountaineer who died while climbing.
And then of course everything from expressions to phrases to personalities of
people I’ve known shows up in my characters! (If someone is blinking in a way
that sends a message? That’s me. I have a whole blink language.) 
6. Have you done anything writing-related, besides actually writing your
books, that seemed to get a lot of positive response? Something that encouraged
I’ve presented classes on writing craft at several writing conferences.
The highlight of these was being the keynote speaker at the American Night
Writers’ Northwest Writers Retreat at a beautiful spot on the Washington coast!
