Jump Cut: Formal Cover Reveal

Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you’re looking forward to this year. I tend to do better in even years than odd… do you have a pattern like that? If so, which years are better for you?

I’m especially excited about this year, because, JUMP CUT, the 1st Ellie Foreman mystery/thriller in 10 years is coming out March 1. And to celebrate, I’m having a formal “Cover Reveal” tomorrow on Goodreads here. However, there is ALSO a simultaneous cover reveal on several blogs via Goddess Fish Promotions. You can see which blogs are sponsoring it here.

And what would a celebration be without prizes? Here they are: If you’re a Goodreads reader, and you add JUMP CUT to your TBR list and send me an email, I’ll enter you in a drawing for a signed print copy, which, if you win, will arrive before the March 1 release date.

And if you’d like to win a $50 Amazon (or other retailer) Gift Card, enter the Rafflecopter on blogs listed by Goddess Fish, which, as I mentioned, goes live tomorrow as well.

What the book is about:

Chicago video producer Ellie Foreman  is producing a video for the giant consumer airline manufacturer and defense contractor, Delcroft Aviation. Half way through production, she is fired. In an effort to find out why, Ellie is soon entangled in a web of espionage, drones, surveillance, file encryption, and Chinese spies… all of which threaten those she holds dear. Click here for more.

 Jump Cut has already received some fabulous reviews:

From spies to drones and hackers, Jump Cut is a heart-stopping tale of corporate espionage that will have you snapping on your seatbelt. The tangled web of international intrigue is riveting. Hellmann is a renowned master of suspense, and her great talent shows in the story’s many rich characters, the beautifully honed paragraphs, and the sweep of her provocative story. A keeper!”
Gayle Lynds, New York Times best-selling author of The Assassins

“With spooks, spies, sudden death and double-crosses, Jump Cut hits all the right notes for a top-notch action thriller. Once again Ellie Foreman is a thoroughly likeable real-world heroine, fiercely protective of those she loves, thrown in at the deep end and swimming for her life. Don’t miss it!”
Zoë Sharp, author of the Charlie Fox series and The Blood Whisperer

“Welcome back Ellie Foreman! Jump Cut rockets to a stunning but thrilling climax… Another winner from the standout Chicago novelist Libby Hellmann.”
Paul Levine, author of Bum Rap

“After a long hiatus, Hellmann returns to her Chicago-based sleuth with a chilling tale that may be all too close to the truth.”
Kirkus Reviews

Btw, I’d love you to pre-order Jump Cut. Pre-orders help a book no end. To thank you for pre-ordering, you’ll only pay 99¢ during the first week of release. Promise. Just ignore the list price if it shows more — I will lower the price before release day.

Again, to pre-order, go here: It’s widely available. Thanks.

And now… (drum roll, please)… here’s the cover!
