Nothing but the Truth

One of the coolest things about writing legal dramas is the plethora of legalese I get to choose from to use as titles for books. I particulary love “nothing but the truth” (from the oath taken by witnesses at trial), because it a complete misnomer. At trial, witnesses only get to answer the questions they are asked. The result is often a half-told tale, true in its parts, but the whole doesn’t always add up to a completely truthful version of the events.

In my fourth novel, Nothing but the Truth (January 2011 release, available for preorder now), I explore the themes of truth v. lies, right v. wrong, and women loving women  – it is a romance after all. AND, because no blog from me would be complete with out the V word  – that’s video, folks – here’s a shiny, polished version of my usual vlogging (thanks to the women of Zoom ‘n Dog Video):

    Carsen – looking forward to the book! The only thing about you and videos is that you’re so shy. LOL! This book is going on my list.
