Prism Book Alliance® would like to thank Abigail Roux for taking the time to talk with us today.
Title: Crash & Burn (Cut & Run #9)
Author: Abigail Roux
Cover Artist: LC Chase
Genre/Sub-Genre: Contemporary, M/M Romance, Mystery
It’s been five years since Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett first worked together to solve the Tri-State murders, and time has been both harsh and kind. Engaged now, they face the challenge of planning a deeply uncertain future together. Zane is at the pinnacle of his career with one last mystery to solve, while Ty is at sea in a world where he’s no longer the tip of a spear.
There’s just one more hurdle in the way of their happy ever after: a traitor from their inner circle who threatens to burn their world to the ground.
Squeezed between the Vega cartel, an unknown mole, and too many alphabet agencies to count, Ty and Zane must gather all their strength and resources to beat the longest odds they’ve ever faced. To make it out alive, they’ll need help from every friend they’ve got. Even the friends who might betray their trust.
Hello and thank you for joining me as I bid a fond farewell to Ty and Zane on the Crash & Burn virtual tour! For the next five days, join me on my virtual stops to help me say goodbye to the Cut & Run series with cut scenes, playlists, behind the scenes looks at the process of writing this last book, and a peek at the original plan for the series and the twists and turns it took on its journey to the end.
Did I mention the prizes? I have incredible prizes for two winners; a go-bag put together by one B. Tyler Grady. Each bag has over $370 worth of goodies in it.

Entries close at midnight, Eastern Time, on April 1, and winners will be announced on April 3rd. Contest is valid worldwide.
One of the things every author has to go through is edits. So many edits. Rounds and rounds of edits. They used to be a pretty bland and boring process, and I have to say I didn’t get a lot out of them for the first couple years of my career. Fixing grammar, changing a few words here and there. But not much in the way of deviations edits, which is basically where someone trained in the art of telling authors they suck reads your book and tells you ‘this sucks’ and you go rewrite the entire thing so it makes more sense. And I certainly didn’t get any fun out of the process.
That all changed when I arrived at Riptide and began working with Rachel Haimowitz, who I loving dubbed ‘Evil Editor’ on Tumblr, and it stuck to her like evil glue. One fateful day while working on Stars & Stripes, she left me a comment that asked, ‘How did he get back on the horse?’ And I replied, “Magic.” After that, we realized that we worked together like peanut butter and jelly, and rounds of edits became something I looked forward to, something I had fun with. Eventually, we developed a shorthand, and I’m not sure how many authors and editors can communicate so deftly in language consisting solely of cat gifs.
I bring with me today some screen captures of the highlights from Crash & Burn, so you can have a glimpse into the not-so-normal life of the mythical being that has come to be known as Edit Cat.
Follow this link to find detailed info on the go-bag prizes, but make sure you comment here to enter!
