After many, many long hard years of working toward publication, I am absolutely delighted to announce that my agent, Steve Laube received an offer that we accepted from from Abingdon Press via acquiring editor, Barbara Scott, for my espionage thriller, Dead Reckoning. My book will appear in stores March 2010 (yes, it feels like eons to me, too! LOL).
Here is the official announcement my dear friend and twin Dineen Miller sent to the ACFW e-loop:

It is with GREAT pleasure and honor that I announce my wonderful best friend (and twin!) and first-time author, Ronie Kendig, has been contracted by Abingdon Press for her espionage thriller, Dead Reckoning, scheduled for release March 2010. Deal negotiated by agent extraordinaire, Steve Laube.
Private congrats are most welcome to Ronie's e-mail address at where first baby and mother are resting quite nicely in an peaceful bliss long overdue. Proud Auntie Robin Miller is gloating on the sidelines. ;-) And little sister Sara Mills is jumping up and down with glee.
For more info on this majorly cool story, check out Ronie's website at
Dead Reckoning...Underwater archeologist Shiloh Blake is consumed with passion for the water and angry at the injustices of life. Her first large-scale dig traps her in the middle of an international meltdown and forces her to flee for her life. When she spots a man trailing her, she questions who he is and how he's always one step ahead of her.
Former Green Beret Reece Jaxon now serves his country as a covert operative. His mission is entangled by the beguiling Shiloh Blake as he hunts down the source to a dead drop in the Arabian Sea.
The only way to prevent a nuclear disaster is to join forces with Reece. But will Shiloh violate her vow to never become a spy like her father? Will they put aside their differences to end this nightmare?
