On December 12, 2019 it was announced that Lisa Regan had sold over 1 million copies in her Detective Josie Quinn series and that she had also signed a new 8 book deal with her publisher, Bookouture for a total of 20 books. 

From Lisa's Facebook feed: 

It was five a.m. on November 20th and I was awake (reluctantly) because Mr. Phillip was sick. My phone started blowing up with messages from the incredible family at my publisher, Bookouture, letting me know that the Josie Quinn series had hit one million copies in sales. Message after message of congratulations poured in from my publisher. There I am, at five in the morning, cleaning up dog puke, as one does, and bawling my eyes out because I never, ever, ever, not one time, in my wildest imagination, thought I would ever hit such a milestone. So THANK YOU to everyone of you who have read or bought one of my books and/or have spread the word, left a review, recommended my work, or been a staunch cheerleader! You are the best! It means the world to me. Shortly after that, I inked a new 8 book contract with Bookouture because, frankly, there is nowhere else I would rather be. We have been celebrating in secret for the last two weeks and I am glad the news is out finally! These things don't happen without some pretty amazing people in your corner, and I am blessed and grateful to have the absolute best publishing family, best readers, best friends and family, and the best writing colleagues. You guys make this worth it!
Also, Mr. Phillip says if I am going to write 8 more books, he will require many more sweet potatoes and probably a new hedgehog.
