As usual, I have a writerly traffic jam happening very soon. It seems like the gods have decreed that when I have one release, it makes sense to have two! So look forward to two new releases from me at the end of May, beginning of June.
First, hold on to your hats. I’m in the Footsteps in the Dark Anthology with LB Gregg, Nicole Kimberling, Josh Lanyon, Dal MacLean, Meg Perry, C.S. Poe, and S.C. Wynne. This is a group of writers that I absolutely adore! My entry in the anthology is called Pepper the Crime Lab. It’s a novella length story–the planned prequel for a series of cozy mysteries.
Hope you like it! The characters are only getting to know one another in this prequel, so it has a happily for now ending. But they’ll be falling more deeply in love and solving mysteries in the future!
The powers that be have decreed that Lonnie and Pepper will be arriving around May 31, so put that on your calendars! Footsteps is not available for preorder yet, but as soon as it is, I’ll link you to this very exciting opportunity to have a little something, something from some of my VERY FAVORITE m/m mystery romance writers (and me.) It will be available in ebook, print, and eventually audio!
My next release will be Three Vlog Night, the third book in the loosely-related (and when I say loosely, I mean each can be read as a standalone) Plummet To Soar series. Ajax Fairchild will arrive in your kindle on June 4th if you pre-order, HERE
Three Vlog Night
A plummet To Soar Story…
Ajax Fairchild’s online alter ego has caused him trouble before, but never like this. After multiple death threats, his loaded parents decide he needs an enforced digital vacation and the best bodyguard money can buy.
That would be Dmytro Kolisnychenko, former soldier, former hired muscle for the Ukrainian mob—until he lost his happy home life to an enemy with a homemade bomb. Now he wants only two things: to spend every precious second he can with his daughters, and to provide for them by protecting people who can’t protect themselves—even entitled little asshats like Ajax Fairchild.
But Ajax doesn’t fit into the spoiled little rich kid box as neatly as Dmytro would like. Dmytro doesn’t have time for a romantic dalliance, and Ajax is a client, albeit one with unexpected depths. With one coincidence after another driving them to the sleepy seaside town of St. Nacho’s and away from their planned safe house, they grow to trust each other and find that love follows trust. Now they must learn where the threat to Ajax is coming from and neutralize it… before it’s too late for their happily ever after.
