- So you’re like a good demon?
Bringing the fun in?
Actually, I make no promises about my evil authorly nature, because it is my job to do things like torture characters. In fact, I’m currently rubbing my hands together with glee over certain opportunities in my current WIP (Kodiak Chained, for my sentinel series in the Nocturne line)
(Quote not familiar? Must watch this: Once More with Feeling, the Buffy musical. All worship Joss!)
But back to the bringing in the fun. Because I’m shameless, I’m giving away short fiction with newsletter sign-ups. Yes, you heard me. Shameless.
The catch is only that I will be really unhappy with people who sign up for the freebie and then ditch me. Or worse, who don’t bother to ditch me but put me in a spam folder, which with some services registers as a spam complaint, which makes MailChimp really unhappy with me, which gets me suspended or makes me jump through hoops to Not Get Suspended. So anyone who’ll do those things should stay away. Really.
Anyway, the newsletter goes out occasionally (when I have, you know…news!) and it’s a handy way to see what’s happening with the books as I get the rest of the backlist up and publish new stuff.
Fun, part two, AKA speaking of backlist…
Foxacre Press is about to release a new version of Nose For Trouble. New in that it has witty introductory commentary from Yrs Trly, plus a bit of spit and polish of the sort that will blend with any previous readings, but just adds a bit of shine. It’ll be out in trade paperback and HOORAY! E-Book!
Also, you might recognize that cover dog. Yup, this is my first publisher cover art, front and back.
Anxious to get away from the pressures of the east coast and into a climate where his trauma-induced asthma isn’t a daily challenge, Dale Kindall, DVM, hauls his baggage and his young Beagle to a vet clinic in the high desert. He arrives to a clinic populated by an ecccentric staff, and a community abuzz about a recent murder.
The buzz gets even louder when Dale himself stumbles across a second victim on his very first day at the clinic: a man drowned in his own drought-dusty backyard.
Before much longer it becomes evident that Dale, Sully, and the clinic are all at risk, and Dale’s fledgling relationship with a local colleague turns serious in more ways than one as trouble closes in on them all…
