I mentioned in my previous post that I’ve been slowly working away on the next book in my series. Well, we officially have a title for the book: RIOT LOAD and it will be shooting your way in Spring of 2016.
I also mentioned I was planning some events for the launch of MURDER BOY. And boy oh boy has that worked out. We’ve actually bumped up the publication date of the book to March 31st to take advantage of some great opportunities. The first leg of my tour will be launching even before the book is officially out! I’ll be starting at the Poisoned Pen Bookstore in Scottsdale, Arizona on March 19 signing with Owen Laukkanan and David Joy. I’ve known Owen for a while and attended a couple of his signing but I’ve never met David and I’m looking forward to it. A fun side note to this: I’ll be getting in the night before and I’m thinking of going to the Dennis Lehane signing at PP that night to get a redo for the last time I met Dennis and creeped him out.
The next night I’ll be over in Houston at Murder by the Book signing again with Owen and David, but also with special guest Duane Swierczynski. I’ve nattered on here a lot about how Duane was a big inspiration for me moving away from PI novels into the sort of crazy fun crime novels like MURDER BOY, so signing with him is a great treat. Have a look at my Appearances page for other cool events I have lined up.
And speaking of MURDER BOY, it’s getting more real by the day. I’ve seen page proofs and now it’s up on Edelweiss for those who are interested in grabbing a digital copy for review. If you want a digital review copy and you’re having trouble, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll see if I can help. If you want a print copy, you’ll have to wait just a bit longer.
