Today is RIOT LOAD Launch Day!

My second novel, Riot Load, is available today at bookstores and online in ebook format. It’s so exciting to say that, my second novel. I’ve known too many authors better than me who have not been given the opportunity for a second novel so I thank Jason Pinter and all of the readers who made this possible.

I’m writing this from beautiful Gilbert, AZ where I am prepping for my event tonight at the world famous Poisoned Pen Bookstore. Thursday I’ll be heading to Houston and Murder by the Book followed on Saturday by a stop at the Seattle Mystery Bookshop. Full details of each event can be found on the appearances section of my website.

It’s always better when an author has the chance to let other folks do the cheering for a book, so I’m happy to point you to this Crimespree Magazine review from the ever delightful Kate Malmon.  My local paper, The Canton Observer did a great front page feature story about my books and my writing process that was picked up by the Detroit Free Press.

A fun side note about that story: I was in the grocery store yesterday getting allergy medicine before my flight and someone actually recognized me from that story. She has a friend who’s husband’s name is Jason Pinter and wondered if he had a new side hobby. I guess relatives think it’s so funny that over the years they’ve bought this guy the entire collected work of Jason’s novels. Small world and such.

I also had the privilege of writing a Big Idea essay for John Scalzi’s site about what happens when we achieve our dreams too early.

As fun as all of this attention is though, the main purpose is to sell books. So here are some places you can get a copy of your very own:

Once you’ve had a chance to read it I know everyone involved in producing the book would appreciate you leaving an honest review at Amazon.com or Goodreads. Thanks and happy reading!
