I hope you had a happy holiday, whichever one you celebrate. Nothing like reading a good book to recover, right?
I'm awaiting the proof copy of Sherlock Returns to arrive. If everything is as it should be, then print copies of the book should be available a couple days before Christmas. The ebook versions will go on sale as soon as I'm done checking the formatting, hopefully in the next few days. I'm so excited!
If you need something to tide you over, don't forget about the holiday themed shorts over on the Extras page. Keep an eye on the Facebook page, and here of course, for more updates!
Happy Thanksgiving from my part of the world! In honor of the occasion, the first two books are half off as ebooks this over on Smashwords, for the whole weekend! There's also a short holiday story over on the Extras page.
I'm very thankful for each and every person who has given my stories a chance, and enjoyed getting to know these characters as much as I have. I'm also remarkably grateful to an old friend of mine, Travis Perkins, who has illustrated the cover of each book in the series. With great pleasure, I present the cover of book three!
Being the avid fan of Halloween that I am, I wrote a case for Sherlock a while back that takes place at a costume party. It's completely independent of the books, though it probably helps if you've read book one I guess. And yes, the blatant references to a particular board game are entirely intentional.
And after you're done at the costume party, why not go trick or treating with the Irregulars?
Here are the chapter titles of Sherlock Returns to whet your appetite:
The Murder of Adrian Rolands
The Almandine Drive Affair
The Story with the Snake
Corporation vs Colony
The Mayor’s Letters
Rescue from a Brothel
Another portion of chapter 1 is available, and I'll hopefully have a release date to announce before the end of the month.
I apologize for the long delay in updates, but summer is coming to a close, and I am back in the writing chair. The end of book three Sherlock Returns is still causing me a bit of grief, but I'm getting there. At any rate, there's another bit of teaser posted, as well as a short little scene for the Irregulars after the end of Of Jackals and Crusaders. I'll be back with more!
Book Three, Sherlock Returns, is moving forward, though slowly (I'll blame the summer heat, because I can). To tempt your taste buds, there's another tidbit from the first chapter of Book Three here, and if you haven't checked out the Extras page recently, be sure to drop by and say hello to the Irregular Jeni, and check out some of the scenes from Sherlock's point of view or read a couple holiday themed tales.
