A week and a half into the new year, and I wanted to take a moment to thank all of my readers for their support. I hope you've had as nice a start to your year as I have, and that the trend continues through the year. Thank you, again, for being with me on this adventure.
I hope all my readers have a wonderful winter holiday, whichever one you celebrate. There are a surprising number of Sherlockian short stories written that take place this time of year; I highly recommend "Death in the Midnight Hour" by James Powell, found in the anthology Sherlock Holmes Through Time and Space. There's also the anthology Holmes for the Holidays, and its sequel More Holmes for the Holidays.
For or my own small part, there's a short story on the Extras page featuring the Irregulars and a routine job on a winter night, that turns out to be not so routine at all.

Ladies, gentlemen, and other, may I present to you the cover art for book two of The Adventures of Watts and Sherlock: Of Jackals and Crusaders!
The artist is once again Travis Perkins, who designed the cover of The R.X. Problem, and I love it.
Take a look!
As we reach the end of October, that means Halloween for my family. I took my son out for trick-or-treat Friday, and came up with a tiny tale imagining the event for the Irregulars. "Trick or Treat: An Irregular Tale" is over on the Extras page, and check out how Sherlock and Watts spend their Halloween in "The Costume Party Murder."
Have a safe weekend, some fun scares, and Happy Halloween!
In honor of the season, here's a stand-alone story in which Sherlock and Watts find themselves solving a murder at a costume party. It looks very similar to a certain popular detective game. What can I say, I was having fun. You can download the story as a pdf, or just read it here on the site. Head over to Extras and check out The Costume Party Murder (or just click the link.) Enjoy!
One of the lovely people at "I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere" (and a great author in his own right) has written a lovely review of The R.X. Problem! You can read it here - and if you're unfamiliar with IHOSE, it's an awesome website for all news and pop culture related to Sherlockiana. Check it out.
In other news, there's a new Irregular over on the Extras page! Meet Captain... and yes, happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!
From now through September 5th, you can purchase the ebook on Smashwords for only $2.99!
