What a Journey

What a journey this has been! I started research almost two years ago for a new contemporary crime series set in New Mexico, finished the first draft of The 9th Hour last spring, had a fabulous handful of authors who carefully proofread and edited it, and the book is now available online at all major bookstores (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes etc).

the-9th-hourThe 9th Hour and Night Eyes will also be available from next week in the local Albuquerque Barnes & Noble Bookstore, 3701-A Ellison Rd NW, Albuquerque, NM 87114 – Phone (505) 792-4234. You will find paperbacks under the Local Author Section.

The 9th Hour is occasionally discounted online for a short time only (eBook 99c and $13 for a paperback). So keep your eyes peeled for special prices. Feel free to sign up here for my occasional newsletter for first hand news and updates.

We also had a very successful Goodreads Giveaway this month. Thank you to all those who entered. Out of over 1,000 entrants, three winners received a personally signed first edition paperback.

A Gift for the Launch of Night Eyes

As a thank you for all your help with the launch of Night Eyes, I have just finished signing bookmarks and three paperbacks of the second in the Detective Temeke Series published in March 2016. For those who would like to enter to receive a copy, feel free to sign up for our occasional newsletter. CLICK HERE. The winners will be picked at random and notified by email.

I’ve had several requests for signed books. For those of you who purchased a book online or at any local bookstore, I will be sending out invitations for my next book signing/bookseller’s event and I will be happy to sign it for you there. The best way to keep updated with author events is to visit the following websites:

Book Updates

67,000 words into the third book in the series. Still throwing around titles but we think we’ve settled on Past Rites.  Just turning the corner and sliding slowly on the downward slope. Tying up the plot and closing arguments before the finale. Still a little behind schedule since the passing of my wonderful Mum last weekend. I am so grateful for the safe and loving home she gave us, and a father who gave me his love of language and books.

Reviews (Please!)

After you read The 9th Hour, Night Eyes and Past Rites (coming soon!) please take a moment to post your honest review on Amazon and Goodreads. One or two sentences would be wonderful and a star rating. Your review is a great gift and means so much. Thank you for coming on this newest adventure with me.

These stories are for you.

  1. Can I just say what a comfort to discover someone that
    really knows what they are discussing on the internet.
    You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    A lot more people must look at this and understand this
    side of the story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular since you most certainly have
    the gift.
