Finally, stuff is starting to happen!
One week from today, the Footsteps in the Dark anthology of gay mystery/romance will be released. I should have pre-order links soon. Here’s the cover for it:
Release date May 31!
Here’s the playlist for the anthology, featured on Josh’s blog today:

And here’s a couple of teasers for my novella that’s included in the anthology. It’s called Twelve Seconds.
A mysterious phone call, a missing executive, and an exploding rocket throw space reporter Justin Harris and Air Force Special Agent Greg Marcotte into an investigation that will change their lives…if it doesn’t kill them first.
Created by the VERY talented Dianne Theis of Lyrical Lines.
I am super excited for this! I never thought I’d have the opportunity to be included with a lineup of authors like these. Also, Twelve Seconds is the first in a new series, The Space Coast Mysteries, featuring the further adventures of Justin and Greg.
I think you’ll like these guys.
No worries; the next Jamie Brodie book is also coming soon. More on that later.
This is the first line of my novella, Twelve Seconds, which will be part of the Footsteps in the Dark anthology of m/m mystery, coming in early May. Justin Harris is a space reporter for a fictional newspaper syndicate, based in Cocoa Beach, FL; Greg Marcotte is a Special Agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations. They meet in the aftermath of a failed rocket launch (i.e., explosion) at Cape Canaveral.
I had so much fun writing this! It’s nice to write something that takes place in my own stomping grounds. (Although I spent some time in Jamie Brodie’s stomping grounds last week. More on that later.) I’ll eventually release this as a standalone, as I intend to build a new series around these two.
The anthology includes some of my favorite authors, and a couple that will be new to me. I personally can’t WAIT to read it!

Once again, Josh is turning over a chunk of her yearly Advent Calendar blog to other writers and artists. I wrote a story featuring Jamie and Liz at the reference desk, waiting out the end of the semester, when they encounter one of Josh’s characters from the Adrien English Mysteries.
You can find it here. Enjoy!!
Josh Lanyon has a regular feature on her blog called Author! Author! Every month she interviews a different m/m mystery or romance writer – and this month I’m the lucky interviewee! You can read it here.
I’ve been neglecting Jamie and Pete for the past week or so, thanks to this unlovely lady:
But my house is undamaged and the power is back. So it’s back to work for me!

This weekend – even as we speak! – the Josh Lanyon Fan Page is throwing a launch party for Josh’s new book, The Monet Murders, due out next week. Josh has been incredibly gracious and invited several other authors to guest host the party for an hour – including little ol’ me!
The party is at this address: https://www.facebook.com/events/378201799240646/
Formal wear not required. I may still be in my pajamas. 😀
I’ll be hosting from 2:00-3:00 pm, Eastern Daylight Time, tomorrow afternoon. I’ll talk about Jamie and Pete, I’ll post a new excerpt from Promoted to Death, and I’m giving away two books!
I’m SO excited. I hope you can join me! If you’re a fan of Josh’s as well, head on over there now. They’re giving away all kinds of stuff!

I am SO thrilled to be part of Josh Lanyon’s annual Advent calendar on her Just Joshin’ blog this year. This story started with a question in my mind – what might have happened to Kate Keegan after Jake Riordan left her for Adrien English in Josh’s book The Dark Tide?
