Back in Black [Book One in the McGinnis Investigations Series]
by Rhys Ford

There are eight million stories in the City of Angels but only one man can stumble upon the body of a former client while being chased by a pair of Dobermans and a deranged psycho dressed as a sheep.

That man is Cole McGinnis.

Since his last life-threatening case years ago, McGinnis has married the love of his life, Jae-Min Kim, consulted for the LAPD, and investigated cases as a private detective for hire. Yet nothing could have prepared him for the shocking discovery of a dead, grandmotherly woman at his feet and the cascade of murders that follows, even if he should have been used to it by now.

Now he’s back in the dark world of murder and intrigue where every bullet appears to have his name on it and every answer he digs up seems to only create more questions. Hired by the dead woman’s husband, McGinnis has to figure out who is behind the crime spree. As if the twisted case of a murdered grandmother isn’t complicated enough, Death is knocking on his door, and each time it opens, Death is wearing a new face, leaving McGinnis to wonder who he can actually trust.

In ABQ!

I have hit New Mexico after many days of driving. The knee had to be babied all the way over so it was short spurts across the desert and then staying at hotels. We finally made it. Checked in and had food. Then collapsed for a bit. Hooked up with Hawk and Beth for dinner… and chatting. Then more chatting then collapsing again.

We are gearing up for GRL and I’ll be posting photos and all of that in the coming week! Watch this space!

Saturday! Saturday!

Actually today’s been a pretty lazy morning except for coffee and writing. It rained a bit which is always welcome in San Diego because dudes, we need rain.

Tammy’s here from Belfast. I have to take her someplace other than the living room but circumstances have led us to be housebound for a bit. But today might be a drive or something outside. It depends on how I feel and well, how many words I get going today.

GRL is on the horizon and I’ve got a bit of swag left to pull together but we can do that quickly. Maybe tonight. 😀 Or at least get a start on things. I have promised to try to get the buttons into the cafepress shop so… that’s a thing that needs to happen 😀

I have plastic food ramen bowls with tags on it for Ramen Assassin that need to be assembled and that’ll be something good to do while I’m watching Drag Queen or we might watch the Boys or Derry Girls. Depends on how much brain we have. We also have a SHIT TON of ice cream that needs to be eaten.

So that’s where I’m at. Going to drop into a call with the Five and then… back to Kai!

Crispy Brownies

I know… it’s a strange topic but I prefer brownies that are very crispy. I also like cookies that way. No idea why. It’s just how it is.

I’m five days out from Hellion’s release and things are settling down with regards to all of that but that also means it is time to ramp up writing. Since TA Moore arrives here on Tuesday Night, I need to get into the habit of writing at least a little bit every day so we both can get our books finished.

I think that’s the worst part of being a writer… gotta sit down and get this done.

We also need to organize our swag for GRL and well, I’ve ordered all of the gluten free donuts in San Diego for Tammy. Because one needs donuts.

I’ll also plan on feeding her a lot of Mexican food.

I’m working on Kai… and well after that will probably be Luke because his story is burning in the back of my head. Kai’s a rough one this time but that’s on me. Not on the plot or the characters. I’d been dictating but sometimes the story itself needs just loud music and a keyboard. The new TOOL album has been great and well, there’s always Metallica to keep me going.

So that’s what’s on my plate this week. I hope you all are doing well. Oh… and there’s so much planned for 2020. Can’t wait to get the clearance to share!

Hellion by Rhys Ford
From the moment SFPD Detective Ruan Nicholls meets Ivo Rogers, he knows the tattoo artist is going to bring chaos to his neat, orderly life. A hellion down to the bone, Ivo is someone Ruan not only doesn’t understand, he’s not even sure he needs to. Everything about Ivo is vibrant, brash, cocky, and arrogant, and Ruan wants no part of him.

Or at least that’s the lie he tells himself when he damps down his desire for the social wild child life tosses into his path.

For Ivo Rogers, life revolves around two things—his family and 415 Ink, the tattoo shop he co-owns with his four brothers. His family might be stitched together by their battle scars from growing up in foster care, but their brotherhood is tight—and strong enough to hold Ivo together during the times when he falls apart.

Now Ivo faces a new challenge when he falls for a cop with an old-school mentality on how a man looks and acts. Ruan is the promise of a life Ivo thought he’d never have, but their clashing perspectives threaten any chance of a relationship. Being the family’s hellion makes it easy to be misunderstood, yet Ivo has faith Ruan will not only embrace who he is but love him as well.

Blergh… a cold

I actually really need to detach from a lot of the noise people outside of my sphere of close friends are making.
I think the hardest thing to deal with today has been the chest cold… or head cold… or whatever it has been. Regardless I’ve got it. And so while I wish I were at the DSP workshop, I’d be a plague carrier if I’d gone.
And probably infected a group of preschool kids on the plane so they could then carry this outwards and onwards.
So to everyone who checked in on me today from the workshop, thank you. I miss you all too!
I’m catching up on RuPaul’s Drag Race because we joined in later and thought oh we should catch up. I find myself liking Alaska a lot more than I did only knowing her in bits and pieces and some people have definitely just cemented what I thought of them.
BenDeLaCreme was still robbed. I mean like… ROBBED! Probably like Shangela robbed but I’m on the fence there.
It’s hotter than… okay not THAT hot but pretty warm and the AC has kept the house very nice and cool. The dog however still feels the need to go out and roll on the hot cement. I have no idea why.
So I spent my waking hours today doing GRL buttons and then trying to decide if I really need 25 lbs of buttons but since I was doing the Sinners chibi couples, I feel like if I don’t do all of them, it’s kind of shitty. And don’t get me started on wanting to do one each of Dude and Harley.
It is ironic I now have a grey and white cat named Harley. I did not name her. I named Badger. Badger’s alternate names are Honey “GiveNoFucks” Badger, TacoCat and of course… Don Juan Gato de los Pantelones whose secret anithero persona of El Ass-jole frequently makes an appearance.
