It’s been raining pretty hard core these past few weeks and we’re going to get some more but for right now, the rain’s stopped.
I’m heading to Europe for the Salon du Livre and a St. Pancras Reader Meet next week and then after that, spending some time with the Five kicking around in the Cotswolds.
I’ll be writing Murder 3 in the next couple of months so I’ll be knee deep in in Rook and Dante’s life for a bit. Hellion’s in edits and Ramen Assassin’s done, looking for formatting and rolling into its release date.
Jacked Cat Jive has done well and I have a lot of gratitude to each and every one of you for helping me make it successful and I promise, we’ll see book 4 a hell of a lot sooner. Because oh man, do I have a plot I want to write.
I have to be better about plugging books. People keep telling me I need to communicate about books being out.
I’ve got word Kai’s audiobook is in production with the marvelous Greg Tremblay once again providing a voice for my snarky special kitteh and if you missed the news, Kale Williams will be joining the audiobook stable in his first outing with Ramen Assassin in June.
My dog’s recovering from an eye and cut infection because Badger the cat’s a bit of an asshole or it could be he just got an infection and Badger’s innocent of all wrong-doing. No one believes that but Badger’s got a good PR team working that campaign.
When life gives Kuro Jenkins lemons, he wants to make ponzu to serve at his Los Angeles ramen shop.
Instead he’s dodging bullets and wondering how the hell he ended up back in the black ops lifestyle he’d left behind. After rescuing former child star Trey Bishop from a pair of murderous thugs, he reluctantly picks his guns up again. It seems trouble isn’t done with Trey, and Kuro can’t quite let go… of either danger or Trey.
Trey never denied his life’s downward spiral was his own fault. After stints in rehab, he’s finally shaken off his Hollywood bad-boy lifestyle, but not his reputation. The destruction of his career and relationships was epic, and no one trusts anything he says, including the LAPD. When two men dragging a dead body spot him on a late-night run, then try to murder him, Trey is thankful for the tall, dark, and deadly ramen shop owner not just for rescuing him, but also for believing him.
Now caught in a web of murders and lies, Trey knows someone wants him dead, and the only one on his side is a man with dark secrets. Trey hopes Kuro will stick around to see what the future holds for them once the dust settles, but from the looks of things, neither of them may survive to find out.
