Dim Sum Asylum by Rhys Ford
Available NOW at
Dreamspinner, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other online book stores

Welcome to Dim Sum Asylum: a San Francisco where it’s a ho-hum kind of case when a cop has to chase down an enchanted two-foot-tall shrine god statue with an impressive Fu Manchu mustache that’s running around Chinatown, trolling sex magic and chaos in its wake.

Senior Inspector Roku MacCormick of the Chinatown Arcane Crimes Division faces a pile of challenges far beyond his human-faerie heritage, snarling dragons guarding C-Town’s multiple gates, and exploding noodle factories. After a case goes sideways, Roku is saddled with Trent Leonard, a new partner he can’t trust, to add to the crime syndicate family he doesn’t want and a spell-casting serial killer he desperately needs to find.

While Roku would rather stay home with Bob the Cat and whiskey himself to sleep, he puts on his badge and gun every day, determined to serve and protect the city he loves. When Chinatown’s dark mystical underworld makes his life hell and the case turns deadly, Trent guards Roku’s back and, if Trent can be believed, his heart… even if from what Roku can see, Trent is as dangerous as the monsters and criminals they’re sworn to bring down.

Apologies…

First off, my apologies for being AWOL. I came back from the LA Times Festival of Books with the most horrific of flus and right now am kind of stumbling through life.

I am really brain dead at the moment. But I wanted to share this with you. This offer is good for ALL DSP sites and goes until April 30th!

From Elizabeth North, owner of Dreamspinner Press

Last Friday, credit card processing was shut off on our site by the underwriters of Dreamspinner Press‘s merchant account because of our content. After 10 years of business with them, we weren’t even notified. To have it reinstated, we had to justify what we sell. Our representative at Bank of America went to bat for us, or we would have had no recourse.

We won our appeal, and I’m celebrating this small victory in a much bigger fight.

Thank you for supporting us for 10 years. Our authors and readers are what make Dreamspinner Press, DSP Publications, Harmony Ink Press what we are, and we will continue to fight and celebrate with you.

A special thank you to Anne Regan, Rhys Ford, Andrew Grey, Bru Baker, Paul Richmond, and Jake Wells who were with me at the LA Times Festival of Books last weekend, hugged me, and let me rant.
