I do so adore these boys.

Ah, I’d forgotten about these!
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.
I haven’t forgotten any of you. It’s just been insane.
A quick note to catch up….
Lot of marketing for Dim Sum Asylum which is out on June 9, 2017 at Dreamspinner, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other online book stores. I’ve also got a tour hitting in a few days… which features a connective story and spans seven blogs. There’s a $20 gift certificate giveaway on each blog so be sure to hit every Participating blog. I’ve had double winners before. You could potentially pay your cable bill for the month.

On the LA front, Tramps and Thieves has a cover (mostly) and I’ve got to roll out a blurb before we go any further on that front. So look for the return of Rook and Dante in a few months.
Then back to SF with the start of the 415 Ink series. Hammered out a few thousand words but something wasn’t sticking right and after throwing spaghetti at the wall with one of the San Diego Crewe, I realized I’d used the wrong main character and was in the wrong storyline. So, that’s a bit of word tossing there and fitting in the right one.
After that is Sin and Tonic, the final Sinners book which will be so odd to write, especially after I’ve tucked Cole and Jae into retirement. Once Sinners is done, I’ll be writing Kai’s Third Book which is yet untitled.
On the home front, Yoshi the cat is sneezing but doing better. Vet said to reassess how she’s doing on Friday and if I need to bring her in, I can.
The freezer has gone wonky so that means a repairman. Who might come out, declare it dead and then that means a new one.
On the travel front, I am home for a few months but I do have a guest coming in July. I don’t know what we’re doing but I’m sure we’ll find something. I’m doing the Writer’s Police Academy so I’ll be up in Green Bay from Aug 8th to the 14th. After that is a trip to the home rock I was born on for a couple of weeks with Mom, Dad 2.0 and Hoku the Dog.
Following that is GRL (GayRomLit) in Denver. We’ll be starting the Highway to Heck road trip on October 13th from San Diego and drive on through Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon South Rim, Durango, Colorado Springs and ending up in Denver on October 17th. We’ll see if we do any Facebook Live or videos along the way.
So, that’s the Summer and Fall.
