I finally have a release date for The Ghoul Vendetta audiobook — September 19!  As soon as the pre-order button goes live, I’ll let you know.

Meanwhile, I’m working hard on The Myth Manifestation (SPI Files #5), which will be out on November 7. I’m almost at 30k words, and have started work with the fabulous Julie Dillon on the cover.

Books I love and read again & again — Rainbow Six by Tom Clancy

Uncategorized Add comments

Today’s “love it and read it again” book is Rainbow Six by Tom Clancy. I’ve read and loved many of Tom Clancy’s works, but Rainbow Six stands out as the one I keep going back to. Awesome action and great character development. Warning: It’s a big book. The original hardcover version (which I have) can be used as a doorstop–or brutally effective spider squasher. Though being a big book means it’ll just keep you happier for longer.

Rainbow Six: (paperback), (ebook), (hardcover)

Here’s the jacket copy:

In this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller, author Tom Clancy takes readers into the shadowy world of anti-terrorism and gets closer to reality than any government would care to admit…

Ex-Navy SEAL John Clark has been named the head of Rainbow, an international task force dedicated to combating terrorism. In a trial by fire, Clark is confronted with a violent chain of seemingly separate international incidents. But there is no way to predict the real threat: a group of terrorists like none the world has ever encountered, a band of men and women so extreme that their success could literally mean the end of life on earth as we know it.

Snippet from The Myth Manifestation

I thought I’d start off the post-holiday work week with a snippet from The Myth Manifestation (aka SPI Files 5) that will be out November 7. And no, the pre-order links aren’t up yet. ; )               

I hope you enjoy it!

While Ian and I weren’t officially on duty for another hour, we knew we’d been unofficially on duty the instant we set foot outside our hotel room doors.

Neither one of us had had nearly enough coffee to deal with this.

And it didn’t look like I was gonna be eating that bacon biscuit in my jacket pocket anytime soon.

The pair of arched doors leading to the Regor Regency’s ballroom was just as ornate and beautiful as the rest of the hotel.

For now.

One of the doors quickly opened, two pale and wide-eyed hotel staffers darted out, slammed the door, and threw their backs against it as something bigger than both of them put together charged the door from the other side.

The resulting boom shook the floor under our feet, and the door buckled, but held.  


I was fairly certain I was underqualified to deal with whatever was on the other side, and I was positive I didn’t want to open that door for confirmation, but that was our job. Confirm and confront things from the other side.  

My mouth was suddenly a tad bit dry. “Well, that’s interesting.”  

A normal person would think that was something you didn’t usually see in an upscale Manhattan hotel.

We weren’t normal people, and this wasn’t a normal hotel.

Books I read again & again — NYPD Red series

Uncategorized Add comments

Before I continue my weekly series on books I read again & again because they’re just that good (at least in my opinion), I have some book news/updates of my own.

I’m working on The Myth Manifestation (SPI Files #5). We now have a publication date — November 7. No, it isn’t available for pre-order yet, but I’ll let you know the second it is. 

Speaking of pre-orders, The Ghoul Vendetta audiobook is running behind because the narrator I use (Johanna Parker) is booked until August. :  (  So that book won’t be available from Audible until at least the end of August. Audible has promised to get a pre-order button up, but I haven’t heard back from them on when that will happen. Rest assured that I’ll keep pushing for answers.

The reviews for Ruins & Revenge have been great! If you’ve read it and enjoyed it, please consider leaving a review (even a brief one) on the retail site of your choosing. Thank you!!

Now on to books I love so much I read them multiple times. This week is the NYPD Red series by James Patterson. Great police procedural about a special unit tasked with high profile cases involving the rich and famous. I love the snappy interplay between the two protags: Detectives Kylie McDonald and Zach Jordan. The books aren’t long, and the action moves at a quick clip. A great summer read. I just love ’em!  Even better is that there are four of them out. I have the fifth on pre-order, and it’ll be out on January 18.

Here are the links if you want to give them a try:

NYPD Red (paperback) (ebook)  

NYPD Red 2 (paperback) (ebook)

NYPD Red 3 (paperback) (ebook)

NYPD Red 4 (paperback) (ebook)
