I’m 50 this coming Saturday! (Holy smokes, how did that happen??)
What better way to celebrate than to launch the second in my Tim Reaper Series, THE GIRL ON VICTORIA ROAD. This is a much darker novel than the first in the series as Reaper must protect eight-year-old Charlotte from the guys upstairs, downstairs and in-between because all of them want her dead for the knowledge she possesses. She can see the base code of the universe and no mortal is allowed to know the truth of all things. There are lots of explosions, lots of car chases and a whole lot more. (Plus lots or Carol Sparks shooting creatures from the abyss.)
The Kindle version is on sale now at Amazon for $3.99 and as a bonus,
the price on IMMORTAL REMAINS, the first in the series is only 99¢ to celebrate the new book’s release! Don’t have a Kindle and EPUB is your format? You can get it here! How cool is that?
Paperback is coming soon! So … get yourself settled in and order up some sweet urban fantasy, Canadian style!
This is a book I have worked on for five years. It has gone the round of basically all the publishers who publish urban and dark fantasy. PS … It’s hard as hell to have a breakthrough novel in UF and DF these days. I’ve decided to self-publish it because it’s time.
So … let me introduce you to Tim Reaper – he’s a character from my 2010 novel FUNERAL PALLOR – go order it if you want a taste of what he’s about.
And this is what IMMORTAL REMAINS is about:
He’s not a detective and he doesn’t give a crap if your spouse is cheating on you. Human and supernatural beings avoid him like the plague because if you get too close he’ll gleefully tell you the time and date of your own demise and that’s before he punches you in the face.
For nearly one hundred years, Tim Reaper (yes, that’s what he calls himself) has been living as a fixer, a rum runner, an enforcer and occasionally, a gumshoe. He hasn’t aged a day because of his habit of borrowing the bodies of the recently deceased. (A convenient trick when you’re on the lam.) Banished to the human world for tinkering with the natural order of life and death, he’s kept himself busy with a peculiar hobby: ending the lives of murderers and serial killers alike.
Except now, the bodies are piling up in Mexico City, Boston and the port city of Halifax. In fact, someone just found a corpse at the shipping terminal and it’s not entirely human. Called on by the Holy See to put an end to the madness, Reaper is about to learn that this particular serial killer has a hate-on for heavenly bodies and even the Supreme Being will pay the bounty if it means saving humanity from the abyss.
Look for IMMORTAL REMAINS in August.
PSS – Thanks to the author of The Collector Series, Chris Holm, for the cover blurb. Go buy his books because he’s a fantastic author.
Hey look! It’s the cover art for my forthcoming middle grade debut, To Catch a Cat Thief!
What’s it about? Have a read below!
Hundreds of cats are missing! Fear not-Penelope Ann Pickersgill and her hippie grandma are on the case!
While her friends go to cool camps, twelve-year-old Penelope has to spend the summer with Grandma Bev, who is convinced that cat-eating aliens are beaming the town’s furry friends aboard their mother ship at night. Lights in the sky point to UFO’s, but Penelope is sure there’s a more logical explanation. With a little help from Sherlock Holmes, she and Grandma Bev set out to find the cats. Will they be able to solve the mystery before all the cats in Thornhill disappear?
Why yes, that’s a Dodge Caravan painted up hippie-style!
This is my first book published by a Canadian publisher, so that’s a pretty big deal to me. Rebelight Publishing calls Winnipeg its home ( yes, a place colder than where I live in Saskatoon) and I’m pleased as punch to have this romp of a missing cat mystery published by them. It’s already listed on Amazon, you can pre-order a copy here and here. It comes out in October (even though Amazon says September 15th). I’ll be doing a launch here in Saskatoon and hopefully getting some copies out into the hands of bloggers for a few reviews before the big day.
So … there you go. Nice to get something fun out to the Interweb on a Monday morning!
