Hi Colette!

First off - thank you so much! So good to hear you enjoyed Damien and Blaze. Second, yes. There is a sequel in the works. (Bad author, bad, to take so long, I know.) I've had a lot of contractual, business, and writing obligations this past year - we're coming to the end of them now.

The sequel, titled "From the Noblest Motives," takes place a few months after the end of Rarely Pure. While Damien is still front and center, Shudder will have his own story to tell. Thank you for being patient with me - too much scrambling does not a focused writer make.(less)

Hi Andrea!

First of all - thank you! For your support and your kind words. :) This is kind of a busy month - so bear with me while I try to organize release and WIP news in my brain...

End of May, Amber Allure released the first in a new paranormal humor series for me (Offbeat Crimes is the series name) - "Lime Gelatin and Other Monsters," which is about a squad of paranormal misfit cops in Philadelphia.

The second Offbeat Crimes books is due out 6/21, titled "The Pill Bugs of Time."

Earlier this month, Mischief Corner Books released a science fiction short story (not romance) for me titled "The Color of his Crest." (On the more serious side of the house for me.)

On Tuesday, (6/16) Totally Bound releases the second AURA novel, the sequel to Quinn's Gambit, titled "Flax's Pursuit." It's up for pre-order everywhere, but only Totally Bound website customers get it on Tuesday. Everyone else has to wait until 7/14. ;)

I just sent the fourth Brandywine Investigations novel to Amber Allure, titled Books, Bulls, and Bacchanals (that's the story for Dionysus.) Don't have a release date quite yet - probably late summer, early fall would be my guess.

*whew, gasp, pant* Finally? I'm currently working on a new Brimstone story - there will be two new ones this year. The first is a Brimstone prequel, a little Shax and Verin adventure quite a bit before the events of Hell for the Company. Mischief Corner will probably have that first one out later this summer (though it depends on how fast I write) and the second Brimstone will release as part of the Autumn anthology over at MCB.

There. Aren't you sorry you asked? ;)

When deep-space pirates capture Vassily’s mother, he's left to the mercy of his cruel, amoral stepfather. Fighting addiction, fear, and his own physical shortcomings, he's forced to seek out the criminal mastermind Baba Yaga for a crucial piece of equipment. While she agrees to deal with him if he beats his Exoticus addiction, paranoia and mysterious intentions infuse her household. Drawn to her fierce, suspicious youngest son, certain his actions are all carefully measured, Vassily must find the courage to face both his fears and his desires if he expects to survive.
