A new mystery story, an audio book, and some deals. Take a peek!
Here’s the heartbreaking part of this new world. Many long-time writers, who want to go full indie, are abandoning their series rather than put money into their traditional publishers’ pocket. The first time I heard a writer say he was going to do that, I was shocked.

The Falls will appear in […]

I know my overseas fans have felt frustrated that they were unable to buy the first three novels, so let me begin with that news. You can buy the first three novels worldwide now. I can’t link to them, since I’m in the States, but I can […]
Or something like that. I mean, even I get tired of calling these news posts “News!” So, here’s a few things you might want to catch up on. First, WMG Publishing has put together a Diving Bundle. They’ve compiled six of the novellas from the Diving universe into one hefty ebook, and had me write an introduction. If you’ve read the first four Diving novels, […]
