Thanks to my very good friend and publisher RJ Parker, here is the link on this special release day for:


Here is the cover and blurb we're using for release - coming very soon.

Wielding incredible power, Jed grows up next door with his childhood partner, Erin Constanza, sharing Jed’s monstrous secret of what his Mom thinks of as raising the ‘Dark Superman’. Jed and Erin, now a policewoman with the Sacramento Police Department, find out their lives have been catalogued by a secret government group formed to watch Jed’s growth into adulthood power.

Blood Lust (Dhampir) Finished

I finished my new paranormal novel about a half human/half vampire from the short story I wrote titled 'Dhampir'. Because most people don't know what a Dhampir is, we're probably going to title it 'Blood Lust'. In any case, brother RJ Parker already has the manuscript draft for 'Blood Lust', and I'm editing it while writing my Hard Case/Cold Blooded crossover titled 'Red Waves'. Here's an initial blurb I wrote for 'Blood Lust'.

A vampire named Aaron, buried alive after the Battle of Gravelines near Calais, rips a path across Europe when unearthed, escaping to America. He seduces a young college coed, Jillian Mary Blake. Young Jillian gives birth to Jedidiah Israel Blake. Jedidiah, a half human/half vampire Dhampir wields incredible power. Jed’s childhood partner, Erin Constanza, grows up next door sharing Jed’s monstrous secret of what his Mom thinks of as raising the ‘Dark Superman’. Jed and Erin find out their lives have been catalogued by a secret government group formed to watch Jed’s growth into adulthood power. They want to harness Jed’s blood lust for their own purposes. He’s happy to oblige.

That's my update for now. We'll have the release date soon.

Dhampir Novel Progress

I am 60K words into my new paranormal novel Dhampir. It should be ready for release by February. Work will then begin on Hard Case VII: Red Waves with part of the novel a crossover event with Nick McCarty's crew from Cold Blooded. Dhampir's new characters, Jed and Erin, have a rather unique relationship between Dhampir and human. They grew up together.  :)


Here's the link to the new BTS Reviews January/February issue which has a little of everything from the publishing world including articles, reviews, columns, and of course links to new novels from the ads, including mine.

Christmas Crossover Event!

I have resisted any crossover between series teams in the past, but I thought of an idea creating an early prequel link between Nick McCarty and John Harding. This Christmas short story in RJ Parker Publishing's newsletter crosses my 'Cold Blooded' and 'Hard Case' series characters from a point earlier than either series. I believe the fans of the 'Cold Blooded' and 'Hard Case' series will enjoy the free prequel to a crossover in present day times bringing the two teams together in 'Hard Case Book VII: Red Waves' I'm contemplating now for a possible May or June release. Let RJ and I know what you think of the prequel story. Merry Christmas!

Dhampir Update and Series Links

My new paranormal creation, tentatively titled Dhampir, will reach nearly 30K words by tonight. The action and humor are there with a bit of romance. Background story of how my main character, Jedidiah Israel Blake, came into being proceeded well without huge info dumps. He's going to be quite a character. His partner since childhood, Erin Constanza, will not be a cardboard cutout either, nor will his Mom and Grandparents. I wanted to update progress on the new novel along with providing links to the Hard Case, Cold Blooded, Rick Cantelli, P.I., and Demon series pages. Their first books in the series are at reduced prices for now. Cold Blooded V: Nightmare in Red has been garnering great reviews. The fans of the series are seeing everything I had hoped they would. Here are the series pages on Amazon.

Cold Blooded V: Nightmare in Red - Release Day!

Cold Blooded V: Nightmare in Red

I sent the files into RJ Parker for Cold Blooded V: Nightmare in Red. He did his usual superlative work finalizing categories, links, and marketing connections for Amazon release. They surprised us by listing Nick McCarty's newest pulp fiction adventure earlier than expected. If you're tired of reading the kid glove treatment Isis and the usual suspects of Islamist hordes get in reality, take a trip into Nick McCarty land where the world's number one murderous enemy meets with an assassin without peer, remorse, or mercy. Here's the link for the new Nick McCarty adventure:
