The Monthly Round Up!

So. First things first. The Parting Glass, the sequel to In a Dark Wood is now available through Amazon, B&N, All Romance Ebooks, and Smashwords. It started as a Christmas coda, but then I realized I couldn't do the story justice, so I thought it would be a short story. But it was a little more complicated so it ended up at 23K novella. I hope you enjoy it.

Two and a half years ago, travel writer Timothy McShay let NYPD Detective Luke O'Brien talk him into hiking into the New Jersey Pine Barrens to face down a monster.

Now Tim and Luke meet again under very different circumstances. The old attraction is still there -- but so are some of Tim's monsters. Is it too late to find their way back to each other?

The illustrated Japanese translation of Don't Look Back will be available October 9th from Amazon Japan. The lovely, lovely cover can be seen in the post below.

On the audio book front...still no sign of In Sunshine or In Shadow, but In From the Cold (the I Spy collection) is now available through Audible.com Or if you'd like to just sample the first book, I Spy Something Bloody is available on its own as well. Chris Patton has completed work on Death of a Pirate King, so we'll probably see that mid-November. And Sean Crisden has completed work on The Dickens With Love, so again, maybe late November on that one. There is one more Dangerous Ground book to record and then the Armed and Dangerous collection will wend its way into the system as well. In fact, it might be going live about the time Kick Start comes out -- which is what I'm working on now.

Will is finally braced to bring Taylor home to meet the folks. Unfortunately, not every member of the Brandt clan loves Taylor the way Will does. Then again, not everyone loves the Brandts. In fact, someone has a score to settle -- and too bad for any former DS agents who get in the way when the bullets start to fly.

And that's pretty much where we are up to...now.

Hope you're having a beautiful Autumn. We went from blazing hot weather to cold in about the space of a week, and no real easing into the season.

The Parting Glass
That was a wonderful addition to IADW, even more angst filled than the first one, but I was right there with them both, had a definite visceral punch to it. Excellent as always.

Re: The Parting Glass
Thank you so much. So glad you enjoyed it.

I just bought both over at ARe, the Kindle copy of In a Dark Wood is a bit wonky, the title is attatched to the last line of each chapter.
Currently reading the EPUB instead, that one is looking good

(I gave up on the MOBI copy after this 'He had very IN A DARK WOOD white teeth')

Like the book so far :)

Uh oh! That's strange. The kindle mobi version seemed fine through Amazon. I'll recheck it. Sorry about that! I can send you the smashwords formatted mobi. That might work better?

No that's OK, I've got more reading options and both the EPUB & PDF works for me, just wanted to let you know :)

Yes, thanks. Worrisome, for sure.

Whee! Downloaded The Parting Glass from Amazon - that cover is to die for and I have saved it to my computer because my Kindle only does black and white... And then realised that much as I adored In a Dark Wood I would have to re-read it before starting the new book. A double treat in store!

Thank you! I do hope you enjoy it! Both of them. ;-)

Loved "The Parting Glass" - and I'll second moth2fic's opinion - that guy on the cover!!!

Really looking forward to more Taylor and Will! Thanks for the updates.

I know! I had no idea how effective that cover would be. ;-)

Loved this one Josh, it was wonderful. And I went back to find a version of 'The Parting Glass' and found it on a CD by The Voice Squad, a wonderful close harmony group from Ireland. The album is called Holly Wood, which seemed oddly appropriate. I now need to find Carrickfergus, which I used to have on tape...What about a playlist for this? I'd be fascinated to know what you listened to while writing it.

Have a good autumn, I love it when we get the first crisp frost and the leaves all turn colour, then blow off in the wind and crunch under foot. It makes me want to borrow a dog and go for a walk, and find a nice pub with a log fire and good beer...this year in London it has been cold, then warm, then wet and miserable. No season of mellow fruitfulness yet!

It's strange. It's cold but the leaves are not turning gold. It's chilly and windy.

I'm not familiar with Voice Squad.

Now every time I look at the book cover, I remember the "young Oscar Wilde" comment! :-)

Enjoy the yellow leaves! I think we are jumping right into winter later this week...

Same here! We went from hot to cold, and almost no time to adjust.
Oct. 8th, 2013 11:00 pm (UTC)
We had that, it went from really quite hot to freezing and I put all my real summer clothes away, result? Today it was teeshirt weather...in London, in October! It's outrageous! I want crunchy leaves and frost and the sharp smell of autumn, with a faint whiff of bonfire! And a new Josh Lanyon book to read by a nice pub fire, with a nice brandy mac to keep the cold out. (Equal parts of brandy and Crabbes Green Ginger Wine)

Sounds cozy. :-)

I started reading "The Parting Glass", pretty sure I had read the 1st of this set. Midway thru the 1st chapter, I realized I was wrong. I did go back and read "the Dark Wood". Great set, well done.
