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.

Blood Red Whaterfly

So, aside from the fact that I can't stop rewriting, even though the damned thing is in final edits, it looks like Blood Red Butterfly will go live some point this Monday. And to celebrate I (or rather the Fanyons) are throwing to Big Red Launch parties. Two parties for the price of one. There are games and a lot of really nice prizes (if I do say so myself) and just a lot of general goofy fun. None of its complicated or demanding and the fact that we are in our second day doesn't impact joining in right now. You can join in either or both parties -- it's just to celebrate finally having a book out again.

The Facebook party is here.

The Goodreads party is here. 

You are here. (Well, you could be!)

The Dead Run Play List

In celebration of the launch of Dead Run, which went live on Tuesday, I thought I would give away a copy of the playlist. By which I mean the music I mostly listened to when I was writing the story. I tried to make it available through iTunes, but now days you have to join their PING thing, and I'm leery of joining any other social network. So here's the list of songs that I will be gifting to someone. All you have to do to be eligible is comment in the comment section below. Then I'm going pick (well, I'M not going to pick, I'm going to use an automated program) from those comments and the winner gets a copy of the Dead Run playlist.


Need You Now - Antebellum
Drove All Night - Roy Orbison
Crash and Burn - Lifehouse
Far Away - Nickleback
Rob Thomas - Ever the Same
Make This Go On Forever - Snow Patrol
Map of the Problematique - Muse
Quelqu'un m'a dit (Someone Told Me) - Carla Bruni
Halfway Gone - Lifehouse
Our Lives - The Calling
La Toi du Moi - Carla Bruni

And for those of you who have already bought the book and are enjoying it -- thank you very sincerely!

**I'll let the comments run till Friday at midnight and choose then**

Come Unto These Yellow Sands now available

I've been slow getting over here to announce it, but Come Unto These Yellow Sands is now out and about at all the usual places.

Here's a bit of a blurb and a snippet to lure you, in case you need to be lured.

New from Samhain!

See the book trailer


Sometimes the adventure chooses you.

Lover of fine poetry and lousy choose-your-own-adventure novels, Professor Sebastian Swift was once the bad-boy darling of the literati. The only lines he does these days are Browning, Frost and Cummings. Even his relationship with the hot, handsome Wolfe Neck Police Chief Max Prescott is healthy.

When one of his most talented students comes to him bruised and begging for help, Swift hands over the keys to his Orson Island cabin—only to find out that the boy’s father is dead and the police are suspicious. In an instant, the stable life Swift has built for himself hangs on finding the boy and convincing him to give himself up before Max figures out Swift’s involvement in the case.

Max enjoys splitting an infinitive or two with his favorite nutty professor, but he’s not much for sonnets or Shakespeare. He likes being lied to even less. Yet his instincts—and his heart—tell him his lover is being played. Max can forgive lies and deception, but a dangerous enemy may not stop until Swift is heading up his own dead poet’s society.

Warning: The Surgeon General has determined that Josh Lanyon’s smart, sexy, sophisticated stories may prove hazardous to your heart.
