Book Covers Revealed! (and etc.)
Gray Dog Press has unveiled the book covers for the forthcoming River City books.
Beneath a Weeping Sky is the third book in the series and will be released March 27th. In it, River City is plagued by a serial rapist. Detective John Tower tries to catch him, while Officers Tom Chisolm and Katie MacLeod deal with their own ghosts in the process of helping him.
Under a Raging Moon and Heroes Often Fail are the first and second books of the River City Series, respectively. In Under a Raging Moon, a serial robber is at work in River City and getting progressively more violent. This novel focuses on the patrol officers as they try to stop the robber before he kills someone. Heroes Often Fail features both patrol officers, detectives and bosses as everyone scrambles to find a six year old girl who is kidnapped in broad daylight.
These two books will be re-issued by Gray Dog Press on January 20th.
Once released, you can pick up your copy at any local bookstore or order it directly from the publisher at http://graydogpress.com/. The books should be listed in the publisher bookstore any day now.
It takes a couple of weeks, but the books will be available on Amazon, too.
Also, good news -- my publisher has tentatively okay'd a series of short story collections featuring River City characters and settings. The first will be released in the Fall of 2010. At this point, we are looking at doing this every Fall for about four years.
More good news -- my publisher and I also reached a verbal agreement for the publication of the fourth River City crime novel, And Every Man Has to Die. Look for that in March of 2011!
Lastly, don't forget to check out the current issue of SpokeWrite. As I mentioned before, my short stories "Vancouver Dreams" (as Frank Scalise) and "The Worst Door" are featured, as well as an interview with me.
