It's Official -- Twice Over

First bit of news is that Snubnose Press will publish BLOOD ON BLOOD, a hardboiled crime novel by Jim Wilsky and me.

The Snubnose Press announcement is here, and you can read some of our thoughts about it on our blog, Harboiled Partners in Crime.

Snubnose is an excellent outfit with a great reputation, so being part of that family is pretty exciting.
I'm pretty pumped about this book, to say the least. Jim and I are starting work on the sequel, QUEEN OF DIAMONDS, but BLOOD ON BLOOD should be out sometime in May or early June. I'll update you all when the date is solidified.

I'm also excited to announce that May 1st, Colin Conway and I will be releasing our collaborative crime novel, SOME DEGREE OF MURDER. We've settled on a book cover, which was designed by local photographer and graphic artist, Matt J. Rose.

The description of SOME DEGREE OF MURDER:

A young woman has been murdered in River City. Police Detective John Tower is assigned to the case but there are few clues to go on. As he digs into the case, he's soon picking up hints that this murder may not be the killer's first ... or his last.

Virgil Kelly lives in the shadowy world of the criminal underground. He's just arrived in River City with a single-minded mission: find his daughter's killer and bury him.

In his search for a murderer, Tower uses his experience and training along with all the expertise of modern forensics.

In the hunt for his prey, Kelley uses intimidation and violence, tools which he wields with precision and anger.

Virgil Kelley and John Tower are on a collision course. Somebody is going to die.

River City will never be the same.
As you no doubt gather from the description, this novel is set in River City, a fictional Spokane. Many of the characters from River City novels and short stories appear in the book. 
The book will be released May 1st as an ebook and in print. The ebook will be available via Amazon, B&N and all other normal ebook outlets. The print copy will also be available via Amazon or direct order or through any bookstore (just give them the title and authors or ISBN).
Also, watch out for the possibility of a release party/book signing...
