If you’re going to be in the L.A. area, I’ll be teaching a course entitled Writing Short Fiction through Pasadena City College Extension during the month of February 2014. The class will meet on Saturdays, and we’ll be (attempting to) write a complete short story from start to finish.
Isn’t it pretty? Undeath and the Detective is here, and waiting for you! In paperback and ebook.
Also, Elm Books is proud to announce that we’re reissuing our first two mystery anthologies, Death on a Cold Night and Death and the Detective. Available now in paperback and ebook from Elm Books.
Release Day is coming up fast for Turnbull House, the first of two planned sequels to The Affair of the Porcelain Dog. Well, perhaps “fast” is pushing it. February, to be exact. But it’ll be here soon enough…almost. For a sneak peek, see my Excerpts page.
Ira’s third adventure, Fool’s Gold has been contracted and is currently underway!
Proud to announce that the BSB anthology Women of the Dark Streets, featuring my story The Trickster Codex has won a Goldie Award! Congratulations to my fellow authors!
What readers are saying about The Left Hand of Justice:
“…fast paced and delightfully dark” (BN customer review)
“a setting that blends the grime of history with a brassy steampunk shine” (BN customer review)
“an exciting book, with attention to historical detail, as well as exciting drama. It’s a worthy second novel, after Lambda shorlisted mystery, the Affair of the Porcelain Dog” (Amazon customer review)
“A really good read for anyone of any gender who enjoys a well written book.” (Goodreads reader review)
“Fast pace and interesting characters kept me glued to the pages until I finished” (Amazon customer review).
The Affair of the Porcelain Dog is now available as an audiobook through Audible.com. Audible is a great service, and if you’ve never tried audiobooks before, why not start with mine =) ?
“Victorian London comes alive through the eyes of a 19th century outlier.”
“The story is believable and has action, suspense, and mystery. Jess develops the characters, giving them a history, an emotional life, and believable personalities.”
“Philip Battley narrated the heck out of this book! He took Jess Faraday’s amazing story and put such an incredible performance behind his reading. Every accent and every tone just burst with verisimilitude.”
