Death in the Valley - Coming Soon!

Well, it's been a while since my last post, but things have been quite busy the last few months. I decided, as is usual for me, to set aside my story and allow it to simmer, baste, marinate, etc. I like to step away and then a month or so later get back into it to see if I am on to something. Here is what I am on to.

Andrew Keane is back with Death in the Valley. The story revolves around some high profile murders gripping the Roanoke Valley. Andrew is just coming off one of the most stressful cases in his life (The Reunion Reaper), and with new partner JC WHITT in tow, they embark on a crazy journey that has three high profile people in the Roanoke Valley dead, a possible high school cult behind the murders, and Andrew's growing pains with having to have a partner for the first time in his professional career.

This story has a lot more moving parts than the last one, and rather than having Andrew flying off to the destination of the week, like the previous case, this case will have him staying right in his hometown.

I am excited about the possibilities this story has to offer, and I believe you will not only get to know Andrew better, but begin to make decisions as to the true character of this man and all that goes along with him.

My timeline for the release of this story will hopefully be late spring. I already have an idea for the third installment for Andrew that will be exciting and the most dangerous story yet. Here's a tease, it just might be the final story relating to Andrew.

Well, there you have it. I encourage comments and suggestions because the last time I checked, I don't have all the answers, nor do I have all the ideas.

A special thank you goes out to my good friend Kathy Greene in Florida for her willingness to edit for me, and to my good friend Page Fairchilds, who is a constant sounding board for ideas and suggestions.

BTW, I am looking to make THE REUNION REAPER available on PubIt, Barnes and Noble's answer to Create Space (Amazon's Publishing Co). This will make the book available on both Kindle and Book Nook. Stay tuned for more announcements on that. And, if you have not had the chance to get a copy of The Reunion Reaper, go to Amazon via the link posted.
