Here's the latest scoop on all my current writing projects:
A Change of Worlds
The finished rewrite of the fifth Killian Kendall mystery, A Change of Worlds, is with the publisher and we've just started the editing process. It's on track to be released in February or March of 2012.
Men of the Mean Streets
I was invited to be a part of an exciting new anthology edited by award-winning mystery author Greg Herren. Noir has always been one of the most popular—and darkest—sub-genres of the mystery field. Following in the footsteps of such masters of the form as James M. Cain, Raymond Chandler, and Dashiell Hammett, some of the top writers of gay mystery explore this territory of amoral tough guys with a cynical view of the world by giving classic noir a gay twist. The book is available now!
Dave and I just started a massive rewrite of Breaking Masks. The basic concept, alternating point-of-view chapter-by-chapter between Jake and Kody, will remain the same, but we're writing a lot of new material and changing some things up. I think it'll be an even stronger story when we're finished. It's just like old times. Sometimes it's scary how much we think alike... It's looking like a Fall 2012 release, if all goes well.
New Killian Kendall Mystery
I've started plotting and researching for a brand new Killian Kendall book. It will take things in an increasingly dark direction. I held a poll on Facebook to pick the title, and A Kind of Death won by a landslide. I'll release some more teasers as things come together.
New Mystery Series
That's right, you read correctly. I've started the very early stages of plotting and researching for an entirely new series. I don't have a lot of information for you on this just yet, but I can tell you it was inspired by my short story for the noir anthology and will be set in Baltimore. Expect a grittier, more mature story than we've seen from Killian.
