This is the year for getting back to things. (I've probably said that before.) The first thing on the agenda is Brandywine Investigations.
Some of you may remember that this started over at Amber Quill Press, with Hades and his initial story as part of a prompt bundle. The first story, Canines, Crosshairs and Corpses, was part of a "gods/demigods" bundle with various authors. The second was actually from a picture prompt from a Goodreads group - and No Enemy But Time took a darker turn. The third was from a "dragons" prompt - Dragons, Diamonds and Discord - Hermes story. They were initially separate stories.
The fourth story for Dionysus - Books, Bulls and Bacchanals - came out briefly and a couple months later, the publisher closed.
The first three stories were collected at Mischief Corner Books in the omnibus Brandywine Investigations: Open For Business, but poor Dionysus was sitting by himself with no story buddies to make a second omnibus.
I'd originally started out with Hades and his extended family in mind, but by the second book it became clear that sticking solely to Greek gods was silly. It's a big world out there. The stories revolve around Hades' family, yes, but by this fifth book, there were gods from all sorts of pantheons involved.
Tons of gods involved in this fifth story, Pack Up The Moon, which is what the second omnibus has been waiting for. Anyway... soon...
Brandywine Investigations: Family Matters releases February 28.
You know, for not having a lot of hard deadlines this year, I've still managed to be ridiculously busy. What's going on right now? Let's see...
Brandywine Investigations: Family Matters
release date February 28
Yes, the second omnibus has an official title, a blurb, should be going to the line editor this weekend, and the amazing Beckah Murray (of Magical Boy Basil - if you don't read this web comic, you should) has agreed to do the cover - yaaaay!
With his career firmly established and his reputation as a successful PI growing, Hades should have the perfect life with his human lover, his faithful ferryman, his dogs and the parts of his family still speaking to him. But murder and chaos are never far away for death lords as his nephew Dionysus and his oldest friend Charon are drawn into the maelstrom.

Finn: Endangered Fae 1
Some readers have expressed dismay that the Endangered Fae series is not currently available. Fear not! Finn will be back quite soon, going up for preorder at Price on April 10. The rest of Endangered Fae will follow this year. Look out for new covers. :)
Brimstone Journals, Volume 2
Just started work this week on organizing the Journals from 2017. These will go in a chronological anthology as the first year's did and I've promised (of course I have) MCB a proper short story for the back of the book as I did with the first volume.
Release date to come when I'm a little farther along with the project.
Yes, I knew it was next year, but it always takes a bit to sink in. Here's where the definite things are right now - anything else is subject to change and oddities of whimsy:
Offbeat Crimes - paranormal romance humor- 6 books - can be found at Pride Publishing and tons of other distributors. The first four books are available in omnibus editions (Volume 1 and 2) while books 5 and 6 are standalone paperbacks:
