(So many exclamation points!!)
The Hunt for Red Fluffy
(more vendors are on the way!)
Mischief Corner Books
Barnes and Noble
Someone abandons a pedigree hellcat right where Shax can conveniently claim her and sets off a cataclysmic domino line of events. It's time for the other shoe to drop since the Brimstone has a shadow cabal after them—partly due to Shax's own, er, interesting decisions and partly due to the presence of Agent Julian Parallax onboard.
As ship security officer, Ness has a lot on his mind—a dangerous new pet, even more dangerous criminals tracking the Brimstone, and yet another unexpected rescued guest. The last thing he needs is a distraction and Julian, who confuses and confounds him more every moment, is exactly the distraction he doesn't need. Between Shax's reckless gambits and Julian's disregard for his own safety, how is Ness supposed to keep anyone safe?
The Brimstone and her intrepid crew do all they can to stay one step ahead, but this time the hunters are closing in.
Haven't started the series yet? Here's your first stop - where Shax's rather bumpy journey begins!
And the rest of the series - from anti-gravity cows to strange frog reactions to pink hedgehogs and the Poe House!
Taking a bit of a break from updates on Offbeat Crimes and Holiday stories for a Special News Bulletin of sorts.
We all know that Shax speaks French - he would say flawlessly. I can't verify that. You'd have to ask a native speaker to evaluate his Hell provinces accent.
But very soon here, Shax's adventures will also be translated into French. :o The lovely folks over at Reines-Beaux Publishing have contracted the Brimstone works for translation with the first coming out sometime Nov/Dec of this year and releases ongoing through early 2019.
More to share as we get closer. You know our Shaxy is absurdly pleased. There will be much preening, gods help me.
The big news this week, if you haven't seen me jumping up and down and shrieking about it yet, is the release of Vassily the Beautiful on audio. (!!) Greg Boudreaux lends his voice talents to the characters and narration and it is everything you could ever want in Vassily. It is all the things.
Cheese and crows. It's worth a listen just for Sumerki alone.
It's up at Audible, Amazon and iTunes.
Also, Vance Bastian is doing edits on the final couple of chapters for Shax's War: Brimnstone 3. The boys are back, and you all will get to hear Vance's interpretation of the new characters. (Leopold is so cute, and Mac is...I'm not giving it away. You'll have to wait. :D )
So we should have Shax's War before the month is out of the Audible gods are kind!
It's Friday, and by special request, I'm reading one of the ficlets from The Brimstone Journals: Collection One. The Brimstone series - if you're not familiar - is science fiction that can't be taken too seriously with an exiled demon prince as the ship's captain, a drag queen AI, and an ever-stranger cast and crew. The Brimstone Journals are supplementary flash fiction pieces for the series, a new one every Tuesday on the Mischief Corner Books blog. The first year's worth was gathered up and published in convenient book form in chronological order with some extra charts and explanations and a bonus holiday story that did not appear on the blog. The journals live here:
And on to today's reading - This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things:
The Brimstone series - four stories and a prequel - are, in order:
Potato Surprise: A Brimstone Prequel
Hell for the Company
Fear of Frogs
Beside a Black Tarn
And the flash fiction collection:
