This is your chance to complete your Josh Lanyon library. Nearly all my work has been cut to 50% when you purchase through the sale catalog. Next month most of these older, non series titles will be removed while I figure out the best way to repackage and market them. I’m giving you as much warning as I can ahead of time.



In Other Words… Murder, the long promised fourth book in the Holmes & Moriarity series is now available–and it’s still at the pre-order price of $4.99 thru the end of July.

Mystery author and sometimes amateur sleuth Christopher Holmes is now happily (all things being relative) engaged to be married and toying with starting a new career as a true-crime writer when he learns a body has been discovered in the backyard of his former home.
Then, to complicate matters, Christopher’s ex turns up out of the blue, suggesting the body may belong to Christopher’s former personal assistant.
It’s life as usual at Chez Holmes. In other words… Murder.

The book will be available in print as well as audio–we’ll keep you posted! 

The final book in the series, The 12.2 Per-Cent-Solution is scheduled for 2020


Now that you’ve had a chance to check it out, any suggestions for our new website?

We’ve opted for a much more simple and streamlined approach this time around. You can now search books by format, length, series–in addition to a variety of keywords such as Amateur Sleuth, Hurt-Comfort, Spec Fiction, Law Enforcement Officers, etc.

Another cool feature allows us to upload the first chapter of most audio books on their book page, so if you’re not sure audio is right for you, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to give it a test run.

For example, here’s the first chapter of THE MAGICIAN MURDERS narrated by Kale Williams:


In addition to links to our Zazzle Store and all social media outlets, you can take a look at what projects Josh has next lined up–as well as what she’s reading.

And speaking of our Zazzle Store, are there any particular items you wish we would make available for purchase? Any ideas as to T-shirts, collectibles, etc.?
