Current projects

I currently working on a new Benny Cahill mystery for an Amazon bundle being put together by a number of fellow writers. I don’t want to give away too much information, but it titled All that Glitters is Not Gold and it involves Cahill in a museum. Keep your eyes out for information about the bundle. Until then, enjoy this new cover.

On top everything else, I am working on a mystery novel collaboration project with two fellow writers. All I can say is that it is a noir story set in modern-day. We’re still in the early stage of the project.

Coming Attractions

Up until now, this blog has mainly been a place for me to tell you about my new books and projects. Starting next week, I will start writing posts about my favorite Old Time Radio and TV programs. If you like my stories, you’ll enjoy these great shows from the Golden Age of radio.

ALERT – Fire in the Night has been removed from Smashwords

I just got a notification that Smashwords does not publish previews, they only publish complete stories. Since that was the case, I have unpublished Fire in the Night, thus it will not be available on iTunes, Barnes and Nobles, and more. Don’t worry though, I created a epub and pdf version of Fire in the Night. So come and get Fire in the Night PDF or epub here. Sorry for any inconvenience. The previous post has been corrected.

New Book Released – Fire in the Night!!!

Fire in the Night, a preview of Rumors of War

I am proud to announce the release of another ebook. This ebook, entitled Fire in the Night, is a preview of an upcoming novel to be released Fall 2015. My upcoming novel, Rumors of War, will by my first finished novel, so I hope you look forward to it.

Here is the summary from Fire in the Night:

In the early 1860s, European headlines are filled with stories of attacks on the merchant vessels of many countries. Europe is filled with suspicion and paranoia. Is it pirates or a hostile power? Wealthy American playboy Tom Cavanaugh smells trouble and those who look for trouble, always get more than they bargain for.

Currently, Fire in the Night is only available as pdf or epub.  Thanks.

Announcing the Newest Benny Cahill eBook on Smashwords

After several months of hard work, I’m proud to announce that the newest stories of Benny Cahill, PI are now available on Smashwords. Trouble is My Client contains FOUR new and never before seen Benny Cahill stories. These stories (Where There’s a Will, Now Hear This, Reach for It, and To the Moon) recall the days of Old Time Radio and the detective stories that formed a generation of Americans. From the Smashwords page:

 Benny Cahill is back. After getting involved in a crooked horse race in Don’t Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth, the cynical and wise-cracking private detective returns in four never before published mysteries. These noir stories are inspired by the author’s love of Old Time Radio shows. This collection includes a foreword by Theresa Linden, author of Chasing Liberty.

Do eBook Covers Have to Cost $$$$?

If you ever published an ebook or just looked into publishing an ebook, one of the biggest costs is the cover. I’ve seen prices as low as $40 and as high as $300+. You could make your own ebook cover, especially if you’re a graphic designer, but most people don’t have that skill.

Luckily, there is this great place called Fiverr, where you can get all kinds of stuff starting at $5. I got my last ebook cover from a seller named Angie. Check out here gig. She does terrific work. Also, check out everything that Fiverr have to offer.

 

Free Book and Coming Attractions

My ebook Don’t Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth is now free on all platforms, except Amazon. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find a way to find a way to make it free on Amazon. If you enjoy hard-boiled mysteries or detective shows from the golden age of radio, check it out. You can find it on Smashwords, Barnes and NobleKobo or iTunes. If you like it, feel free to review it.

On another note, I am working on the next installment of the Benny Cahill series. The working title for now is Where There’s a Will. I plan to release it on September 15th. Keep an eye on this blog for more announcements.
