With the release of my latest SAVING GRACE, Amazon is doing a number of promotions to support the book.  You can pick up a bunch of my titles on the cheap so why not take advantage.  This is what is on the docket:

PAYING THE PIPER: In the forerunner to SAVING GRACE, The Piper is the infamous child kidnapper. When the Piper selected crime reporter, Scott Fleetwood, to chronicle his latest kidnapping, Scott thought he had the world in his grasp, but he held nothing. Now, eight years later, the Piper’s back, with very specific targets in mind—Scott’s children. He can have them back as long as he can pay the ransom, but it’s a ransom not measured in dollars, but in blood.

THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY: Zoë and Holli’s Vegas road trip goes wrong when they’re abducted. Zoë escapes leaving Holli behind. A year later and still tortured with guilt, Zoë latches on to a murder that eerily resembles her abduction. Her attempts to find justice for Holli brings her to the attention of the “Tally Man.” For him, she is not a survivor but simply the one that got away.

NO SHOW: Englishman Terry Sheffield has just arrived in San Francisco to start his new life with Sarah, the investigative journalist he married after a transatlantic love affair. But Sarah never shows up at the airport… When Terry reports his wife as missing, the police chalk it up to a new bride with cold feet. Then one murdered woman after another turns up, all with something in common: they had exposed scandals just before their deaths…and their names appear on a list that Sarah composed. As a journalist, Sarah’s exposed her share of scandals, and Terry realizes that she’s not missing—she’s on the run. To find her before the killer does, Terry must explore the dark recesses of his new homeland and rely on the help of some new friends. But as his search brings him closer to finding Sarah, Terry realizes she’s very different from the woman he thought he married.

Today’s the day.  I’m very happy to announce the release of an eBook exclusive from StoryHouse, The Frame Maker & Pathfinder.  StoryHouse specializes in short stories so this is a double pack of short stories (and not some twist on Smokey & The Bandit).  The book blurb goes a little like this:
 
In The Frame Maker, a woman takes revenge on her philandering husband by hiring the Frame Maker—a man who’s made a career of solving problems permanently. This job, however, might be the one frame that just won’t hang right.
 
In Pathfinder, newly widowed Vivian can’t understand why her husband killed himself in a seedy Vegas hotel room. So she travels to Sin City, where she’s mysteriously guided to dangerous and unexpected places. Soon Vivian finds herself on a treacherous road to the truth.
 
If you liked Alfred Hitchcock Presents, then you might like these, so I hope you’ll give them a whirl.

Something wicked awesome this way comes.
I am very happy to announce the re-launch of my Aidy Westlake mysteries (complete with fantastic new cover art).  The first two books in the series went out of print last year and I’m bringing them back in digital and paperback.  I’m very pleased because HOT SEAT never came out in paperback.  The eBooks came out last week and paperbacks will be available next month.
For those who aren’t familiar with Aidy Westlake, let me introduce him.  He’s a young racecar driver from the UK who becomes embroiled with seedier side of motor racing.  Luckily he’s ably assisted by his ex-Formula One mechanic grandfather and his best friend.  Aidy lives in the shadow of his father, Rob Westlake.  Believed to be the next big thing in Grand Prix racing, Rob died in a car crash along with Aidy’s mother before he ever raced in F1.  He’s determined to go the extra mile that his father never did, but he’s keeps being dragged into crimes associated with the sport.  Essentially, think Dick Francis with a lot more horsepower. 
The books in the series so far are:

DID NOT FINISH:

When Derek Deacon threatens to kill Alex Fanning, his championship rival, rookie driver Aidy Westlake doesn’t put much stock in it – it’s typical of the intense competitiveness and aggression in their world. But when Fanning dies after making contact with Deacon’s car during a race, a conspiracy ensues: the TV coverage is edited and the police wind up the investigation without interviewing witnesses. Compelled to prove Deacon is the murderer, Aidy pushes for the truth and is drawn into a world of fraud, organized crime and murder.

Available for:

HOT SEAT:

Things are looking good for Aidy Westlake. He’s Pit Lane magazine’s Young Driver of the Year, which has earned him a drive in the European Saloon Car Championship. But his good fortune ends at a race car show when he discovers Jason Gates, a mechanic from a rival team, with his throat cut. The murder sets off a disturbing chain reaction – someone is breaking the rules in the ranks of saloon car racing, on and off the track. 

Available for:


I sincerely hope you’ll check out the books as I’m very proud of them.  Obviously a lot of my own racing experiences provide the backbone for these books and future books in the series.  To answer the question—is Aidy Westlake me?  The answer is no.  He’s a far better driver and a lot more interesting.  J

These books are a prelude as to what is coming later in the year.  There’ll be a novella series starting with PILGRIM’S DROP followed by books three and four, OFF SEASON and THE BRAKING POINT.
I hope all this has your engines revving…
