On the 2nd of January 2024, I sat down and began writing the next Kenzie Gilmore book. Book 7 in the series, STORM SURGE. Yesterday, I wrote the last line. That’s exactly 6 weeks, although to be fair, I put down a lot more words in the last two weeks than in the first four, but that was because I ran into a couple of sticky plot issues that needed resolving and got behind schedule. Some books are like that.
I’m branching out this year into the brave new world of direct selling. For the new series of books I have planned, you will now be able to buy them early, before anyone else, via my website. I will also be selling special editions, book bundles and large print versions from my online store. If you’re like me, and your eyes are not as good as they used to be, the large print editions will be a welcome option.
Speaking of new series, ROUGH JUSTICE, which is releasing mid-year, features a heroine unlike you’ve ever seen before. Gritty, tough, and damaged, she operates in the shadows and will stop at nothing to see justice served. “A female protagonist unlike any you’ve seen before,” was one remark I got from an editor, and “Hugely relatable and filled with pathos,” was another. I can’t wait to bring her to you.
DCI Rob Miller is back for more in the next instalment in the series later in the year. Once again, set along the Thames, this case takes him back to a previous investigation that he’d rather forget, but makes him question whether he caught the right guy the first time round. Stay tuned for more on that.
Who doesn’t love a good spin-off, right? The latest Dalton Savage book, THE FROST KILLER, introduced a young, FBI agent, Avril Dahl, who now becomes the focus of her own series. Be sure to sign up to my mailing list or follow me on the socials for more about her, and when the first book in the series, COLD RECKONING, is coming out.
The indominable Dalton Savage will also be back later this year, with his next small-town investigation. There are some changes coming for his team, which he doesn’t see coming, which will keep you on the edge of your seat. Keep a look out for CRIMSON MOON, already available for preorder on Amazon.
If you’re especially interested in the audiobook versions of my books, please let me know here, via email, or getting in touch via my socials, or hitting reply on my monthly newsletter. There are special deals and promo codes available that you might find useful, as well as trailers, and behind the scenes sneak-peaks.
2024 promises to be an exciting year, and I’m so grateful to be sharing it with you.
