New Release--Finally!

I'll bet some of you thought I'd fallen off the planet. Over the past three or four years, I've been releasing a new book about every 6 to 8 weeks, and now all of a sudden I dropped out of sight for months. Well, I've been busy--moving. This summer in AZ was too brutally hot, so my husband and I moved to Kanab, Utah. Kanab sits at 5000 feet and is easily 10 to even 20 degrees cooler than where we were. It's a charming little town set smack amid red rock canyons, and is close to Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Lots of amazing places for us to explore.


But during all that time of packing, moving, and unpacking, I left Sam and Lacey working frantically to solve serial murders in the tony community of Huntington Beach, California. Luckily the pair of paranormal investigators were up to the challenge of not only pursuing the murderer, but staying on track even as I was busy elsewhere. Now, finally, I am happy to announce the release of Book 29, Execution Walk. Here's the scoop:

On a lazy morning, paranormal investigators Sam Firecloud and Lacey Fitzpatrick take some rare time off and head for the beach—Huntington Beach, to be exact. What they don’t expect is to wander onto the scene of a brutal murder committed the night before. When Sam’s initial impressions are surreptitiously recorded by TV cameras at the same time that a local psychic named Anubis makes startling claims about the murder, news journalists smell a ratings bonanza—the battle of the psychics. All Sam and Lacey want to do is stop the killer from killing again, which turns out to be more complex than they’d imagined—especially with the annoying distraction of being partnered with Anubis.

Sound interesting? I think so. It's Sam and Lacey doing what they do best. To celebrate the new release, the ebook of Execution Walk is only 99 cents through November 1, 2020. If you still haven't been introduced to the ghostbusting pair, Ghost Walk, Book 1, is always only 99 cents. And, I'm happy to report, I've started working on Book #30.

In the meantime, my wonderful narrators have been busy, as well. The first 10 books in the Lacey Fitzpatrick and Sam Firecloud Mystery Series are now on audio, with 11 soon to come. In addition, both books of the No Time for Travis time-travel series are now on audio. You can see all my audio books here. If any of my audio books look tantalizing to you, let me know. I have free promo codes to give away, and you can download and listen to any (or all) of those books for free! Just shoot me an email and let me know what books you'd like to have and I will send you the codes. I have codes for both US and UK available.

I hope you all have a safe and scary-fun Halloween. What could be better for Halloween than ghosts and more ghosts? After all, it is the day when the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest. And when those ghosts become troublesome, or in need of redemption, who you gonna call? Why, Sam and Lacey, of course! 

Happy Halloween!

New Release: Stone Walk

Are you ready for summer? It's almost here and I know we're all hoping for some normalcy, for some relaxing days in warm sunshine after being closed up all spring. I don't think we're out of the woods yet with the virus, but it would be nice to be able to recapture some of the usual routines we've done without for so many months. Still staying safe, of course.


Looking for that perfect book to read on the beach or at the park? (For my friends in the Southern Hemisphere, how about a good book to read sitting by the fire with a cup of tea?) I just might have a suggestion for you. Stone Walk, Book 28 of the Lacey Fitzpatrick and Sam Firecloud Mystery Series is out, just in time for the Memorial Day weekend. Here's the deal:

Who knew there was a Scottish castle hiding on a high promontory over Monterey, California? Lacey Fitzpatrick and medium Sam Firecloud certainly didn’t; not until they were called in to investigate ghostly manifestations. The Gold Rush-era castle is being restored as a museum, but the most important plans have been derailed due to the refusal of frightened workers to trespass onto the outraged spirit’s territory. When Sam and Lacey attempt to unravel the truth behind the angry ghost, they are plunged into a grisly, hidden culture of unspeakable rituals.

Sound like it might give you chills on a warm afternoon? It could. If you want to find out, the eBook is on sale for just 99 cents through May 31, 2020. And of course, Ghost Walk, Book 1, is always just 99 cents.

New Release: Night Walk

How's everybody holding up out there? Getting used to this low-key, stay safe, stay at home stuff? It's heartening to see the numbers slowing down, the curve flattening, perhaps even falling off a little. When I have ventured out, I've noticed that probably 95% of the people I see are wearing some sort of mouth and nose covering, so that's good. We're adjusting. We'll get through this. My heart still aches for the families that have lost loved ones, but for those of us left behind, we will meet this challenge and learn from it. Grow from it. I'm sure of that.
So in the meantime, Sam and Lacey have been busy, as always. Luckily their universe doesn't have a pandemic in it, so they can concentrate on their specialty--ghosts. Here's the story behind Night Walk, Book 27 of the series:

When medium Sam Firecloud first hears about an Amber Alert on the Navajo reservation, he is stunned to realize the missing girl is his own young cousin. He and his partner, Lacey Fitzpatrick, rush to the scene in an attempt to help find the girl, aided by Sam’s grandfather Ben. When the Fireclouds are dismissed by the FBI agents that are working the case by standard means, Sam takes measures into his own hands, and finds the pathway before him leads into the depths of the supernatural…  and death.

If you need a good story to pass the time while you're stuck at home, this just might be it. Night Walk is only 99 cents thru May 10, 2020.

Again you'll notice the new cover layout. My cover designer, Alex of The Cover Genies, is working hard at transforming all the old covers at the same time that he's creating the new covers. It's a process, but we're getting there. There are now four updated covers, the first two books, Ghost Walk and Skin Walk, and the latest two, Heart Walk and Night Walk. They look pretty cool all lined up together, don't they? I'm really happy with them. Definitely easier to read and you can tell right off which number book they are.

Also... the audio book of Castle Walk is now available. If you'd like a free promo code in order to download the audio book for free, just let me know if you need a US code or a UK code. In addition, there are still codes available for the first 8 books, as well. You want 'em, you got 'em. Just tell me which one(s) and what country code. 
And, as always, if you haven't "met" Sam and Lacey yet, Book 1, Ghost Walk, is always just 99 cents. 

In the meantime, stay home, stay safe, stay sane.
