What's Happening

I changed my mind about releasing T.E.E. — the first novella in the 'Fly on the Wall Detective Agency' series — in January, and have instead set my sights on a June release. Making the books available once a month will take me into December, just in time for a special Christmas announcement.

The six detective agency books featuring the private investigator team of Henry and Nita are part of the Point Jove Mystery Set: CAPTIVITY, BETRAYAL, PAYBACK, and KILLING SUMMER.

For now, I am spending time on promoting books that are already available.

Ask David

AskDavid.com tweeted out an announcement for THE CAJUN GIRL: Part 1 of 2, my psychological suspense novel.

Indie writers, this is a great site to use to gain attention for your books.

Thanks, David!

Free 99 Books

CAPTIVITY, Book 1 in the Backwoods Justice trilogy, is today's highlight on 'Free 99 Books by Indie Authors'.

Get it while it's hot!

Then, check out other books available on this promotional site.
