More procrastination with graphic art has resulted in a 1930s pulp fiction style cover for the first Decker’s War adventure. Here it is, side by side with the actual book cover.
And the upcoming fifth adventure

By the way – the first draft of Black Sword is done… It’s headed for my editor later in July.
Summer in the northern hemisphere will officially arrive twenty-four minutes past midnight on June 21st, but my first sounds of summer have officially been released. I’m talking about No Honor in Death (Siobhan Dunmoore Book 1) in audiobook format. It’s available as of today on
The next two installments of Dunmoore’s adventures, The Path of Duty and Like Stars in Heaven will come out in audiobook format later this summer. Stay tuned – I’ll let you know when that happens.
In other good news, Black Sword (Decker’s War Book 5) is 80% done, so that’s another summer release coming at you. So far, I’m liking my 2017!
The first Siobhan Dunmoore adventure, No Honor in Death will be released in audiobook format on June 20th, 2017, in ten short days! What a nice way to celebrate the start of summer.
So far, only the link to Audible is up, but it’s as real as you can get.
After the wettest and most miserable spring in living memory around here, we’ve had our first true day of warm sunshine. Summer seems to have finally arrived. Of course, the warm weather means little for my routine, if truth be told. I’ll still be walking the dog if it isn’t raining, only earlier in the day, because he doesn’t like walking on asphalt when it gets too hot, and I’ll still get my time at the gym. This year’s renos have been moving apace, and so far I’m keeping faith with my pledge to renew one room a year. I’m actually quite pleased now that I’ve done the workshop and the laundry room, and have made good progress on turning the basement rec room back into a livable space. The amount of junk that’s been trickling out of the house over the last 2-3 weeks is nothing short of miraculous. This coming weekend, our city is holding its semi-annual weekend of ‘put your unwanted stuff on the curb for others to take’. I’ll be filling the end of our driveway, judging by the amount of old furniture and light fixtures I’ve extracted from the basement. I know both Mrs Thomson and my dog are happy with the progress on decluttering Thomson Manor.
And yes, I have been working on Black Sword (Decker’s War Book 5) every day. In fact, the first draft is over 50% done and speed has been ramping up, as it usually does once I reach the half-way mark. I’ve also been giving further thought to the plot of the fifth Dunmoore adventure, tentatively titled Without Mercy. You may have noticed the book cover mockup.
