Good morning, everybody! I'm pleased to announce that Queen of the Night, the final book of the Revanche Cycle, is live. The ebook is out now, and the paperback version should be available in a couple of days. Audio is coming soon; Susannah Jones is going into the recording studio in just a couple of weeks.

This is a pretty special one. True, it's a less-popular story compared to the Daniel Faust and Harmony Black novels, and a departure from my usual style, but it holds a place in my heart -- and this is the first time I've had to actually finish a series, wrapping everything up and coming in for a landing. I learned so much in the creation of the Revanche Cycle, from start to finish, and it's experience I'll be happy to bring to my other series. I hope you enjoy it! I'll warn you, this one's kind of a rough ride (but then again, if you've read the first three, you already know that...)

If you haven't read 'em, that's cool too. You might be more interested to hear that I'm almost done with the first draft of The Castle Doctrine, the sixth Daniel Faust novel, and we're still on track for an October release. Daniel's headed for his final showdown with the Chicago Outfit and Damien Ecko -- at the same time, no less -- and the situation is explosive. Literally. There are explosives involved. Once that's done, it's back to work on House of Wolves, third in the Harmony Black series. I don't have a firm release date for that one yet, beyond my publisher wanting the manuscript ASAP (it's outlined and the rough draft is halfway done), but I should know more in a couple of months.

I hope you're having a great summer! Stay safe, stay cool, and I'll talk to you soon.
