With the release of The Queen of Smiles less than a month away, you can expect things to pick up around here again, with sample chapters, release day roundups, and the like. But the new book’s release is far from the only thing that’s coming down the pipeline this season!
Here’s what’s in store, starting with tomorrow’s somewhat surprise audiobook release and then proceeding all the way to Christmas…
It’s almost October in what has been both a very long and very short year, and, per a tradition established all the way back in the before-days of 2019, that means I should have a new book coming out in a month or two. I’ve already shared a few rough snippets in the magical land of social media, but today we’re going to do something different.
A title reveal? Well, yes.
A cover reveal? Yeah, that too.
But before we get to any of that, I’ll be answering questions from the most insufferable of interviewers…
That’s right: I’m interviewing myself, and I will not rest until I have all the dirt on this new book and the man who is allegedly writing it.

I know, I know… I can hear you ask: “What new series starter? Did I miss a release? Am I on the Naughty List now?”
I’ve had several people reach out to me recently to make sure I was still alive… which is always a strong indicator that it’s been far too long since my last update. This month’s post will be a short one, because, as you’ll see, things are really busy. Still, May has one day left and…
Today is apparently an audiobook sort of day. I am thrilled to announce that the One Tin Soldier audiobook is officially live and available on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes!
There’s nothing like a new release to make the month fly by, is there? It feels like just yesterday that I was releasing The Italian Screwjob, but it’s already been more than two weeks, and April is now knocking on the door, probably with a pie ready to throw. Before that inevitable (and inevitably unfunny) pie to the face, I wanted to do a quick retrospective on the release. Sales reports, reviews, progress updates, and a tenative two-year publishing schedule… let’s see what’s up and what’s next.
Beware the Ides of March It’s all too fitting that The Italian Screwjob, a book centered around the murder of a ruler in Rome, should be releasing on the Ides of March. I’m happy to announce that the book I sometimes describe as John Smith Goes to Italy and Eats Spaghetti is now available! The…
