Happy Pride Month!!
I know I'm late to the party, but I promise to be better organised in the future. :) However, I do come bearing gifts!! Sort of. . .
I am very pleased to announce the arrival of a bouncing baby Death and the Devil novella!!
Meta-State spy Jack Reardon believes it’s all been taken care of. He has his verbal agreement with his boss to “keep Blade happy,” and Jack is more than willing to do his best in that regard. He also has his bargain with Ethan, to keep seeing each other. Small victories, interspersed with exploding bombs, smashed cars and miffed co-workers, all while consorting with an international assassin.
Contract killer Ethan Blade values his security, and Jack’s the first time he’s found that with another person. Wiring a warehouse or outback shelter for safety, no problem. Keeping safe a prickly ex-soldier-turned-spy who’s a magnet for trouble, not so easy. Instead of faceless, nameless jobs, he’s poking his fingers into Jack’s cases—a car bomb gone awry, a Hen party gone wild—much to Jack’s mounting dismay.
They have a deal; neither one of them can seem to stick to it. It’s Jack versus Ethan as the two men learn to navigate their ever-evolving not-a-relationship without losing the benefit of the bargain.
In further (hopefully) good news, this is but the first of three novellas set between book one, Where Death Meets the Devil, and book two, Why the Devil Stalks Death (due end of the year). The novellas are compilations of a series of short stories I wrote to show the development of the relationship between Jack and Ethan. I had fun seeing how these two manage to overcome their differences and issues to be together, and I really hope you all enjoy the journey too!
Bargaining with the Devil will be available from Smashwords (and affiliates) and Amazon on June 30, at a price of US$2.99. However, if you pre-order before the 30th, you'll get it for US$0.99!!
