Snow & Winter 1 year anniversary!

Today is the anniversary of The Mystery of Nevermore being published with DSP Publications. Sebastian Snow and Calvin Winter have been bringing murder, mystery, and true love to readers for one year now. The first two books of this four book series have been made available as ebooks, paperback, audio, and soon to be translated into French.

None of this would have happened without readers like you. So thank you for your support and belief in one sarcastic, crotchety sleuth and his ever frustrated but loving boyfriend.

Auction: one-n-ten LGBT youth center

The one-n-ten LGBT youth center in Phoenix, Arizona was recently the victim of an arson. In order to help them raise funds to recover and continue the incredible work they do with the community, a wonderful PA decided to start an auction and collect donations from authors, artists, bloggers, designers, and more within the community. The bidding has been going strong for a week now, and tomorrow (Sunday, August 20th) will be the last day to try and nab some amazing items and donate to a cause in need at the same time.

I have two small bundles available in the auction, which include signed paperbacks, a Snow's Antique Emporium button, and The Mystery of Nevermore themed jewelry. If you haven't yet checked out the over 100 donations available, go ahead and join the Facebook group here. You can search the photos for all of the items and their latest bids.

Thank you for helping us raise money for one-n-ten!

Excerpt: Southernmost Murder

I'm reading through the proof of Southernmost Murder today. This is it! The final round of production before the novel is packed up and prepared for pre-order. Are you excited? I'm excited. Very excited! I can't wait for you all to meet Aubrey and Jun (although if you read The Mystery of the Curiosities, you have an understanding of Aubrey already.) And since there is some crossover between this book and the Snow & Winter series (don't worry, you don't have to read that series to understand Southernmost) I thought, why not share another little excerpt...
Be sure to add Southernmost to your Goodreads shelf so you can stay updated on the cover reveal and buy links!
“I’m pretty sure even Seb won’t fly down to the Keys to sleuth around for a lost skeleton—crazy as he may be.”
“Let’s keep it that way. I’ve no interest in making a call to—Winter, was it?—to come fetch his wayward assistant.”
Jun knew of Sebastian because his beau, homicide detective Calvin Winter, had been the one asking for FBI intel on a cold case. I didn’t think Jun had an issue with either of them, but you know… federal agent versus a metro detective. It was always a whose-dick-is-bigger contest.

RELEASE Audiobook: The Mystery of the Curiosities

The audio for The Mystery of the Curiosities is here! Book Two in the Snow & Winter series, with Derrick McClain returning as the voices of our heroes, Sebastian and Calvin. The audio is available at Audible, Amazon, and iTunes! You can check out a great sample of Chapter One here.

Blurb: Life has been pretty great for Sebastian Snow. The Emporium is thriving and his relationship with NYPD homicide detective Calvin Winter is everything he's ever wanted. With Valentine's Day around the corner, Sebastian's only cause for concern is whether Calvin should be taken on a romantic date. It's only when an unknown assailant smashes the Emporium's window and leaves a peculiar note behind that all plans get pushed aside in favor of another mystery.
Sebastian is quickly swept up in a series of grisly yet seemingly unrelated murders. The only connection tying the deaths together are curiosities from the lost museum of P.T. Barnum. Despite Calvin's attempts to keep Sebastian out of the investigation, someone is forcing his hand, and it becomes apparent that the entire charade exists for Sebastian to solve. With each clue that brings him closer to the killer, he's led deeper into Calvin's official cases.
It's more than just Sebastian's livelihood and relationship on the line - it's his very life.
