AUDIOBOOK: The Celtic Phoenix in Production


REBECCA REED just signed on to read the audiobook version of The Celtic Phoenix. She is the perfect woman for the novel as she has a repertoire of great character voices. Women readers are a rare breed, and MX Publishing and I are lucky to engage her. I nearly gave up finding a woman reader, but held out as The Celtic Phoenix is, in some ways, “a woman’s book” -- with two female protagonists in addition to Holmes, and a powerful female antagonist. More importantly, it has a plot that revolves around women’s rights and issues.


Hopefully the audiobook will be available before Christmas, but you can buy the book now at many on line stores -- but not Amazon yet. The official launch date, and Amazon debut is December 4.  BTW: You can get a 10% discount and free shipping now from THEBOOKDEPOSITORY.COM  Would love to hear from you after you’ve read it.

Just in time for Christmas!

My latest/newest novel is in the production pipeline at MX Publishing in London. Scheduled to launch in early December -- just in time for Christmas.

The story revolves around three very different and very powerful women -- Tessa Wiggins being one of them. She made a cameo appearance in my first book, and grew up to play a supporting role in my last novel. The Celtic Phoenix puts her center-stage with Sherlock Holmes. Stay tuned for updates leading to the launch.

A new novel is coming this fall.

Tessa Wiggins, a grown-up member of Sherlock Holmes’s irregular army, joins the “me-to” movement by joining forces with the legendary detective to tell the story of The Celtic Phoenix.
Mystery becomes mayhem when a ghastly package arrives at the cottage of Sherlock Holmes, luring him out of his retirement refuge to battle forces arising out of a time before England was a country—when the Celts were fighting for their survival.
Historically accurate, The Celtic Phoenix is steeped in the primeval and enigmatic culture of the ancient Celts who, more than three thousand years ago, conquered and ruled much of central and western Europe. It was a time when human beings’ connection with the Natural world was deep-rooted . . . when people walked in the olde ways . . . when women were the equals to men as warriors, priests, and poets. This is the story of three women who rose from the ashes of their past like fearsome phoenixes and shook the rational foundations upon Sherlock Holmes had built his career and life.

Home Town REALLY Support Local Authors

I live about 35 miles from Trinidad, Colorado, but it's the closest town and (consequently) my hometown. The local Carnegie Library has a great program that supports local authors called . The library offers FREE BOOKS to folks who sign-up and commit to coming to the monthly gatherings. I'm scheduled on Friday, August 25, at 5:30.

There is a lot to like about this program, but one aspect I appreciate it that the library makes a special effort to bring in other local writers, and folks hoping to be a published writer to discuss the craft.  My hat's off to Mallory Pillard, head librarian and Tom Potter who handles PR and communication.

If you're in the area, get your free copy of Irregular Lives and come to the event.
