Miles Franco is back! The third book in my hardboiled urban fantasy series will be available in ebook and paperback from December 4th.
Keep your eyes open; for the first few days, you’ll be able to snag a copy of the book at a huge discount. But it’s limited time only, so get in quick!
If you haven’t read any of my Miles Franco books before, there’s never been a better time to start! The first book in the series, The Man Who Crossed Worlds, is now available as a FREE ebook on Amazon and other platforms! (If it’s not showing up as free for you at Amazon, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a copy.)
To celebrate the impending release, I’m also revamping the series with new covers. Check them out below, and then read the blurb for The Man Who Walked in Darkness.
Every man has a limit. Miles is about to find his.
For the first time in his whole miserable life, freelance Tunneler Miles Franco finally has his shit together. He’s left behind his history of violence and interdimensional smuggling to take on consulting work with the Bluegate Police Department. He’s collecting regular paychecks, he’s paying tax, he’s even going on blind dates.
But when his friend, Detective Vivian Reed, comes to him for help, his peaceful life is shattered. Vivian’s sister has been kidnapped. They have issued no ransom. No demands. They don’t want money. They only want revenge.
If Miles and Vivian are going to get her sister back, they’ll have to abandon everything they’ve worked for. There will be no room for law or conscience where they’re going. Miles is returning to the mean streets that made him.
And there will be no coming back.
P.S.: If you’ve ever reviewed one of my books before, either on your blog, Goodreads, or a storefront like Amazon, I’d love to give you a free review e-copy of The Man Who Lost Everything (as well as the earlier books if you haven’t read them). Just email me at email@example.com and let me know you want a review copy.
If you’ve been meaning to leave a review for one of my books and haven’t gotten around to it, you can post one any time before the end of December and I’ll still be delighted to send you a review copy of The Man Who Lost Everything. It doesn’t matter whether the review is positive or negative, so just be honest!
Nominations for the 2015 Sir Julius Vogel Awards, New Zealand’s premier science fiction and fantasy awards, are now open!
