A boy vanishes. But not just any boy.

1899 years after the Catastrophe, Bridges is owned by the Mob. As the city's steam-driven infrastructure fails, a new faction rises: the Red Dogs.

Jacqueline Spadros is haunted by her best friend Air's death, killed as he tried to stop her sale to the Spadros crime syndicate ten years ago. Now in an unwilling marriage to the city's biggest drug lord, she secretly runs a small-time private eye business to earn enough money to escape.

Air's little brother disappears from his back porch. And now someone is following Jacqui.

New cover for The Jacq of Spades!

The Jacq of Spades has a new cover!

This cover is done by Damonza.com - and I think it turned out beautifully!

It's been uploaded to the retailers in ebook and paperback formats, with hardcover and audio to come soon. As funds permit, I'll be changing out the entire main series.

I really liked my old covers, but I feel that with these new ones I'll be able to attract more new readers to the series!

If you'd like to order signed paperback or hardcover copies using the original cover, I have some available in limited quantities.

I'll let you know when I have signed print copies available with the new covers - or just contact me to pre-order.

Coming soon!

If you're a fan of my Red Dog Conspiracy series, here's the story you've been waiting for.

What does it have to take to change who you are?

Donald Kerston's life up to now could only be described as a nightmare. But what he wakes up to suddenly becomes much worse.

Struggling for his very survival, for the first time he finds friends and a future - only to be confronted with the one thing he didn't ever want to face: his own terrible past.

Gutshot: The Catastrophe is a 17,000 word novella which takes place 1899 years before The Jacq of Spades: Part 1 of the Red Dog Conspiracy.

This is how the world ends. For one man, this is how it begins.

Pre-order now - just 99 cents.

Amazon ~ iTunes ~ Kobo ~ Nook ~ and more.

Releases April 2nd.

And that's not all!

Not only am I revising The King of Hearts: Part 4 of the Red Dog Conspiracy, this month, I'm writing the first draft of Drawing Thin: A Companion to the Red Dog Conspiracy.

A police constable's obsession with finding a missing boy and the murders surrounding his disappearance throws him into a collision with the city's ruling crime family.

You'll find out much more about Constable Paix Hanger, the police, the way Bridges really works (you honestly think Jacqui knows?), and important information about other characters that Jacqui has no idea of.

Drawing Thin will be part of the Death and Damages murder mystery box set, coming out in November. Watch for it!

Until next time!

Patty
