The paperback edition of New Yorked has available for pre-order for a while. I’m excited to see the digital editions are now up, too. I’m a fan of eBooks! So if that’s your preference, harness the power of the atom and have at it.
And if you like to nerd out over weird science stuff like I do, check out this post I did for LitReactor a few years ago about how eBooks do add atomic weight to eReaders.
UPDATE: I had to step aside from this due to a personal matter. You should still go. Everyone on this list is awesome.
Do you live in or around Queens? Want to see me and a bunch of other very talented folks reading crime fiction at your face? Come to this thing.
Thursday, March 26, at ODradeks Coffee House and Wine Bar in Kew Gardens. Starts at 7 p.m. Here’s a map. It’ll be fun.
Cheers to S.W. Lauden, who put the screws to me over at his website, Bad Citizen Corporation. He had some great questions—I hope I gave some good answers back.
I know it’s a little early, but I’m excited, and it’s official, and now you can’t claim that you made other plans that night: The release party for New Yorked will be held at The Mysterious Bookshop on the day of the book’s release, June 9.
This is a place that’s near and dear to my heart. Not just because I’ve been a customer for years, and not just because it’s where my office is (down in the basement)—but because it’s the last crime and mystery specialty store in Manhattan. It’s an institution. And it’s an honor to have my first major book event there.
So come on down. You can respond to the Facebook event here, or just write it down on your calendar like a Luddite. June 9, 6:30 p.m., 58 Warren Street, Manhattan.
There will be booze. Maybe snacks, too. But definitely booze.
If you’re not able to attend but you want a signed copy of the book, order it from Mysterious—I’ll sign any copy sold by and delivered from the store.
I’ve got a story in the latest issue of Thuglit! “Drone” is about two not-very-bright criminals who get the brilliant idea to run drugs by drone. So of course, they drop a kilo of cocaine somewhere over Manhattan. A kilo belonging to a drug dealer named T. Rex.
Won’t you check it out? Available as an eBook and a paperback.
This issue also contains “Alchemy and Atrophy” by Devon Robbins, a winner of LitReactor’s ARREST US! writing challenge.
AND this issue includes stories from folks like Erik Arneson, Bracken MacLeod, Ed Kurtz, and Eric Beetner. Talented gents, all of them.
So, you know, buy a few copies.
UPDATE: All copies are now spoken for. Thanks for playing!
I recently updated the print edition of The Last Safe Place: A Zombie Novella. This is for a few reasons:
1. I wanted to use a different font.
2. I wanted to add in the cover and release information for New Yorked.
3. There was a typo I was burning to fix.
The new edition looks very nice—but now I’m left with a handful of copies of the old version. So I’m going to give them away! I’m sorry you won’t get the new font and will be subjected to a typo, but hey—free book!
There are 10 copies available. Want one? Hit me up on Twitter or on Facebook. Just ask. First ten folks, I’ll send them a copy. United States only. I’ll pick the winners and mail them out, probably later this week.
All I ask in return is that you consider leaving a review of The Last Safe Place on Amazon, or that you consider pre-ordering a copy of New Yorked. Or both, if you’re feeling saucy.
None of that is required. The important thing here is: I’d like to clear some space on my bookshelf, and I’d like to get these into the hands of readers.
Do you have a website or a podcast where you review books?

You can get the book from Edelweiss at this link.
Or you can hit me up! Sadly, I have a limited number of print galleys and they’re already spoken for. But I’ve got e-galleys, too.
