Today I'm bringing you two different mystery stories for you to sink your teeth into. Can you guess whodunit?

CLAIMING MOON by John Peters

People are dying in Southwest Virginia, their bodies ripped open, each missing a vital organ. The only clue? Year-old, dead human tissue left at each crime scene. Det. Frank Taliaferro is on the case, but he has to deal with a pesky reporter from the local newspaper – a woman who begins to get under his skin in more than one way. Murder, an ancient evil, and … romance?

A Shot in the Bark: A Dog Park Mystery by C.A. Newsome

Would you recognize a serial killer if you met one? Talked to one every day? Artist Lia Anderson doesn’t, and neither does anyone else who frequents the Mount Airy Dog Park. But a violent death brings Detective Peter Dourson into the close-knit group, and he is convinced someone is not who they seem. As the investigation uncovers secrets, Lia struggles to cope with warring emotions and a killer watches.

#Review - Big Deal V2: Lesson In Betrayal

The boys are back in mad, manic and mysterious as ever.

I love these books. I really do. They're old-fashioned British farce, comedy crime capers of the first order, featuring a cast of crazy crooks you can't help but love.

Today I'm bringing you two books with very different takes on action and adventure.

The Journals of Jacob and Hyde by Randall J. Morris is a whole new take on a Victorian classic. Jake is just a normal kid who enjoys reading bedtime stories. But there may be more truth in the legend than he realised.

The stories became shockingly real when he discovered that he was a descendant of Dr. Jekyll and that he had his own Mr. Hyde living inside him. Driven by a desire to do good, he attempts to hunt down and kill the remaining Hyde monsters. Can he finish off the onslaught of Hyde monsters and keep the girl he loves safe from their retaliation?

SODIUM:1 Harbinger by Stehen Arsenault is pure sci-fi gold.

In 1957, a group of wilderness adventurers are confronted with the unexpected. They are forced to defend themselves against an unworldly enemy. Will man's first encounter with aliens force them to run or will they stand and fight? This is the first thriller in the SODIUM series. Follow along as the unwitting group determine their own fate.

That's soooooooo gay...

No, this isn't a rant! I'm confining them to from now on. Instead, I want to think about the way our language evolves. I think we all know that 'gay' has developed pejorative connotations that every campaigner and their dog is fighting as hard as they can. How many times have you heard a teenager describe as 'gay' something that's a little bit crap? Annoying, isn't it?

But I think it's pointless trying to stem that movement. This is language: it's a fluid, dynamic, living thing. Stifling it will kill it.

Yes, before some squatter decided to steal my name I snaffled

This lil ole blog of mine has served me well, and I will continue to update it in the future, talking all about books, publishing and the wicked ways of Amazon, so fear not!

On my new site I will be waxing lyrical about queer theory and politics, my own writing, and anything else that happens to take my fancy or else gets my goat. I hope you'll join me over there!
