"Why?" you cry to the heavens, shaking your fists at the sky.
Because awesomeness has exploded all over the place.
The ink is barely dry on the contract, but I have been graciously invited to write an upcoming installment of The Dead Man series created by Lee Goldberg and William Rabkin. You might know their work from Monk, Psych, Nero Wolfe, and other fantastic tv shows and books. And later this year, Lee is teaming up with Janet Evanovich for a brand new series. How cool is that? If the Kevin Bacon game became the Janet Evanovich game, I'd be one degree away!
So what's The Dead Man about? It is a bi-monthly series of action adventure novellas, with just a little taste of horror to keep you up at night. Each installment is penned by an author you know and love * cough* * pointing at self * tracing the journey of a man who should be dead against the face of evil. Which is probably what you could have figured out from the title of the book. Smarty pants.
I'm so stoked to be a part of this team and honored to be invited. Look for it sometime in 2013! And in the meantime, get caught up on all the books that have come before!
