I declare, India and I are having a bang-up time introducing ourselves to U.K. readers. Here's an interview I did for Novelicious, a fun and funny website dreamed up by some U.K. writers. I may have had a drink or two while answering these questions.

Yikes (and a German cover)

Once again, I have been shamefully lax at posting any updates. India would not be pleased and would no doubt berate me for my indolence. I'm sure she would be an avid user of social media. Photos of Lotus House on Instagram. Sarcastic digs at politicians on Twitter. And the daily specials available at the brothel on Facebook.

So, here's a peek at the cover for the German edition of India Black and the Widow of Windsor, with its new title, Danger to the Throne. At least, I think that's the new title. Any German speakers out there who can translate?

Across the Pond

The first and second books in the India Black series were released in the U.K. last week. Here's a review from the other side of the pond.

Tarts Or Torts?

Here's a link to an article I did for the Harrogate Festival magazine in the U.K. Did I mention that I love my publicist at Titan?

Not that kind

I mean SHOTS Crime and Thriller Ezine, a UK based digital magazine devoted to, uh, crime and thriller writing. The publicist at Titan, my UK publisher, arranged a guest post there for me, and here's the link.

I've just sent off an article to the publicist which will appear in Your Booked, the online magazine associated with Britain's premier crime writing convention. Very exciting, if a little weird. I'm introducing India to a new group of readers and revisiting the topics I wrote and talked about when India made her debut in the U.S., including what motivated me to write the books in the first place. It's been fun making an excursion down memory lane.

Epic Costume

I'm not a fan of dressing pets in costumes, but this is pure genius.

The Antidote to Winter

Here's a very nice review from Bev over at My Reader's Block. That took some of the sting out of this dreadful winter. More UK covers coming soon.

$%^#@ Spring

Yesterday. Rain. Sleet. Snow. Too depressed to blog. Losing will to live.

Across the Pond

The British publisher has finalized the cover for India Black and the Shadows of Anarchy (sorry, I just have the cover from the Amazon UK page at this point).

Hmmm. That face is a little sweet for India.

Mord im Lotushaus

More exciting news for me. The German edition of India Black is coming out soon. The German publishers opted to add an additional title, Mord im Lotushaus, which appears to translate into Murder in Lotus House. That's cool with me.  And here's the cover, which I love. Sexy!

Keeping It Fresh

Here's a short guest post I did over at Lori's blog (you do read her, don't you?).

I Haven't Been Found Out Yet

Waits for the echoes to die away.

Well, I've been gone for awhile. No particular reason except that life has been so quiet that there's been little of note happening. But that's changing, as India Black and the Gentleman Thief will be released on February 4th and is available for pre-order now.

But that's not the only news I have. The India Black Series has been sold to a British publisher.Titan Books will release the first two titles in April. I received the covers for these last week, and here they are:

Titan is an interesting company with an emphasis on comics, graphic novels, historical and adventure fiction, film and television tie-ins, science fiction and detective novels. After looking at their list of representative authors and books, I think it will be a great fit for India.

Finally, RT Book Reviews has the first review of Gentleman Thief. Unfortunately, you have to subscribe to the magazine to read it, or wait another few weeks when they will make it available to the general public. I can tell you that it received four and a half stars and has been designated a TOP PICK.
