2012 has been a great year.
I moved to Soho Crime for the fifth Poke Rafferty book, The Fear Artist, and the book earned stars from three of the four publishing trades that give stars to the books they like best. Oh, and it was just named one of the Best Crime Novels of 2012 by Deadly Pleasures magazine and got some of the best reviews of my career.
And then lightning struck my ebook series about the Los Angeles burglar Junior Bender. First, Soho acquired them for publishing. Then the series was bought for film by Lionsgate and for audio by Blackstone. The first book in the series, Crashed, will come out on November 13 of this year, with Little Elvises scheduled for January 2013 and The Fame Thief set for June—three books in less than seven months.
Looking forward to 2013.
