For those of you who have been wondering whether or not I’ve fallen off the face of the earth, I can safely say that I haven’t. 🙂 Been hard at work wrapping up the final title in the Pirates of Perz trilogy: These are Not the Stones You’re Looking For (PoP #3). And after that? I can tell you I already have the next novel in my cozy mystery series planned out and is currently ready to write: Case of the Highland House Haunting (CCF #7).
After that, I’m going to try my hand at another fantasy novel, but this one will be something brand new, meaning it won’t be set in Lentari. What is it, you may ask? The only thing I’ll tell you is that it will have plenty of dragons, riders, magic, and a helluva lot of humor! With that being said, I’ve been pondering what to name the world, and am open to suggestions. Feel free to leave a comment on this post if you have any ideas you’d like to share. If I end up using your suggestion, or basing a name off of your suggestion, I’ll most assuredly give you credit.
The final novel I’m going to try and squeeze out by the end of the year will happen over NaNoWriMo, and it will be another CCF story. That’ll make #8 in the series. I’ve got several more titles planned out, so it should be ready (fingers crossed!) to be released by the end of the year.
That’s it for now! It’s back to Lentari for me. Those pirates haven’t been having a good time lately, and the final showdown is just around the corner!
The next installment of the Corgi Case Files mystery series has just appeared on Amazon’s shelves! Case of the Chatty Roadrunner (Corgi Case Files #6) will see Zack, Jillian, Vance, along with Sherlock and Watson, travel to Phoenix, Arizona, to look into the death of Zack’s late wife, Samantha. Was it an accident, like everyone thought? Or… could it be murder?
Pick up your copy to find out! I’ll post links to the stores as they go live.
For fans of fantasy, the next project I’m working on will be to finish up the Pirates of Perz trilogy. I apologize for the delay. We’ll be catching up with Sarah and Steve in a month or two!
I’m proud to announce Bob Johnson, audio narrator for the first three Corgi Case Files audiobooks has agreed to start work on Case of the Pilfered Pooches (CCF#4). We’re predicting the project should be completed by mid April. Damn, he’s catching up! Which reminds me…
CCF6 is almost done. Should be finished by today or tomorrow. Posse members, are you ready to read?
Next up, it’s high time to wrap up the Pirates of Perz trilogy, and then it’ll be off to the lawless land of Cazel and Doiron’s quest to discover his true heritage. Not sure what I’m talking about? Ask me for a copy of Senthyd. It’s a short story which introduces the rare & unique hybrid creatures just trying to survive. Unless you’re the most rare of all senthyds, like our hero, Doiron. Stay tuned! It’ll be my first ever full-length dark fantasy story!
I hope everyone had a great summer! As for me, it was a blast, only the weather here in Arizona is still incredibly warm. Summer just doesn’t wanna let go of us.
I went to put one of my paperbacks up for a giveaway on Goodreads, which I’ve done countless times, only they are now asking an outrageous amount to do it. Me, being the cheapskate that I am, refused, so no more Goodreads giveaways for me. Therefore, I’ll host my own giveaway, here on my blog. So, if you’re interested in getting a free paperback copy of any of the books that I have currently released, make sure you’re signed up for the newsletter AND leave a comment below (specify which title you’d like). I’ll choose a name at random and, regardless where you’re at, I’ll send the book to you.
Good luck to all who enter!
Just a quick note looking for guinea pigs. I’m trying to build up reviews for my new audiobooks, so if you’re willing to leave a review after you’re done listening (on Audible.com), then I can email you a promo code.
Interested? Head over to my Facebook page and send me a private message. If you don’t have a FB account, then send me an email, using “jmpoole(at)gmail dot com”, and in exchange for a review, you can pick up one of my audiobooks for free!
I have two currently available, with a 3rd ready soon:
- Case of the One-Eyed Tiger (Corgi Case Files #1)
- Case of the Fleet-Footed Mummy (Corgi Case Files #2)
- Lost City (Tales of Lentari #1) – ready soon!
Promo codes will go fast, so if you’re interested, be sure to let me know ASAP!
I thought I’d let you know I’ve got two new titles available at Amazon. The first, available as a pre-order for the end of June, is for you fantasy lovers: The Hammer is Strong With This One (Pirates of Perz #2). It’s the second novel in the Pirates of Perz trilogy and continues on with the pirates venturing below ground to try to swipe a very special hammer from the dwarves.
For mystery fans, the latest excursion to beautiful Pomme Valley, Oregon, is now available at all major retailers: Case of the Muffin Murders (Corgi Case Files #5). Someone has targeted Taylor Adams, PV baker extraordinaire, and is trying to frame her for murder. Good friend Jillian Cooper asks Zack and the corgis to investigate!
Also in the land of PV, I am quite pleased to announce my very first audiobook, Case of the One-Eyed Tiger (Corgi Case Files #1), has been completed and will be available on Audible.com shortly! I’m also excited to tell you that my 2nd audiobook, Lost City (Tales of Lentari #1), is under production, and Case of the Fleet-Footed Mummy (Corgi Case Files #2), is about ready to go under production, too! I hope you all are able to check it out!
I hope you’re having a fantastic spring! Happy reading!
I’m pleased to announce that I have not one, but two audiobooks being produced at the same time! Lost City (Tales of Lentari #1) is predicted to be just over 11 hours long, and Case of the One-Eyed Tiger (Corgi Case Files #1) is predicted to be a little over 7 hours. I’ve already listened to the first 15 minutes from CCF1, and I think you guys are really gonna like it! The first 15 minutes from ToL1 is due in a week or so. Can’t wait to hear that preview, too!
I also wanted to announce that the pre-order for Case of the Muffin Murders (Corgi Case Files #5) is already in place at Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo, etc. Unfortunately, it’s not at Amazon yet, but since I can get a title uploaded and listed within 12 hours, I’m not too concerned. The other retailers are hit and miss when trying to get an exact date to have the book appear. So, a pre-order was necessary.
In the fantasy department, work progresses on the second Pirates of Perz story. The Hammer is Strong With This One will see our unruly band of pirates face off against the dwarves, as ol’ Captain Flinn is determined to get his hands on one powerful hammer. For those of you familiar with my Tales of Lentari series, you’ll know which hammer I’m talking about. Care to see a preview of the new cover? Check it out!

In other news, I have made the transition from Lake Havasu City to Phoenix. My wife has essentially been relocated to the big city for nearly two years, and this was much easier on her. I can essentially write from anywhere, especially where there’s an Internet connection, so voila! Here I am! Livin’ the good life in one big-ass city!
That’s it for now. Gotta get back to Lentari! Those damn pesky pirates are becoming quite the nuisance for the dwarves.
Coming soon to Google Play!
