Official Publication Day is Almost Here!

And now for a shameless self-promotion: Tomorrow, May 15, is the official publication date of The Poisoned Penman, the second short novel in our Enoch Hale trilogy. It's been available in some places for some time now, but now it's available everywhere.

I like the summary by Roger Johnson in The District Messenger, newsletter of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, whom we met at Speedy's (London) in 2012:

Last year I greatly enjoyed The Amateur Executioner, the first collaboration between Dan Andriacco and Kieran McMullen. It’s a pleasure now to welcome Enoch Hale’s second case, The Poisoned Penman (MX; 15 May; £7.99), which begins in 1922 with the unexpected death of Langdale Pike, poisoned while taking tea with Hale. Pike’s specialism, you’ll remember from ‘The Three Gables’, was society gossip, but he seemed to have something more important on his mind. Hale’s investigation, helped by a clever advertising copywriter named Dorothy L Sayers, brings him into contact again with TS Eliot and Winston Churchill, and introduces him to GK Chesterton, Horatio Bottomley and Rudolph Valentino. Not unsurprisingly, both Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes have an important part to play.
The Poisoned Penman is available for pre order from all good bookstores including  Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK, and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository . In ebook format it is in Amazon Kindle and Apple iBooks(iPad/iPhone).
