Absent Without Leave

Ok, I will admit that I have been shirking my duties for a while. I've been AWOL on my blog, and I'm sorry about that. I've been busy, not only with writing, but with my job as well. Over the past couple of months, I've been out to San Francisco, where I delivered three presentations at an IT conference. I recently returned from Barcelona after delivering another three presentations at an IT conference over there. There was also a brief visit to Atlanta (again, work related). As you can see, it has been bit crazy.

Now, for the good news. My new novel is done. Beware of Greeks is the title, and I am very excited about it. The cover artwork is just about finished, and I'll be revealing it on the my blog in the next few days. I'll post the date and time for the artwork reveal this weekend. So, what is the new novel about? Here's a quick teaser.
____________________

When three corpses are found at a construction site in Philadelphia, homicide detective Samantha Ballard is called in to investigate the bizarre deaths. The withered bodies dressed in modern day clothing seem more like a hoax than murder. But, as more mummified corpses begin to appear throughout the city of brotherly love, Samantha must embark on an investigation that takes her beyond the realm of all that she thought was possible.

Jack Allyn, a radio DJ who thinks his career is in a downward spiral, has his world rocked by the sudden death of his neighbor and friend under unusual circumstances. As Jack begins to search for answers, he’s finds himself coming face-to-face with creatures straight out of ancient mythology. 

With his life in danger, Jack must join forces with Samantha to save the city from a centuries old evil that has returned to wreak havoc on Philadelphia. But with the odds stacked against them, can Jack and Samantha save the city of brotherly love from a trio of deadly femme fatales with a sinister purpose?
