Firewalker (Book 2 of Stormwalker) Out, and Captain Lacey

I'm excited to annouce the release of Firewalker, Book 2 of the Stormwalker series done under my Allyson James persona. This series is set in the American Southwest and follows Janet Begay, a half-Navajo Stormwalker who solves crimes with her sidekick biker boyfriend, and a cast of colorful characters (including a bisexual magic mirror). I have a page dedicated to this series:

For reasons I don't understand, the publisher has labeled these books romance, but they are not romance. I wrote them to be pretty straightforward urban fantasy/mystery. So if you enjoy Tony Hillerman, Charlaine Harris, or Nevada Barr, please give Stormwalker a look.

Captain Lacey mysteries: I am in the process of republishing the Captain Lacey novels on Kindle. My timetable is to have book one up by Feb, and the others to follow each month. (I have a gorgeous new cover for Hanover Square, which I will post as release time nears).

I am doing this with an eye to continuing the series. This series pretty much got dumped by the publisher, and I've been struggling to revive it ever since. It's been a hard row to hoe, and I appreciate the ongoing supportive messages about the books. I will get Book 7 and more out there one way or the other! Stay tuned.

Glad to hear about Captain Lacey to come out on Kindle, as I never was able to find the complete series, had to try and win them from you, lol.

I am so glad to hear that you will continue with the Captain Lacey series. I just recently read my first one and I really liked it. I just finished Firewalker and I LOVED it! But I am afraid to say this, I felt the romance...I know you didn't write it that way, but that is what it is to me. A romance first then an Urban fantasy. I am just sayin'. :-) Keep up the awesome work! KeriM

I absolutely love the Captain Lacey series. Found them all on the ABE Books website. Please do whatever you can to keep publishing them!

The publishers who dropped the Captain Lacey series are idiots. The books are well-written, engaging, and so entertaining. We should all have as much honor in our dealings as Lacey. Please don't stop writing them. I hate e-readers, but I would even buy a Kindle if you are only continuing the series there!

Thank you all for your support! Because of you, I refuse to give up Captain Lacey altogether. :-)
