Get it on Amazon!

Forget knowing when to hold ’em.
Knowing when to run is still pretty important, though.

When you’ve got a deck of cards that tilts luck in your favor, you literally can’t lose.

But that doesn’t mean you can win.

James has been hired to find out who’s killing players in the gambling event of the season, a poker tournament that will determine who controls the city’s magical underworld for the next year, in a glamorous underground casino with a rising body count.

Good thing he’s got luck on his side.

But it’s going to take a lot more than that when the killer sets their sights on James and his friends …

 

This book stands on its own as an urban fantasy murder mystery, but it also continues a subplot thread from the previous book, involving the magic cards that James acquired from his former mentor’s personal effects. The rest of the series is also on Amazon in ebook and print.

Writing progress with snow and moose

Also posted at the Facebook group, I made myself this cute progress chart to keep track of where I am in all my various projects for current pen names.

I’m cycling back and forth between my different pen names for the first half of 2022. Right now I’m working on Metal Gladiator while noodling over some of the finer plot points in Keeley #5, and then I’ll switch back to that in February and aim for getting it off to my betas.

I looked out the window just now and the snow was coming down in astonishing thick flakes. It really shows up against the wall of the shop.

We’ve also had some moose hanging around the last few days. You can see SEVEN at once in this astonishing video taken by my husband as he was trying to get to work a couple of days ago!

The one that’s been mainly hanging around the yard lately is a yearling calf. It was out there again today.

I like seeing them around … from a distance!
