Editor's Choice ~ Blake is The New BLACK!






I have managed to discover another candidate for my coveted Editor’s Choice award.

Although I have only awarded the accolade to a mere handful of pukka new authors over the last two years, I find myself – yet again – lauding the work of the irrepressible Russell Blake and his new series, which chronicles the ups and downs of a Hollywood private investigator and his less than ‘useful others’.

Ladies, gentlemen, and hermaphrodites, I give you BLACK – well, actually, Blake penned this hilarious and well-furnished series, but I have been hanging on RB’s coat tails since heralding him as the ‘new black’ in authors after reading The Geronimo Breach back in 2011 (see my articles: Author Finds ~ Russell Blake, Paradigm Author 2012 ~ and What a Difference a Year Makes...).

And connections have disclosed that Blake has even more surprises in store in the near future – so watch this space... but first go out and grab the BLACK series and find out why Blake has become the most ascendant and prolific author during the last two years.

*Update* Wow... Blake has been featured in the Wall St. Journal and his surprise is now out > (co-writing with Clive Cussler!)



*Breaking News!* The Clive Cussler and Russell Blake adventure The Eye of Heaven is available for pre-order HERE! Orders are already flooding in for this collaboration and I fully expect that Cussler fans will warm quickly to Russell Blake's contributions to characterization, description and interaction.

Baffin Island: Husband-and-wife team Sami and Remi Fargo are on a climate-control expedition in the Arctic, when to their astonishment they discover a Viking ship in the ice, perfectly preserved—and filled with pre–Columbian artifacts from Mexico.


How can that be? As they plunge into their research, tantalizing clues about a link between the Vikings and the legendary Toltec feathered serpent god Quetzalcoatl—and a fabled object known as the Eye of Heaven—begin to emerge. But so do many dangerous people. Soon the Fargos find themselves on the run through jungles, temples, and secret tombs, caught between treasure hunters, crime cartels, and those with a far more personal motivation for stopping them. At the end of the road will be the solution to a thousand-year-old mystery—or death. Click HERE for more details.



*Update* And if you need any more confirmation that "Stef wouldn't steer you wrong" take a look at this article from the hallowed British newspaper, The Times!

*Update* Click HERE to listen to RB as he bares all in his latest candid radio interview.


                         


I’m sure you’d all love to have RB visit here again with his ruminations and observations, so I will see if I can ply him with tequila sometime next year and get him to help me put the world to rights in a random (and drunken) article about Life, the Universe, and coffee vendors.

Oh, and if you want a great action series for Kindle, I strongly recommend the JET series ~ preview and purchase from Amazon. It's also available at all leading distributors, of course.
