A process that began thirty months ago is about to head into a grand new adventure. My debut novel, Litany of Secrets, is set for release! The ebook version will be available the week of July 1st for Kindle, NOOK, and iBook users. The print paperback will emerge on August 1st.
If you are looking for some great summertime reading, if you want a great story with an unlikely protagonist, and if you are intrigued by a mystery which displays both the redemptive and destructive nature of love, Litany of Secrets delivers the goods.
I won't give away the ending (duh!), but the back cover summary should suffice:
In rural eastern Missouri sits St. Basil's Seminary, an idyllic center of reflection and study and peace.
But when the sudden, suspicious death of a visiting priest shakes the community to the core, Detective Cameron Ballack is called to investigate the matter.
Facing hardship and tragedy of his own, and confined to a wheelchair, Ballack finds that the seemingly devoted members of St. Basil's have skeletons in their own closets. And when one murder follows another, Ballack must redouble his efforts to cut through the clouds of past sins before death strikes once more, this time with Ballack in its sights.
We'll have more here in the days ahead, but for now I wanted all of you to know that we're almost there!
