Harry James Denton Returns!

For the past several months, I’ve been very quiet on my blog, mainly because–in addition to teaching full-time and the rest of life–I’ve been working to republish the first three Harry James Denton novels under the Spearhead Press imprint.

I’m thrilled to say that the first three novels, Dead Folks’ BluesTorch Town Boogie and Way Past Dead are nearly ready to go! The covers have been redesigned by the wonderful BookGraphics.net. Here are the first two:

And the cover for Way Past Dead will be ready in January.

I’d love to hear what you think. Shoot me a line.

Meantime, more to follow!

 

Harry James Denton Books Update

After several months of waiting, I got a letter over the weekend from Random House. The last of the rights to the Harry James Denton novels have been reverted to me!

Dead Folks’ BluesTorch Town Boogie, and Murder Manual–along with Way Past Dead, Chain of Fools, and Dirty Money–are now free to be republished under the Spearhead Press imprint.

I’m excited, but truthfully, a little bit sad as well. I had a 22-year-run at Ballantine Books/Fawcett/Random House with those books and I’m very grateful for that experience.

But I’m also looking forward to seeing those books available with new covers and to seeing Harry back in action!
