Harry James Denton Returns March 31!
Dead Folks’ Blues, Torch Town Boogie, Way Past Dead EBook Editions Available From All Major Distributors
The first three installments of the Edgar and Shamus-Award winning series featuring Nashville P.I. Harry James Denton will be reissued by Spearhead Press in digital editions on March 31, 2017.
The books will be available from all major EBook distributors, including Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com and Apple.com/iBooks.
The books will be available for pre-order approximately one week before pub date.
“I’m thrilled to see these three books available to mystery fans again,” author Steven Womack said. “Harry was a great character to write and I want to see him back again.”
The last three books in the series–Chain of Fools, Murder Manual, and Dirty Money–will be published in late May. Trade paperback editions will also be available at a date to be announced later.
The Harry James Denton novels were published from 1993-2000. Each of the six installments in the series either won or was nominated for a major mystery award.
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’ Blues, Torch 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!
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’ Blues, Torch 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!
