Bram Farrell and J.B. Dane fighting for the keyboard here and our subject is the 2nd book in The Raven Tales series.
It started out being called RAVEN HEART...in fact, we've been calling it that since the final word was keyed in around a year and a half ago. However, a recent stroll through the titles on Amazon showed that, well, other folks like that title, too, and slapped it on their already released books.
Ergo, we looked up RAVEN'S HEART...same curse. Like it isn't bad enough that everyone and their tribe uses the word Raven. Some people even have it as a first name, and they're authors! Geez!
We went back to the drawing board, looking for something that suited the storyline and the nasty things Bram has to deal with (J.B. just sits back and snickers over them), but a title that hadn't been used by anyone already...
HANDS OFF IF YOU'RE THINKING OF STEALING IT!
...and thus the title of the second novel is...wait for it...
THE RAVEN AND THE CURSE
So why did we call this post "Heart Burn"? Well, 'cause it's the name of the curse, naturally.
Now, if you're a reader who can't wait to get your hands on the next volume, well, this is going to sound like a curse to you.
Burns and Lea Books aren't letting it out of the starting gate until January 2021.
Why? Well, because the action kicks off on...
That's why we gave you a picture of a flaming rose, though no roses were harmed in the spinning of this story.
Unless J.B. forgot to change the water. Fortunately for any roses, no one gave her any. Not even Bram. The selfish bastard. He gave some to his new secretary though.
Although there are months and months and months and months between now and when THE RAVEN AND THE CURSE is available, there will be further prequel stories showing up, following cases Bram, as the sole investigator for Raven Investigations back in the fictional world, worked before he had that change of location as recounted in RAVEN'S MOON.
We'll also kick off a...
BETWEEN THE BOOKS...
...group of novella/short stories The first one takes place at the Thanksgiving that falls between RAVEN'S MOON and THE RAVEN AND THE CURSE. We'll tease you more about that in the future.
For now, if you haven't dived into the hassels caused by the various...
PARANORMAL / SUPERNATURAL / LEGENDARY MISCREANTS
...living in Detroit -- either on one side of the fictional line or the other -- take a spin through the prequels and then bask in the glow of a full moon (hopefully without turning into a were) with RAVEN'S MOON.
Want a free sample of what you'll be getting into? Then look at the serialized prequel novel currently in progress here in the blog. It's easy to spot. It has RAVEN in the title.
We're not against you actually PURCHASING any of the currently available stories, be they prequel novellas or the full length novel. If so inclined, all you have to do is head to...
