I was thrilled to learn that Death Below Stairs received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly! No easy feat! I am pleased the reviewer enjoyed it. It begins: “Set in 1881, this exceptional series launch from Ashley (the Shifters Unbound series) introduces Kat Holloway, a brilliant cook employed in the lavish London home of Lord Rankin.”

If you have not read the sorta prequel novella to this series, A Soupçon of Poison you can do so for free in the e-book version of the anthology, Past Crimes:

Meet Kat Holloway, the 29-year-old cook working in the lavish houses of Victorian London, Daniel McAdam the mysterious man who appears without warning in Kat’s life, his 15-year-old son, James, and other important people in Kat’s life. She’s accused of murder and must work to prove her innocence, with Daniel’s help.

This series is a labor of love–I hope you enjoy it!

            

Shifters 

I’m working on a novella in the Shifters Unbound series, which will be (very) short and be available at first in a boxed set called Taming the Shifter, which will be out in October. That should go on pre-order sometime in July or August.

The tentative title of my story: Tiger Striped. (Which, as you might guess, will feature Tiger). I’ll bring it out on its own as soon as the agreed-upon time to keep it in the boxed set is over (probably February.)

I’m working on a couple more books in the Shifters series as well–The next published by Berkley will be Midnight Wolf, and feature Angus, the New Orleans wolf Shifter from Red Wolf. You’ll see the NOLA Shiftertown as well as catch up with other characters.

I’ll also have an announcement about the Shifters series once everything is hammered out at my publisher (No, I am NOT ending the series. Not yet. Too many stories left to tell and story arcs to finish).

I’m working on a couple of super secret projects–just thought I’d tease you with that :-)  … More when I can talk about them.

Next on my plate besides the Shifter novella and novel: Stormwalker book, Mackenzie book, then Riding Hard: Ross. I’ll let you know when pre-orders are ready. I have to write, write, write first!!!

For the mystery lovers among us, there will be several mysteries out next year:

January: Death Below Stairs (Kat Holloway, Book 1; a full-length novel)

March: Murder in St. Giles (Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries, Book 13 [am I allowed to have a Book 13?])

May: Kat Holloway Mysteries, Book 2 (Title TBD)

Also might have another mystery out depending on how much time I have and whether or not my fingers fall off first …

Stay tuned for updates.

I’ll leave you with the pretty cover of Death Below Stairs:
