I just joined Kindle Boards, at the recommendation of Leslie, my publisher at Bristlecone Pine Press. I have 2 gay mysteries out with Leslie -- L.A. Heat and L.A. Mischief. As the titles would suggest these books take place in Los Angeles and feature LAPD homicide detective David Eric Laine, buried in the closet and Christopher Bellamere, a hot, promiscuous computer analyst who cruises the clubs of West Hollywood and Silverlake. Chris finds himself being accused of the gruesome murders of several ex-lovers and at first David is convinced they have their killer. But as he investigates with his homophobic partner he comes to believe Chris is innocent. Worse, David is falling for his prime suspect. He has to decide whether to break the closet door down and save Chris or let the man he loves face the wrath of the real killer.

In L.A. Mischief we follow the battling duo as they struggle to come to terms with their disparate personalities and find a way to make their love work.

Other Chris and David books are due out next year and I believe they'll be available on Kindle.

Looking forward to meeting everyone. I don't own a Kindle yet, I'm waiting for them to come down in price and have the download features available in Canada.

Hi Pat, welcome! Glad to see you here!

Yes, I am the epublisher of Pat's two books, but as a reader, I absolutely love them! I recommend them to anyone who wants a murder mystery with a bit of hot romance. Here are links to both of them:

Welcome PABROWN

How nice to have a different type of mystery to read.  Looking forward to getting your books and reading them.

You will like it here - all the best authors are members off the KindleBoard (even those without kindles) and I am not an author!

Since Pat is offline, I'll answer. Yes, L. A. Heat is the first.

And if I may brag a bit, my daughter Hannah did the covers. :D But Pat did the writing and it's very very well done.

Hi, Pat -

Thanks for posting here - your books are the kind I like to read.  I'm sure I will be purchasing them here shortly.

Uh, Leslie? Pat?  What is the difference between a book and a "novella", other than the length of the book?

Leslie, I love what your daughter did with the "Do not cross" crime scene tape.  What a great way to indicate the contents of the book in a fresh way.

Hope you join the other authors participating here, Pat.

Cheers,

Marci

To me, the distinction is length. L.A. Mischief is about 50,000 words; L.A. Heat is about 80,000.

As I understand it, anything under 60,000 is a novella. It's a small distinction, not all that relevant in ebooks but very much so in print, where people feel cheated if the book is too slim, since the publisher can't really charge much less than for a full size book.
