The Black Records

The Black Records novels have been temporarily unpublished while new editions are revised and edited. Each of the first three books will is receiving an extensive review and rewrite, but fear not! If you’ve already read one of the first books, the core story line isn’t changing at all. Some scenes are being subtly reworked while some sections are getting expanded backstory, more intense action, and a bit of extra attention.

In the meantime, you can read The New Black novella for free by simply signing up for the newsletter. This is also the best way to stay informed of when the first three books are being relaunched, along with two entirely new titles and two new novellas… one of which dives into Chase’s surprising background.

If you’re a fan and wondering what’s going on with no new books in the last year, skim down a bit for a note on that.

If you’d like to be among the first notified of new releases, simply sign up here. As a bonus, you’ll receive the prequel novella The New Black, available exclusively to subscribers.

Current Publishing Schedule

First drafts of both Black Arts and Black & Tan (Black Records 4 and 5) are done. I am currently undertaking a series revision of the first three books, because although I’m mostly happy with them as they first appeared, I’ve had a lot of time to think about Alex and those books, and have decided to give the whole series a little refresh. Nothing in the plot is going to change, so if you’re not planning to re-read them, you won’t miss out. There will, however, be some new scenes added to each of the books. Black Ice in particular was written during a tough period in my life, and has always felt a little thin compared to the first two books. This revision will bring much closer to the page count of the four other Black Records titles coming out over the course of the next several months.

I am going to try my best to re-release the first three books by the end of 2019, with the two new titles following in early 2020. I also have a new novella I’ll be sending out free to all newsletter subscribers by way of apology for taking so long to continue the series, and I’ll be make sure every one of the re-published books is either discounted to 99¢ or eventually offered free so you can update your ebook collections if you’d like. Stay tuned for news on a novella that illuminates some formative moments from Chase’s pre-Alex past! 

This has been a very difficult year, so I appreciate those of you who are patiently awaiting new installments. Writing books around a single parenting schedule hasn’t been a challenge to say the least, but the books are almost ready!

Thanks for your patience,
