Well-Behaved Women – A Series Overview

What’s it About?

Rose Booker remembers how she died. Both times.

Rose’s pursuit of the truth behind those memories leads her to discover that she was in a past life the legendary pirate queen Mary Read — and that she’s not the only infamous historical figure who has returned from the dead.

Who is this Series For?

Well-Behaved Women is an urban fantasy trilogy featuring a predominantly female cast. I wrote it for everyone looking for an action-packed adventure tale driven by complex heroic (and villainous, and somewhere in-between) LGBTQ women.

Is it Suitable for Young Readers?

No. The series contains violence, language, and sexual content that make it inappropriate for younger readers.

What are the Books in the Series?

Awakening: Nearly a year after being shot and left for dead, Sergeant Rose Booker returns to active duty with the Worcester Police Department, hoping to put the past behind her — except she’s not sure it’s her past that’s haunting her.

When hard-drinking hellraiser Julie d’Aubigny enters Rose’s life, she promises to reveal the truth behind Rose’s nightmares — or are they memories? — of her death at the end of a hangman’s noose.

But first Rose must stop the mysterious madman waging a bloody campaign of vengeance that threatens to turn the city’s streets red. All she has to do is uncover his identity — and his own dark secret.

Transition: The adventure continues as Rose and her friends deal with the aftermath of the events in Awakening and face off against a new, deadlier enemy hellbent on revenge.

 

Endtimes: Rose, Anna, and Julie face the fight of their lives in the conclusion of the Well-Behaved Women trilogy.

All three titles are available as audiobooks.

Something strange has happened: for once, I don’t have a writing project.

Technically I have a few projects in process right now (see below) but I’m not doing any new writing at present. It’s unusual for me, but the timing is good, because over the next few weeks, my wife and I will be packing up and moving to a new home — a home with a writing office for me! Yay!

Weekly Update – October 8, 2019

The audiobook version of Well-Behaved Women – Awakening is part of a major promotion hosted by Emerald Dodge, so go check it out and maybe find yourself a new audiobook!

Now that I’ve gotten the blatant self-promotion out of the way…

I had my author day at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire last weekend, and I’d like to publicly praise my wife Veronica for being a selling machine. Because of her I topped last year’s sales figures handily, and she sold three of the four Well-Behaved Women trilogy/audiobook special packages I had. She even sold books I didn’t have on-hand because I ran out!
