Just a short note here. Frank and I have basically finished our second book, a sequel to Blood on Blood. It’s being worked over, proofed, prodded, pushed around and cleaned up. We stayed with the same recipe in terms of how we would actually write it; kept it first person, continued to alternate our chapters, characters and writing. We tried to keep a similar pace and stay as close as we could to the overall style of the first book. We wanted similarities and connection.

This book will have its marked differences as well though. Without letting the cat out of the bag, I can say that the new story has an almost entirely new cast of characters. It has a new setting, a totally new story line and a different all around tone to it. Make no mistake about it though, it’s a continuance of our first story and there is a third being cooked up right now. Trilogy has a nice ring to it.

The writing collaboration thing with Frank continues to work like a charm for me. For him, I’m sure it’s like a sweaty nightmare that won’t end. A slow motion dream where he’s running in place - trying to get away so badly but he just can’t move fast enough.

We’re very excited about this second book and can’t wait for it to be released. ‘This second book’ does have a title and we’ll be out with that soon. I’ll let Frank decide when to announce it and some other details as they come.

And finally, (I heard that sigh) please help us spread the word on Blood on Blood. If you’ve read it, we thank you very much and hope you enjoyed it. If you haven’t tried it yet, we would be thrilled if you gave it a try. We’re biased, but we think you might like this story and the one coming. To anyone that has thought about it, but maybe just hasn’t gotten around to it, we would love to get a few more reviews up on Amazon. To date we have a grand total of 2. We’re thinking of bribing you if we have to, or even blackmail if necessary. We have no scruples.


  1. Hey Ryan,

    Thanks for dropping by. Appreciate that! And once again, that was a great interview over at Gutter.
