Mysteries, thrillers, home of PI Thomas Black


On sale September 25, 2015

Two Miles of Darkness, the latest Thomas Black mystery, is coming out on September 25, 2015.  There will be a trade paperback version as well as a Kindle, Nook, and Kobo ebook issue.

If you would like to pre-order, you can do it here for Kindle and here for Kobo.

So far there is no pre-sale link set up for the trade paperback version or for Nook. As soon as there is, I’ll amend this page to reflect it.

There’s a new promotion on Amazon wherein the customer can get the Kindle version for $2.99 when buying the book in trade paper.

If you do all your reading from the library, as many do, please encourage your local library to order the book either electronically or in the paper version.

    WOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This morning, after searching for a Charles WIlleford I haven’t ALREADY READ, I thought, “I wonder if Earl Emerson is ever going to write another book…”

  8. David and Muna Mitchell Said,

    Wow, we were really hoping, but never sure. We enjoyed meeting you last year, and after hearing how difficult the process is, we despaired over whether you could get it done. But Thomas Black lives! 🙂 We are looking forward to it!

    I have been collecting 1st editions of your hardcover books since the beginning of the Thomas Black series. I am so disappointed that I can’t get them anymore. Amazon does not have your paperback, just Kindle. Nor do they have the paperback of Monica’s Sister. Do the paperbacks exist somewhere else? Love your books, obviously.

  12. admin Said,

    Monica’s Sister is out in Kindle and Nook versions, but it’s also available in trade paperback. You can get it at Amazon or here at Createspace, the printer. On September 25th, 2015, Two Miles of Darkness will also be available in Kindle, Nook, Kobo e-reader versions as well as in trade paperback. It will be available on Amazon and also at the Createspace store. I’m with you in wishing the Blacks were still coming out in hardcover instead of trade paperback, but the vagaries of the publishing world are not something I have a whole lot of control over. The world of publishing has been turned upside down in the past ten years and I’m guessing it will do another complete somersault before it’s finished. I chose this route partially for convenience, but also because it seemed the most effective way to get my books to the public.
