This year, my first literary child, Iron Lake, turns twenty years old. I’ve been penning my Cork O’Connor series for two decades. What a joy it’s been to see Cork and his family and Henry Meloux grow across all these years. If you’d asked me back in the fall of 1998 if I could imagine sixteen additional novels in the series floating out there somewhere on the horizon, I would have called you crazy.
I’m so very thankful to all of you who’ve been with me from the beginning, and so grateful to those of you who joined me along the way.
My publisher is pretty happy with all this, too. To help celebrate the anniversary, Atria Books has arranged a special ebook offering through June 24. This edition of Iron Lake contains a tantalizing excerpt from Desolation Mountain, #17 in the series, which will be released August 21.
You can order this edition directly from Simon and Schuster, or from any online bookseller.
