Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00025]Well, almost…on August 1, you can download it, but you can PRE-ORDER it on Kindle now! Or order the paperback!

I’m pretty excited about this sequel to The Backlist. In fact, so much so that Eric Beetner and I are going to start work soon on A Bricks and Cam Job #3!

Meanwhile, here’s hoping you’ll dig this second installment of this series which takes us to Boston for much of our tale. Once again, the tale is told in alternating first person chapters featuring first Cam and then Bricks, then back to Cam again. I wrote the Bricks chapters and Eric the Cam chapters. The story, like the first, has it’s moments of humor, plenty of action, and a little bit of bittersweet.


Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00025]My second novel in The List series, The Short List (with Eric Beetner) will be out from Down & Out Books on August 1st, 2016.

What is it about?

When Bricks and Cam strike out on their own in the aftermath of their bloody showdown with the Giordano family, not everything goes as planned. Boring, straight jobs aren’t satisfying, and their first successful solo hit is a messy one. Worse yet, someone has revenge on their mind. Before they know what is happening, Cam is kidnapped and Bricks is attacked by an old enemy.

Cam uses his wits as he struggles to escape his captors while Bricks frantically searches for her partner in crime. Both hack away at the mystery of who is bent upon vengeance against. There is a short list in play, and both Cam and Bricks are on it.

But they’re not going to stand still and take being attacked. Not by anyone. They’re going to fight back.  They’re making a list of their own, and it’s even shorter than the one they’re on…

Get your copy on August 1!

DepartedV4My third Stefan Kopriva novel, Friend of the Departed, is now available!

What’s it about? Well…

When defense attorney Joel Harrity asks Kopriva to look into a prospective client’s guilt or innocence in the murder of her husband, he reluctantly agrees. He quickly discovers that answers to even the simplest of questions are nearly impossible to find. The deeper Kopriva digs, the more no one seems to want him to find the truth behind the death of Harrity’s friend.

Faced with a possible murderer that won’t answer questions, a police department asking the wrong people the wrong questions, and threats of violence from an unknown source, Kopriva forges on, determined to discover the truth….even if it kills him.

Get your copy now in ebook or paperback! Audio coming soon!

BackList FINAL CoverMy novel with Eric Beetner, The Backlist, is now available for pre-order from Down & Out Books!

The book will be available on September 15 for $4.99 but if you pre-order, you get it for only $2.99. So grab yours now!

What’s this book about? Well….

When the mob finds itself on hard times and has to lay people off, the boss decides to give two different hitters separate lists of “overdue accounts”—a backlist—to see who distinguishes themselves enough to remain on the payroll.

The sharp-tongued Bricks and the hapless, eager to please Cam find themselves faced with challenges they never imagined when they got into the business.

But there’s no other choice than to settle out the names on…The Backlist.

Eric Beetner and Frank Zafiro are behind the voices of Cam and Bricks, and bring you a fast-paced crime novel full of action, twists, verbal jabs, and mayhem. Lots of mayhem.


P.S. Down & Out Books has accepted the sequel, The Short List, for publication in September 2016!

 TradeOff FrontMy newest release, THE TRADE OFF, needs reviews. So…I will give a free copy of IN THE SHADOW OF EL PASO (paperback, ebook, or audio) to the first TEN people who read The Trade Off, write a review, and notify me of said review.shadow of el paso mini banner

That’s it. Get the book ($2.99 Kindle, $12.99 paperback), write the review, and tell me about it. After that, the only thing left to do is decide if you want the paperback version of IN THE SHADOW OF EL PASO (I have limited copies, so first come, first served there), the ebook, or the splendid audio version narrated by Craig Jessen.

This offer will run until done!
