It's almost here, Junkies, the second GFL novella, THE DETECTIVE.
This one is co-authored with one of my favorite authors, Matt "FN" Wallace (the FN doesn't stand for "Fillmore Nash," if you know what I mean). When I say "one of my favorite authors," I don't mean "one of my favorite podcast authors" or "one of my favorite giant, shambling mound of former pro wrestler authors," I mean one of my favorite authors, period.
Matt Wallace is a surly m-effer with a bad attitude. He can also flat-out write some really mean, nasty and touching fiction that -- if you'll pardon the vernacular -- keeps it real. He spins tales of latent tragedy and invetable, unavoidable demise that just gut me. In case you can't tell, I'm excited to bring this to y'all.
THE DETECTIVE is the story of Frederico Esteban Guissepe Gonzaga's search for the family of Quentin Barnes. "Fred" is a private detective and bodyguard that has worked for John Tweedy and had some unknown run-ins with Gredok the Splithead. In THE DETECTIVE, we learn about Fred's background and how he came to be the bad-ass that he is. I'm not sure if there are a lot of openly gay characters in YA fiction, but Fred is one of them (although this is probably as close as you can get to the edge of "YA" without teetering over into "PG-13" land).
Expect this bad boy in the Kindle store, on Nook, and at scottsigler.com/store in October, 2012.

Also? A pre-emptive "no, it's not about the Human Torch" answer to all of you smart-ass Junkies out there (and yes, Scott Pond, I'm talking to you).
