Posts Tagged ‘The Burns! Mystery series’

Sometimes it’s a sentence or two. Sometimes an arresting image, the ragged edge of a dream, or even a random thought. No matter how it comes, I will usually seize it and shake the hell out of it until I bend it to my will, letting it become a promotion. In some cases, it can become a novel. That’s a story for another blog!

Here are a couple of ideas that arrived in the past few days. I hope they make you want to read the book(s).

One of the shining reviewer stars on Amazon and Goodreads is a man named simply “Bo.” He really should write for a living (if he does not already). The burning rose image at the top of this page was inspired by Bo, from a brief comment he left one day right here on my blog. Let this be my homage to a very fine and insightful reviewer, and of course if it sells a few books I will not complain!

Hot, taut, and Scot. A scorching series from Erin O’Quinn.

The Burns! Mysteries… In the space of six novellas and one novel, Thomas and Burns experience lust and love, crime and punishment as they swivel from the edge of death to the verge of ecstasy. And back again.


BURNS TOO DEEP: An undercover cop encounters a very desirable man who’s running from the law. What could go wrong?

THE DUNDEE LAW: The men step far too close to a shallow grave, on an ancient burial mound in Dundee.

RED, RED ROSE: Under the roof in a gabled Victorian house in Edinburgh lie old crimes and new desires.

THE DEVIL IN FALKIRK: The men spiral apart, felled by the devil of distrust and misunderstanding.

THE UNICORN’S SECRET: The Hunt for the Unicorn brings someone even closer to the edge of another shallow grave.

THE BURNS ENIGMA: Searching for a man he thought forever lost, Thomas finds that a new lover is even better—and more imperiled— than he could ever imagine.

COME AGAIN, MY LOVE: An old wynd in modern Edinburgh leads to the 18th century, where the two men try to save a man from the gallows. Along the way, they have to confront their own buried secrets…

Just this morning, trolling through my “Pages” feed on Facebook, I saw the following photo of a twisty-limbed bristlecone pine. In a flash of memory, it brought me back to my days in Nevada…on the slopes of Mt. Moriah, gazing at the panorama of unique bristlecones there…the actual setting of my first Nevada Highlander novel.

The following promotion is one I’m using to remind readers, this book and its companions are fresh and compelling. I hope the image speaks volumes.

O’Quinn’s most-read series! The twisted bristlecone in Nevada’s highlands says it all!

Kudos to marvelous reviewer Susan Wylie Wilson for the Levi’s catch-phrase, and to talented cover artist Rebecca Poole.

I’m posting this for the stalwart followers of Erin O’Quinn’s work and words. Here is a promo I am running on Facebook:

When Burns walks into that good night in THE UNICORN’S SECRET, how will Thomas cope with the rest of his bleak existence? Is there a way these two lost souls can still find each other and save each other?

A tough cop and a reclusive civilian discover that an old crime and a new murder are connected. Worse, the common denominator is one of them.

Thomas Fitzgerald and a “new” lover are in the shadow of a criminal, one who has set his mind on brutal revenge.

The first five Burns! Mysteries tiptoed to the brink of the paranormal and finally teetered over the edge. What will happen in this mystery, as then and now and tomorrow start to merge? The enigma begins with Burns…

Watch for THE BURNS ENIGMA, coming soon to an ebook store near you… And by that, my friends, I mean as soon as I can sell a few copies of that damned unicorn.
