JAN 2021: LAFITTE HEADS BACK TO FRANCE
Thanks to Sonatine Editions in France, Billy Lafitte's first two novels were introduced to the French-Speaking World (with translations from fabrice pointeau), and now they're going to have another run at taking over the place.
10/18 Editions has just released the pocket version (or "poche") of Lune Noire (aka Yellow Medicine) in a beautiful package I can't wait to get my hands on. They plan on releasing Bete Noire (aka Hogdoggin') at some point in the future, but I don't yet know when.
JAN 2020: SLOW BEAR RELEASED TO THE WORLD
My latest novella, Slow Bear, is available as of January 25th from Fahrenheit 13, the lunatic noir imprint of the Transatlantic Love Cult that is Fahrenheit Books. It picks up on the story of Micah "Slow Bear" Cross, who we left in bad shape at the end of Worm. Now he's back, lacking an arm and a reason to live. But sure enough, he's soon in trouble way over his head - a lady bartender who has taken a liking to him, an oil baron who controls his part of the North Dakota oil fields with an iron fist, and any number of bruisers who wish our hero harm. Take a look. (Ebook coming soon)
SEPT 2019: THE BILLY LAFITTE SAGA CONTINUES IN FRANCE
On the heels of Billy Lafitte making a splash in French literary waters back in the Spring with LUNE NOIRE, here he comes again in the next volume, BETE NOIRE (BLACK BEAST, or in the US, HOGDOGGIN').

March 2019: The Billy Lafitte Saga begins in France
Very excited to announce that Sonatine Editions will be publishing the French translations of both YELLOW MEDICINE (LUNE NOIRE) and HOGDOGGIN' (BETE NOIRE) this coming year, starting in March. Both have been translated by the fabulous Fabrice Pointeau, who has worked with many authors I admire, and some of whom I count as friends.
