Desperate Hours by D K Gaston
After a six year absence, Joe Hooks and Kool-Aid are back in another exciting adventure.
The story picks up more than a year after the events of Lost Hours. It is the summer of 2006. Joe is visited by a man he’d hoped never to see again, Grady, a former mob enforcer currently working for a corrupt city councilman, Lucius Meriwether. Grady questions him about the whereabouts of Kool-Aid. When Joe doesn’t have an answer for him, the enforcer departs, leaving Joe with a lot of questions of his own. Later, he is contacted by Shanna, a teen he helped escape the clutches of a pimp. She begs him to come pick her up. He does, only to find her injured, telling him of a knife wielding killer.
In the meantime, Kool-Aid is hired to protect Minnie, another teenager Joe helped from the same pimp. She spins a tale of being chased by street thugs. However, when two professional goons come after the teen, her story begins to fall apart. Kool-Aid must decide whether to continuing helping her or cut Minnie loose.
While Joe protects Shanna from being pulled into a murder investigation (where she's the prime suspect); Kool-Aid also has his hands full keeping Minnie out of harm's way.
One or both girls' might be keeping secrets from their protectors that could place all their lives in mortal danger.

It's shaping up to be a busy month for me. I recently acquired the rights to my second novel, Lost Hours. To celebrate, I gave it a new cover, which you can check out below this post.
The timing couldn't be better, because the third Joe Hooks novel, DESPERATE HOURS, will be released on July 8, 2016. I've been working off and on the novel for the past few years and decided it was time to get it done.
There will be a electronic and paperback editions of Desperate Hours.
The current projects I'm working on are Worms (a horror novel) and Solomon's Ring (a sequel to my first novel XIII).
Like I said at the beginning, it's a busy month for me.
I decided to bring back paperback editions of Lost Hours and thought perhaps it was time to give it a face-lift. Hope you like it.

Where Sword and Soul ends and before Steamfunk begins, there is the Age of Spring Technology and Clockwork. Imagine an alternate universe where chronomancer Benjamin Banneker crafts a world of automatons, clockwork airships and other marvels; where Nat Turner leads a rebellion, killing hordes of vampire slave owners; where the pirate queen, Black Pitch Pauline joins Jean-Jacques Dessalines in defeating Napoleon during the Haitian Revolution. Think Three Finger’d Jack; the pirate, Black Caesar; the Black Count, Nat Turner, and the Stono Rebellion…
THAT is Rococoa! Fourteen masters of speculative fiction have taken a new genre, embraced its established themes and refashioned them in surprising ways and settings. The result is an anthology that defies its genre even as it defines it.
