Coming to an iPod near you ...

DIR_Audio_Cover.smDead In Red, the second book in the Jeff Resnick Mystery series, is on its way to becoming an audiobook.  It's currently awaiting final approval before distribution, which should be within the next 10-14 days.  Don't worry, I'll be shouting from the roofs when it's available, so you'll know for sure when it's finally available.

In the meantime, there's a newish cover.  Those of you who read the original hardcover edition will notice that ... hey, it has the same elements.  Yup.  The red shoe is back in all its glory.  (However, I have no plans to bring this version to the trade paperback edition. Audio editions often have different covers than the print versions.)

Meanwhile, those of you who've read the book will remember that Jeff surprised Maggie with a Silver Stallion.  What's a silver stallion?  It's one of the best gin cocktails you can drink on a hot summer's day. (Yeah, I do realize we're still in the depths of winter -- but spring is on the way!)

Silver stallionHow do you make a Silver Stallion?
1 1/2 ounces of gin
1 scoop vanilla ice cream
Club Soda

Fill a tall glass (or a big wine glass) with ice.  Pour in the gin; add the ice cream; top the glass with club soda.  Give it a stir and sip.

Ahhhh...heaven in a glass.

When Jeff's behind the bar, you can bet it's 5 o'clock somewhere!
