The Given - Out now!

Dearest Readers, Ta-Da! Please allow me to introduce…


Available now, this is the final installment in my para-noir Celestial Blues trilogy, and I’m thrilled it’s finally here. Publishers Weekly already gave it a starred review, but here are what some of the latest reviewers have to say:

“The Given is a vivid, lush ending to … a unique and immensely entertaining series. This is urban fantasy at its finest and a trilogy … I’ll keep returning to again and again.” — LitStack

“(Pettersson) blew me away with the Celestial Blues series!” — Talk Books to Me

“THE GIVEN is a stunning conclusion to an unusual trilogy that’ll leave you wishing that it hadn’t ended so soon. — Rabid Reads*

I have to say, it’s a fantastic welcome to the end of a trilogy that has been an honor to work on. I loved meeting Grif and Kit on the page everyday, and I hope you find the conclusion to their story as satisfying as I did writing it.

Tonight kicks of The Given tour with a signing in my quiet little hometown, Las Vegas. Here’s the location if you’re able to make it:

Barnes and Noble – 2191 N. Rainbow Blvd

*Note: I’m meeting with readers early for a little coffee klatch at 6 pm, so please note that while the singing and Q&A is scheduled for 7:00 pm, this allows me to chat with you as well. Don’t be shy!

If you can’t make the Vegas signing tonight, here are a few other dates:

JUNE 6-7, 2014 – PHOENIX, AZ
Phoenix Comic-Con – Phoenix Convention Center 100 N. 3rd Street

I hope I see some of you at one of the above events, but if not — I leave you with the words themselves. Not to mention (finally!) the answer to the longstanding question… Who killed Griffin Shaw?
