HELL & HIGH WATER MANGA

PRE-ORDER LINK: Limited Hardcover Color Edition (color cover and color illustrations)
PRE-ORDER LINK: Paperback Edition (color cover and black & white illustrations)

Out October 29th.

 

It's been a long time coming, but the manga adaptation of Hell & High Water in English is finally here! I'm so excited! For those of you unfamiliar with the format, this is a comic book version of Hell & High Water. The original was released in Korean then translated into English and re-written by me to fit the original story and illustrations. I love the artwork in this, and Dex certainly converts well into a manga format. This book is so much fun!

If you'd like to see or download a preview of the comic, click any of the links above or below. You'll also find the answers to several questions I've been asked about the manga and the available editions. 


 

A GRAPHIC NOVEL ADAPTATION

When homicide detective Dexter J. Daley’s testimony helps send his partner away for murder, the consequences—and the media frenzy—aren’t far behind. He soon finds himself sans boyfriend, sans friends, and, after an unpleasant encounter in a parking garage after the trial, he’s lucky he doesn’t find himself sans teeth. Dex fears he’ll get transferred from the Human Police Force’s Sixth Precinct, or worse, get dismissed. Instead, his adoptive father—a sergeant at the Therian-Human Intelligence Recon Defense Squadron, otherwise known as the THIRDS—pulls a few strings, and Dex gets recruited as a Defense Agent.

Dex is determined to get his life back on track and eager to get started in his new job. But his first meeting with Team Leader Sloane Brodie, who also happens to be his new jaguar Therian partner, turns disastrous. When the team is called to investigate the murders of three Humanitherian activists, it soon becomes clear to Dex that getting his partner and the rest of the tightknit team to accept him will be a lot harder than catching the killer—and every bit as dangerous.

THIRDS Thursday Update

Hello, all! I hope you had a lovely weekend! After much deliberation, it saddens me to announce that THIRDS Thursday has officially come to an end. I had postponed it in the hopes of getting back to the regular schedule when my health and writing schedule permitted, but it's not fair to leave readers waiting and wondering, and as I had no idea when or if it would return, it was time to make a decision. This is not a decision I made lightly, but after 4 years and over 300,000 words plus extras, I can no longer keep up with the THIRDS Thursday schedule. It's not fair to ask readers to hang on, especially when the posting for THIRDS Thursday had started to become sporadic. THIRDS Thursday was always supposed to be something fun for readers.

I still plan on continuing to give readers THIRDS/TIN world flash fiction stories, freebies, and fun extras, just not on a set schedule, that way no one is disappointed. There are two more THIRDS Beyond the Books planned and ask for your patience in getting these released. They are coming, it's just taking a little time. I want to thank the THIRDS readers for all their amazing love and support over the years. I'm very excited to be starting a new chapter in Dex and Sloane's lives and hope you'll join me for the ride. I'm planning lots of fun stuff for these guys, and I'll be sure to post here and on Facebook when I have exciting extras for you. My readers continue to be a source of inspiration and amazing support, and I thank you with all my heart.

x Charlie

SUMMARY

Austen Payne, THIRDS Squadron Specialist Agent (SSA) for Destructive Delta and TIN operative, has seen the worst the world has to offer, faced lethal killers, and helped bring down dangerous organizations. But nothing terrifies him more than falling in love. After years of undercover work, Austen is a master at defending himself and protecting his heart...until he meets Osmond Zachary.

THIRDS Defense Agent Osmond Zachary has a huge, doting family, yet something is missing in his life. After meeting grumpy, foul-mouthed, jittery cheetah Therian Austen Payne, Zach knows exactly what that something - or someone - is. Unfortunately Austen seems determined to avoid Zach at all costs.

When Zach foils an assassination attempt, he ends up in the killer’s crosshairs, and Austen is Zach’s best chance at staying alive. Zach hopes the crisis will bring them closer, but Austen has every intention of walking away as soon as the danger is over.

Happily ever after isn’t for guys like Austen, but Zach is determined to show him it can be....

Hello, all! Someone brought up a very good question about the new THIRDS Thursdays schedule. On the new schedule, we have one Thursday with a giveaway, one Thursday with something random and THIRDS related, then two Thursdays with flash fiction. But what about months with five Thursdays? That's a good question. These days I'm lucky I know what month we're in. So, that fifth Thursday.... We'll think of something cool for you guys.

How about I give away 5 ARC copies of Love and Payne? Yes? Good idea? Read it before it's out! Woot!

To enter: Just leave a comment below with your most anticipated THIRDS Universe book release. Is it a TIN series book? An M/F THIRDS Universe Novel like Letty and Captain Kirk? Or A THIRDS Universe Novel like Angel and Taylor? Whose book are you just itching for?

Ends: Sunday, August 19th @ midnight EST. Winners will be chosen at random and announced here on this post on Monday, August 20th.
