Necropolis Release Day


I’m insanely excited to announce Whyborne & Griffin 4, Necropolis, is available for sale!

Introverted scholar Percival Endicott Whyborne has spent the last few months watching his lover, Griffin Flaherty, come to terms with the rejection of his adoptive family. So when an urgent telegram from Christine summons them to Egypt, Whyborne is reluctant to risk the fragile peace they’ve established. Until, that is, a man who seems as much animal as human tries to murder Whyborne in the museum.

Amidst the ancient ruins of the pharaohs, they must join Christine and face betrayal, murder, and a legendary sorceress risen from the dead. In the forge of the desert heat, the trio will either face their fears and stand together—or shatter the bonds between them forever.

I hope you have as much fun reading this book as I did writing it!

    Soooooo… when does the audio become available? Because the books are much more enjoyable to the blindies when we don’t have to listen to an uninflected computer voice read the text versions.

      Hi Michelle! Julian is starting recording today as a matter of fact. I’d guess it will be out around mid-June. 😀

    First of all, when I saw this on my Kindle Fire yesterday I could hardly get anything coherent out of my mouth. I was so excited to see this released a day early. I downloaded it almost immediately (I was kind of weary of it being out a day early) and stayed up late finishing it off.

    Secondly, I have to apologize. I liked the Christine character right from the start, but I have to say I didn’t really get where she fit into the Whyborne & Griffin relationship. I know she’s Whyborne’s friend but she was always in the background to me.

    That was until I read Necropolis and it finally dawned on me that she’s… incredible. She’s like Whyborne and Griffin’s champion. And I adore Whyborne and Griffin, but Christine shined in this book. So I apologize to you for not giving her the credit she well deserves.

    I didn’t mean for this comment to be so long, sorry. There’s just a couple more things I wanted to say. I really can’t stop gushing about this book. I want to give you streams of confetti for such an amazing story. Overall and for this book alone. I especially want to shake your hand for (I won’t spoil this for anybody who hasn’t read it yet) the scene between Whyborne, Griffin and Christine towards the end of the book. I cried and cried and then cried some more after I was done with the book. Beautiful, beautiful scene between them.

    The other thing I wanted to say is, how did you go about researching for this book? I know a little bit about Egypt myself, but some of the terms you used were completely new to me. How did you do it?

    I’m stopping here. Thank you so, so very much for this book. It’s one of my absolute favorite series and I adore you immensely for bringing it to us. 🙂

      Thanks so much for your very thoughtful comments, Christy! I’m glad Christine finally clicked for you. 😀

      As for research I did a lot of delving into the archaeology and politics of the time. I live near a university so I frequently visit their library, which helped immensely! Plus when I was younger I desperately wanted to be an Egyptologist and have been carrying a lot of this around in my brain for years. 😀

        You’re welcome. 🙂

        I thought maybe you had been to Egypt yourself. Thank you for answering my question.

    Just finished Necropolis and of course loved it; 5 stars all the way. But I have to ask, towards the end I REALLY, REALLY, wanted Griffin’s POV. OMG!! so much happens to him. And pls tell me the “Weeks later” thing was just a warm up to a short about what happened in that time period. I love Whyborne’s POV, but there is some much depth to Griffin as well.

    • jordan

      Thank you so much, Riva! That’s one of the drawbacks of first person POV, because you’re right, so much does happen to Griffin! I hadn’t thought of doing a short about that time, but now that you mention it, it might be interesting to write up a couple of pages…if I do, I’ll probably put it here in the bonus section. *ponders*

        Oh that would be so awesome. Thank you, Thank you!! I just love Griffin and his strong, loving presence in Whyborne’s life, while he is struggling with his own private demons from Chicago and his family. I understand it can’t be a whole novel, but a short would be great.
