Robert Ellis: Robert Ellis News!


During this horrific stretch of time dealing with the Covid crisis, a presidential election, cable news overdoses, and whatever else the world’s decided to toss at us, I’ve been very busy!

The new novel, Detective Matt Jones 4, is done, and will be out in early May! I’m keeping the title and cover art secret for a few more weeks, but all of that and pre-order info will be posted soon!

What’s not secret are the Lena Gamble novels. Kindle editions of the newly released editions have just gone up on Amazon with paperbacks to follow soon. I think the artwork for these books is more than I could have ever hoped for. I especially love the new cover for MURDER SEASON! Wow! What a gem! Also, very important. These novels are finally set at a reasonable price. I can remember being out on tour. Every bookseller I met, every editor I ever worked with, called Lena Gamble the only female in crime fiction able to stand with Sam Spade. I know I’m biased, but I still wholeheartedly agree, and hope you do, too! I hope you enjoy the new editions of these books as much I enjoyed rereading them and putting all this together!

More news on Matt Jones 4, my favorite of them all!,


All best,

And it’s great news! The rights to all three Lena Gamble novels have finally come home to roost! Brand new editions of all three thrillers are underway, and best of all, there will be a huge drop in price from around $9.99 to $2.99. This is the new jacket for CITY OF FIRE. A Kindle edition was released this week.

CITY FOR FIRE New on Amazon 

Kindle editions of THE LOST WITNESS and MURDER SEASON will be published over the next couple of months. Paperbacks will follow, and have the same wonderful quality about them as THE GIRL BURIED IN THE WOODS! The fonts, the style, everything just right!

Thanks to everyone behind the scenes who helped make this happen!
