South Carolina author, Jay Mims, has just released his second installment in The Oncoming Storm series, The Cult of Koo Kway in followup to his underground success with debut, The Five Santas (publisher: Staccato Publishing). A quirky detective story, his style is affectionately known as a “cozy” among fans and is a genre made famous by personalities like Texas politician and cigar aficionado Kinky Friedman, J.B. Fletcher and Joanne Fluke. Low on graphic sex and violence, “cozies” are filled with odd personalities, old fashioned detective work and often pie. Most commonly series, cozies tend to be written by women and have a common thread such as quilting, cooking, or cats. Mr. Mims has differentiated himself from the pack for one by being male, and also for having a main character closer to Indiana Jones than Jessica Fletcher (Murder She Wrote, a tv series from the 1980’s that emulated the cozy mystery genre).
Fans of author, Jay Mims and his main character, Dan Landis, can find his books at their local indie bookstore as well as Barnes & Noble booksellers nationwide in paperback. Digital copies are available through all of the main sources such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble; coming soon to iTunes.
