Relaunching the Mahu Series

Openly gay Honolulu homicide detective Kimo Kanapa'aka has had a checkered publishing history. Mahu first came out in print from Harrington Park Press back in 2005. After the company that owned the press was sold and the press was shuttered, I was fortunate to move him to Alyson Books, which published the first four books in the series before they, too, shut down as a result of a corporate merger. Then Laura Baumbach, owner of MLR Press, agreed to take on the whole series, reprinting the first three and then publishing seven more titles.

Honestly, after 2013's Ghost Ship, I thought I was done. Kimo was settled with his partner, their foster son and the two kids they shared with a lesbian couple I didn't think he had more to say.

And then, the way these things go, he started talking to me again, and a new book began to take shape. I thought this would be a good chance to take back ownership of the series and relaunch it with new, modern covers. Here are the first six, all in newly revised and proofed editions with professional layout to maximize your reading enjoyment!
