The new Park Skarda-April Force thriller is out!

It's been a while since I published Sapphire (bundled with Platinum), but finally Iron (bundled with Ruby) is out, available at!

Here is the book description:

OSR field officers Park Skarda and April Force are back again for more edge-of-your-seat action in two exciting new novellas from Brian January!


Astrophysicist and genius inventor Dr. Lucius Nero is a man in torment, whose sickness is compelling him to do nothing less than destroy the entire Earth by pulling asteroids out of their orbits to wreak destruction on the planet.

When Skarda and April witness the first wave of meteorites strike the Washington Monument, they set off on a race against time to try to stop Nero from carrying out his suicidal plan.

From Washington, D.C. to the rust-colored deserts of northern Arizona, it's a non-stop thrill ride as the minutes tick down toward the last seconds before ultimate extinction.

Iron is a novella of approximately 20,000 words, bundled with Ruby, a novella of approximately 32,000 words.


When Skarda finds an ancient ruby in a medieval burial chamber, it triggers off a maelstrom of events that pit the OSR team against an obese sex trafficker named Zaric, whose mercenary force steals the ruby and kidnaps Hailey Buchanan, the daughter of a United States senator.

Now it's personal, and Skarda and April will stop at nothing to rescue Hailey and get back the precious gem. From the streets of Paris to the Croatian coast and the rugged wilds of the Dinaric Alps the chase is on!

Ruby is a novella of approximately 32,000 words bundled with Iron, a novella of  approximately 20,000 words.
