…we're keeping our name but expanding our offerings!
Hi! We’re Lisa Henry and J.A. Rock, the authors of THE MERCHANT OF DEATH. We’re touring the web taking about our influences, our processes, anything we can think about actually, and even giving you guys a sneak peak or two! And what would a blog tour be without a contest? Check out the details at the bottom of the post to see what you can win!
Today though, we’re totally asking you guys for your help.
We had so much fun writing the PLAYING THE FOOL series, that we’d love to write more adventures featuring Henry and Mac. The only problem: titles. Every title has to be Shakespearean, but Shakespeare only wrote a certain amount of plays, and not all of those plays lend themselves to titles.
So today we’re going to play a game. Anyone who comments and suggests a potential Mac and Henry title taken from an existing Shakespeare play, gets a bonus entry in the blog tour grand prize!
Here are Shakespeare’s plays, apart from The Two Gentlemen of Verona, The Merchant of Venice, and The Tempest, because we’ve already stolen those.

Antony and Cleopatra
As You Like It
Comedy of Errors
Henry IV, Part I
Henry IV, Part II
Henry VI, Part I

Henry VI, Part III
Love’s Labour’s Lost
Measure for Measure
Merry Wives of Windsor
Midsummer Night’s Dream
Much Ado about Nothing
Romeo and Juliet

Timon of Athens
Troilus and Cressida
About THE MERCHANT OF DEATH:
There’s something rotten in the state of Indiana. When con man Henry Page takes it upon himself to investigate the death of an elderly patient at a care facility, he does so in true Shakespearean tradition: dressed as a girl.
FBI Agent Ryan “Mac” McGuinness has more to worry about than Henry’s latest crazy idea. Someone is trying to send him a message—via a corpse with a couple of bullets in it. He needs to figure out who’s trying to set him up before he gets arrested, and he really doesn’t have time for Henry’s shenanigans. Then again, he’d probably be able to focus better if Henry didn’t look so damn distracting in a babydoll dress and a wig.
But when Mac discovers that Henry has been keeping a secret that connects the cases, he has to find a way to live on the right side of the law when he just might be in love with the wrong sort of man.
