As a Scrivener and a Seer, Dixon and Yuri possess many talents. Baking is not one of them.

But when a mysterious malady grips Yuri, the two of them must bargain, bluff, and bake their way through Pinyin Bay to find a cure.

Dixon is none too confident in the kitchen, but he’ll stop at nothing if it means finding a cure for his grown man friend. Even if that means getting his hands dirty in the flour bin.

Yuri, naturally, makes a terrible patient, and their home remedy attempts are half-baked at best. Can he dredge up the patience to figure out what lies behind his bizarre affliction?

Victor Bayne never saw himself as husband material, but after an undercover stint as half of a married couple, he’s willing to give it a shot. Jacob Marks was eager to settle down from the get-go, so once Vic popped the question, the wedding should’ve been smooth sailing.

But new evidence has come to light that casts a pall over the whole affair: decades of psychic experimentation and intrigue. Vic would hardly be shocked to discover he’s been an unwitting test subject, but it’s not his name on the roster.

It’s Jacob’s.

Planning a wedding on short notice is challenging enough without a covert investigation. Vic can deal with premarital counseling, floral emergencies, and the world’s most annoying baker—but can he handle what he finds out about his other half?

Support JCP's Audiobooks

fundraiser tee Audio production can be expensive for an independent author. My audio projects take months, sometimes years, to even recoup their production costs.

Audiobooks are pricy to make. I have considered Patreon and decided it would take too much of my time away from my broader readership. Instead, I've come up with some alternative ways you can support the project.

Fundraiser T-shirts - Buy a PsyCop or Spellcraft T-shirt or other merchandise. T-shirt sales funded nearly HALF the production cost of Skin After Skin. That's huge!

Tip Jar Tip Jar - The way audiobook distribution is currently structured, the author makes less per sale than the middlemen. Not all of my audios earn back their production costs. If you're loving the audios and receive hours of entertainment from them, consider dropping a few bucks in the tip jar. It will add up!

Monthly Donation - If you're so inclined, you can do this through the tip jar, too!

I’m the last guy in the world who cares about sports, whether we’re talking about the Cubs, Sox, Bulls or Bears, or for that matter anything even remotely athletic. So I was a little surprised when Jacob suggested that we take a trip downtown to go ice skating. But nowhere near as surprised as he was when I told him I thought it was a great idea.

What Jacob didn’t know was that I’d played pee-wee hockey the winter I was eleven. (I didn’t give a rat’s ass about hockey. I had a crush on the goalie.) And what I didn’t know was that the ice rink would look so cool after sunset. All the bare trees along Michigan Avenue had been wrapped in white Christmas lights, and the whole Chicago skyline blazed behind them. Millennium Park was insanely cold, but it was gorgeous.

Jacob must have figured out that I could skate before we even got out on the ice. Not only is he smart that way, but I’m about as easy to read as a billboard. Even so, he still spent more time checking me out than he did enjoying the scenery. It’s weird, the way he stares. He doesn’t stop when I catch him at it. He just smiles a little.
