Charlie Cochet’s Men & Mischief Monthly Author Column…THIRDS World and the New TIN Series.

Charlie M & M


Hello, all! Thank you so much for joining me here today at Sinfully for my monthly author column. A little over two and a half weeks ago Smoke & Mirrors was released. It’s the 7th book in the THIRDS series. The day before its release during the THIRDS 2-year anniversary event, I announced the new THIRDS series for 2017. So far the response has been amazing, and it’s incredibly exciting and touching to hear the enthusiasm for the new series. The fact that so many readers are willing to follow Dex and Sloane wherever they go is incredible, and not something I’ll ever take for granted.


In 2017 we have the new TIN series which is still part of the THIRDS world. The difference being that Dex and Sloane will be the focus of the new series. As the two set off on a new adventure together as a part of an elite agency, they’ll have to balance the next step in of their relationship, family life, their new roles at the THIRDS, their new kick-ass identities, and for Dex his new abilities. It’s not going to be easy by any means, and they’ll both find themselves pulled in different directions concerning work and home life.

Wolf made his debut in Smoke & Mirrors, and you can bet it’s not the last we’ve seen of him. In fact, from Book 8 onwards, we’re going to be seeing a lot more of him, along with Seb and Hudson, who will also have a good deal of new to get used to. Change will be hard for everyone, especially for certain members of Destructive Delta. Tony will also be facing some challenges, and making some tough decisions.

The new series will be set up as standalone books. The relationship between Dex and Sloane will continue to grow. Happily Ever After is never the end, and in this case just the beginning. Our dynamic duo will continue to grow, but their missions will be standalone. This means that readers can pick up any book and not be totally lost as would be the case with the main THIRDS series since the plotline is continuous. We’ll also be meeting new characters and running into old characters that may just surprise you. There will be action, adventure, twists, turns, humor, sexy times, and a whole lot more. Hang onto you gummy bears, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.FF_Divider_Pink

Life for Dexter J. Daley has never been easy, but he’s always found a way to pick himself back up with a smile on his face. Taken from his home, and the arms of his boyfriend and THIRDS partner, Sloane Brodie, Dex finds himself in a situation as mysterious and lethal as the Therian interrogating him. Dex learns what he’s secretly believed all along: his parents’ death wasn’t an accident.

Discovering the whole truth about John and Gina Daley’s homicide sets off a series of events that will change Dex and Sloane’s lives forever. As buried secrets rise to the surface and new truths are revealed, Dex and Sloane’s love for each other is put to the test, with more than their relationship on the line. If traversing the waters of murder and secret government agencies wasn’t enough, something inexplicable has been happening to Dex—and nothing will ever be the same.

  1. Oh, I'm so happy there is more of Dex and Sloane on the way. I just found it really difficult to let those two go! Thank you, Charlie!

  2. THIRDS is one of my favorite series. I'm glad to hear that we have more books about Sloan and Dex to look forward to after the series is complete. Thanks for the giveaway.

  3. Thnks for the explanation! I was a little confused about the new series and how things were going to develop with the THiRDS series. I'm happy I can keep reading about my favorite characters and that nobody is going to disappear. ;) I look forward to it!

  4. CANT WAIT for more Dex & Sloane and the start of the TIN Series!!! Love these guys and all the trouble they get in to :) Also looking forward to hearing more about Seb & Hudson...

  5. Woa, can't wait. :3 The first book was so awesome, I need to read further, so I know what I would do if I win. XD

  6. The only series I can compare this to, especially the new avenue it's taking, is The In Death series by JD Robb. I really can't wait to see where next year takes us! Absolutely THE BEST series of its genre available.

  7. There can never be enough Thirds😄

  8. Can'take wait for more Thirds and now TIN!! tszymanski07(at)yahoo(dot)com

  12. The new series sounds awesome! Thanks for sharing a bit more about it. Looking forward to reading it.


  13. Somehow I missed Beyond The Books. What a nice surprise. :-)

  14. Much excitement - Dex is my most favorite clown, and Sloane putting up with him makes me grin! I am very much looking forward to seeing what they do as agents of TIN!

  15. I'm ecstatic to learn that the THIRDS Universe will be expanding. One of my fav series, ever. Happy to know that Sloane and Dex will be central figures in the TIN books. Absolutely love Dex; an 80's music fan with a penchant for cheesy snacks, pastry and BIG kitties....sigh. Congrats on your most recent books and the upcoming series.

    1. Congratulations, Cindra! You are our lucky winner of this month's author column from Charlie. An email is on its way to you. Mark :-)

  19. Can't wait to see the new developments in Dex and Sloane's lives!


  20. Forgive me, for I am behind on my emails (and not exactly going in chronological order with them because a few seem to be missing), but what does "TIN" stand for?

    I'm still in the early books of Thirds, and am excited to know there will be more to come. No waiting between books for me!

    1. Oops my email is:

      (Doesn't the email address register just by signing in in order to comment?)

  21. I'm really happy about this turn of events in the THIRDS series. I like the idea of more standalony missions around our beloved cast. But I have to say the news of more Seb & Hudson on page time might be what delights me the most. I can't wait for their book to come out ;)
