It’s a new year and some exciting things are coming up in 2015. In the Spring, I’ll have a short story published in an anthology through Velvet Morning Press. http://velvetmorningpress.blogspot.com/2014/12/a-month-long-writing-challengeand.html
The theme is “Legacy” and I’m pretty sure they aren’t expecting stories of a dark or twisted nature, but they said I could let my imagination run wild so…
My third novel (still untitled) is scheduled for the end of 2015. It will bring together some of the characters of Resolve and Measure Twice. If you read the final pages of Measure Twice, you may have some idea where this is going. Gee… I wonder what would happen if Jackson Channing and Cyprus Keller were to meet. I bet the result would be anything but boring.
I’m currently working on another novel that is completely separate from my other works. The working title is Bolt Action Remedy and it’s just your typical mystery that involves an assassination, mental instability, tons of snow, a few well-placed bullets, an Olympian, a sadistic enforcer for a drug gang, and the sport of biathlon. So… the usual.
2014 was a great year. Resolve racked up some big award nominations and Measure Twice hit an Amazon Kindle Bestseller list. Without you – the readers – who have been incredibly supportive by spreading the word and posting reviews, much of this would not have happened. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m anticipating 2015 being every bit as exciting as this past year and I wish nothing but the best for each of you.
