Progress Report

An update for those who care. 

I was really trying to get a new book out by Christmas this year, but, Alas, it will not happen (as if you didn't figure that one out already.)

I finished the yet-to-be-named Christmas story on the 5th. With much thought and trepidation, I decided that I could not get it properly edited and revised in time to release for the holidays. 

It was a tough decision because I am really excited about this story now that it is completed. With cover art, editing, revising and distribution all left up to the self-published author, time was on my side to polish it up before the holidays.

So, on the back burner it goes, until this summer. Then, I'll look at it with a fresh eye and get it out to the editors, clean it up and release it toward the end of October.

Now, my focus shifts back to the Van Stone sequel. You can follow my progress on the progress bar on this page. I have an end of March deadline for publication, so its just around the corner. Thanks for being so patient!

New Book Release

It's been awhile since I've posted anything. With a move to a new house and the holidays, time gets away. So you better look out now!

During this time, I also collaborated on a new book that was released on Black Friday ...

Here's the book description from Amazon:
