Weekly Update

  • I've completed the first draft of 17th Parallel. I'm about a fifth of the way through the first pass of revisions. There's a lot to do.
  • The sequel to I, Crimsonstreak is almost ready to undergo a significant overhaul. I also plan to write material for the book's appendices.
  • I'm toying with the idea of writing a "memoir" by the great Mortimer P. Willoughby. I think I have the basic concept nailed down. I need to outline and refine it.
  • I'll be at the Hastings in Richmond, Indiana, on June 30 for a book signing. I'd love to see a lot of my old high school pals there.
  • I'm working on a first draft of a satirical science fiction book. I'm holding this one close to the vest for now, but I really do like the concept.
  • Unless I continue to write the first draft of my latest book at a breakneck pace, I want to devote time next week to polishing and submitting short stories.
  • The last bit of news has nothing to do with me. I'm still glad to share it. A class action complaint has been filed against scammy PublishAmerica. You can read more about that here. I've read through the complaint...and it's pure gold. I hope everyone gets their money back...and that this drives PA into the ground.
