Managed to work our dog Darwin into my last short story.
Today I wrote THE END to the sixth of six short stories scheduled for my next little collection, and it marks the end of the rough draft stage of my three writing projects for 2014. On an unrelated note, I just finished watching last night’s Master Chef and now I want a gourmet donut.
Now comes the fun stuff: editing and/or revising if they need it. I’ve got a steamy adventure romance. I’ve got the second in the Boo-Done-It murder mystery series. And I’ve got the small collection that will tie together my two series (Boo-Done-It and The Cowboy’s Baby).
If the editing and publication goes well on these three, then I’ll start what will be my major project for 2015, a horror novel.
Until then, check out ARROYO, a weird western. See if you like romantic comedy with a fairy tale base: THE COWBOY’S BABY and THE COWBOY’S BABY GOES TO HEAVEN. The first Lockhart mystery about our dog Boo Radley and her fictious ability to drag her owners onto murder scenes–TALKING TO THE DEAD GUYS. And if you like quirky, then you’ll like TWISTED RIXTER, some of my recent short stories.
You can find all of them here at the Amazon.com Kindle store.
Here’s the inspiration for my mystery novels.
WHAT I READ THIS WEEK: Brood of Bones by A. E. Marling. Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris. Raney by Clyde Edgerton.
Still a few copies available
Two copies available.
Join us this Friday from 5 pm to 8 pm at the Lockhart Shoppes on Main (101 South Main) for my first book signing of THE COWBOY’S BABY GOES TO HEAVEN.
This is part of the First Friday event many of the merchants around the courthouse square have been participating in, staying open late for shoppers and tourists. Should be fun. Food, drink, antiques, collectibles, the beautiful view of our courthouse, and Black’s BBQ just around the corner.
WHAT I JUST FINISHED READING: Eleven Days by Donald Harstad. The New Orleans Zombie Riot of 1866 by Craig Gabrysch.
