Heyo! I'm still alive! :)
Apologies I've been MIA the past...oh...couple weeks. I locked myself away to bang away at Taken With A Grain of Salt, the sequel to Salted, most of this month. (I'm near 50,000 words so far, for those of you looking for an update.) I remain optimistic for an early December release so keep checking back for more updates!
I didn't write a single word this past week, however. When Karen and I moved into our house, we discussed how we would someday transform the dirt patch/rocky abyss that was our backyard. Yeaaaah. About that. Fast forward a couple years and the backyard remained a dirt patch. Anyway, Karen and Little Miss headed to Indy last week believing I intended to write like crazy with both of them gone. Instead, I redid the whole backyard - new irrigation lines, moving trees, etc. Mark one giant checkmark off the Honey-Do list. ;)
Meanwhile, a ton of great news piled up in the time I traded the writer's hat for a landscaper's. Let's kick it off with this little video:
Uh, so yeah. That's awesome, right?
Then, I learned Salem's Vengeance has already received two reviews, both of them 5-stars. You can read them here and here. Hopefully they're the beginning of more great reviews to come!
Finally, I have some sweet news for you Chicagoans...
I'll be at City Lit Books (2523 N. Kedzie Blvd) on Saturday, August 2nd from 3:30-5 p.m. to sign/sell copies of both Salem's Vengeance and Salted. This bookstore is fantastic! Seriously. Even if you can't make it over to say hey and have me sign your book(s), you need to swing by and check this store out sometime.
Okay, think that about does it for this post. Only one more week until the Salem's Vengeance release! I posted an excerpt for those interested. Thanks again for your support! Can't wait to share this story with you all!
