In just over two weeks, the sixth book in the DEAD series will be out. Dead: Confrontation will be the largest offering to date in a series that boasts five volumes that each come in at 100,000 words, give or take a few thousand. I am very proud of this arc in my story. It took a life of its own a long time ago, but this particular piece went in directions I never even remotely imagined. I can't wait for the reader reaction. That is the reward for me.
In other news...I am anxiously waiting for my tattoo artist to finish the custom design of a zombified version of Ace Frehley. I spent 47 years of my life without one, but I have decided to take the plunge...and what two things do I relate to more than KISS and zombies?
And then there is the newest addition to our home...Tyrion the Border Collie. Do not let that sweet face fool you...he is a handful, plus some. He is the version of the Border Collie that they warn you about. You have to keep him busy and occupied or he will create all sorts of chaos.
And now...I will begin writing the next book in my Dakota series. This will be fun because I get to dig through all sorts of interesting Civil War facts. This story will play out as the first major engagement of the war happens--First Manassas/First Bull Run. The only thing I will be giving away is that Henry House Hill will feature prominently. Also, I will be dusting off Uncivil War--my thriller that brings up the possibility of a full-scale, modern day race war that completely destroys the United States.
