Finished up the manuscript for "The Sienna Sand" today. Now, off to my excellent editor it goes.
The cover (on this website's home page) is another marvel by Debora Bradseth at TugboatDesign.net Thanks to Deborah!

We got through Hurricane Dorian safely, and without incident. Thank you, God! It could have been much worse.
I'm finishing up my final edits of "The Sienna Sand", Zeke's sixth adventure. I'm planning to have it to my editor within two weeks, and am looking at a pre-release date of November 19th, and a release date of December 3rd. Very exciting!
Here's a blurb about it:

Hurricane Dorian sits camped out over Freeport as I write this, dumping thousands of gallons of water on the small island. I expect that UNESCO released the dolphins to the open sea several days ago so they can escape the storm. They'll return when it passes.

It's been a great summer- I hope yours is, too!
Over the next couple of weeks I'll be wrapping up my "heavy editing" for my latest (sixth) Zeke Traynor mystery, and getting it ready for my professional editor. The book's about 72,000 words right now, and I expect it will be about 74,000 when finished. So, yeah, soon!

Hope you had a great holiday!
Over the 4th, I hit 60,000 words in the sixth Zeke Traynor mystery, and have outlined the rest of the story! (A typical mystery novel has about 75,000 words.) No title yet, but I'm working on it...
So, we're about 80% done (plus editing) and I'm excited about this book. Should be available this autumn.

This is exciting! The Zeke Traynor Mystery Series will be featured in this Sunday's Edition of the Wilmington Star-News!
Ben Steelman, the Faith/Book/GA Features Reporter for the newspaper, interviewed me earlier this week, and is planning to publish that interview Sunday. Cool!
What's exciting is that this Sunday is the final day of the North Carolina Azalea Festival, a huge gathering that's been going on here annually s...Read Full Post »
