...All But Done...

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!

The next Zeke Traynor mystery!

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.

Many of you know that I've been working on the fifth Zeke Traynor Mystery, "The Bakken Blade."  I'm about 60% done with the writing, and plan to publish it early next year.


It's an interesting story, centering on the oil industry in New Town, North Dakota, where Zeke is tracking down a killer.  Clive, Kimmy and Tracy Johnson are back, too!


If you haven't read The Crisp Poleward Sky (the 4th Zeke Traynor novel), you may want to grab a copy.  I...
