New story, just in time for Halloween

For those keeping score at home, the new book is parked firmly at 81,000 words, with an ending to go. I'm hoping to wrap it up soon (and figure out a title).

But in the meantime, I was asked to read a little something at Bedtime Stories in Spokane last week. Soooooo...I came up with WISH YOU WERE HERE AT THE BOTTOM OF A WELL, a bit of a ghost story based on the true disappearance of industrialist F. Lewis Clark.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the piece, so I've posted it for sale as an eBook on Amazon, Nook, and Kobo, for the whopping price of .99¢ with all proceeds going to Humanities Washington.

Happy All Hallows Eve!

High Plains Literary Drifter

Howdy pardner, I'll be winding down four weeks of travel with a quick stop in Seattle for this year's Lit Crawl (I'll be at the Hugo house, reading for exactly seven minutes).

And then I'll be in Billings for the High Plains Book Festival.

I'll be enjoying Friday's big gala event and then doing my thing on Saturday. Also, Songs of Willow Frost is up for an award (but remember, no wagering).

Books on the Underground

In NYC the subway has rats the size of house cats. In London the Underground has books. Like mine. For free. You win, London. I love this idea.

Time for me to fly

I've been writing ALL SUMMER LONG. By that I mean, head-down, eyes-forward, fugue-state, little contact with the real world, living in my Batman pajamas and Mariners hoodie (yes, all writers are also part-time fashion criminals), in a common-law marriage with my laptop WRITING. And it's been wonderful.

I'm just shy of 80,000 words on the next novel. No title yet, which is driving me bonkers, but I'm sure it'll manifest and introduce itself to me soon.

But, I also have a smattering of book travel to Connecticut, Louisiana, Virginia, Chicago, Spokane, Seattle, and Billings. So, dusting off the suitcase, loading up on audio books, and bracing myself for a vigorous airport pat-down.

See you soon.
