It’s becoming painfully obvious that I can’t do a five-days-a-week blog and also put in the time I need to on the actual writing projects — not to mention I don’t really lead an exciting enough life to have anything to talk about five days a week, so here’s my new plan: we’re probably looking at two posts a week, somewhere in that neighborhood, and those are gonna be on random days based on when I actually have time to write something. I hate to give up on the five-days-a-week thing, but it just ain’t working for me right now, and I don’t want to fake it.
That said, here’s the latest: I’m moving right along on The Bombay Beach Boys, the new Boone Butters story. I’ve set a goal of having this thing finished and out in the world by the end of September, and right now it looks like that’s gonna work out just fine. Speaking of Boone, you can get the first short story, Roomies, for Kindle, Nook and at Smashwords so you’ll be ready for his next adventure. Boone is also a major player in my novel Squirrel Eyes — also, amazingly enough, available for Kindle, Nook, at Smashwords and in paperback. This new Boone story is longer than the first, and if I’m doing it right, things are building towards the third story, which will be longer still. They’re all stand-alone tales, though.
Meanwhile, I’m plugging away at assembling the collected version of Pete, Drinker of Blood. If all goes well, that will be available in October, in paperback as well as ebook, with a terrific cover by Sam Carr.
Speaking of — I’d better get back to work on it. More soon.
