Readers & Friends,
I hope your new year is off to a great start!
Claudia, Milo (our dog), and I are heading home to Roaring Gap, North Carolina on the final leg of our annual Midwestern holiday tour. After visiting family and friends in Kentucky, Illinois, and Wisconsin and traveling over 2,000 miles, I’m ready to take down decorations, get back to my desk, and reflect on the year ahead.
With regard to 2019 writing goals, I’m excited to be halfway through BUTCHER ROAD, another murder mystery set in North Carolina. I’ve set an objective to publish this novel by June 21st (the first day of summer), and it’s currently ahead of schedule. When the time comes, pre-publication discounts will be available for early orders. Click HERE to learn more about my progress.
Other goals I’ve set for 2019 include participating in more book signings and book club meetings. I enjoy meeting and learning from readers. If you’re interested, here’s my ongoing OFFER for book clubs in the North Carolina/Virginia area.
I look forward to hearing from you in the coming year.
