News: December 2013
As we enter the holiday season, I'd like to wish all of my readers a merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah and blessed Yule.
With the year winding down, I am gearing up for the release of The Horse Thieves and Other Tales of the New West. I am particularly excited because I saw the preliminary sketches for the cover art just a week ago and can't wait to show it to the world. Stay tuned here and on Facebook for frequent updates as we approach the release.
Last month, I also had an article about character development in the November issue of The Writer, which you can read online HERE for free. If you've never read the magazine before, I highly recommend that writers of fiction, non-fiction and poetry check out a few issues for a lot of encouraging and insightful articles.
Finally, I'm continuing work on my latest manuscript, the sci-fi novel Abe Titterman and the Key to the Universe. I'm excited to announce that I finished part one of the book last month and have begun work on the prologue for part two. I hope you all have an opportunity to read it some day!
That's all for this month. Until next time, happy holidays and thanks for reading!
