Coming soon...


  Very few of my readers will remember this. Well, that's because my readers are very few. And you have to be of a certain age, so that really narrows it down. But anyway, when I used to go to the movies as a kid, before the previews started, they’d flash up on the screen, COMING SOON… (Nowadays you just get a ratings screen assuring you the following is appropriate for the audience – whether it’s appropriate or not. But that’s beside the point.)

   Last week I put up my first ever blog post. And, surprisingly, I got a few dozen visits the first day. I even got a comment from a friend who suggested I add the option to follow by email. I’m embarrassed to say it has taken me the entire week to figure out how to do that, but if you scroll to the bottom of the page, there it is. Lucky y’all.

   So I spent so much time trying to figure out the follow-by-email option that I didn’t come up with anything clever to blog about. Therefore, I thought I’d try to wow you with vacant promises of things to come. So, COMING SOON…


  First of all, more blog posts. Okay, maybe that’s not such a big wow. But I promise as I master the technology, I’ll post more often and make an effort to throw some stuff up here that’ll make it worth your while to drop by.

  Second, I might drop a hint here and there about what to expect from future Red Wolf novels. In fact, I’m going to do that right now. I’m writing the final chapter of The Dragon of Doughton Park at the moment, and the first draft will go out to beta readers in the next few weeks. For those of you who already read The Draculata Nest, here are a few tidbits. (If you haven’t read TDN, they might be spoilers. Don’t read any further. I mean it.)

1.      Everyone’s favorite character, Nicole, is back; and as we learn more of the prophecy, it seems she just may be a part of it.

2.      Danielle, the girl a few readers wanted to punch in the mouth, is back, too. And she’s no longer human.

3.      The ending is full of surprises, including one I bet nobody could ever guess. In fact, I’ll give a free ebook to anyone who can. Post a comment or shoot me an email if you want to try. If you get lucky, I’ll contact you anonymously and we’ll work out the deal.

 Until next time…
