It’s been a while since my last update and since my last release, so I thought it was a good idea to check in and let everybody know that I’m still here and still writing. I have my recent health issues pretty much under control right now, which has allowed me to get back to focusing on writing new words again.

I’m about a quarter of the way through a weird west novella that I’m tentatively titling Carrion Canyon. It’s been going in fits and starts, but a couple of days ago I had that moment where the story just “clicks” into place. I liken it to the way a puzzle piece or a dovetail joint fits together. For me, this is the moment when I know my subconscious has finally figured out where the story needs to go. I love it when this happens; gets me excited about the book each and every time it happens.

I also have a horror novel manuscript titled Dream Eater that’s sitting at about the 1/3 mark. Once I finish Carrion Canyon up, I might jump back on that one and knock it out. We’ll see where the muse takes me when the time comes.

As for 2018, I have some idea of which projects I’d like to work on. Another Tom Miller novella is surely on the short list. And I still want to write book four in the Badlands series. I think that would be super fun. Outside of these two books, I’m hesitant to speculate. But, rest assured, I’ll be working on a bunch of new stuff and I’ll let you know the moment it’s been released.

Until next time, thanks for reading. Without you, these stories make no sound.
