Back to the Acid Mines

with 8 comments

The first week of the new semester is now officially over, and I have to say it went pretty great.  Lots of students eager to get into classes.  And of course, I get to talk about all my favorite things, like archaeology and TV.  It’s going to be a busy semester, but I’m determined to get a lot done.

I’m going to write every week.  I’ve started outlining a new mystery series based in Ireland that I’m really excited about.  I’m going to write 3,000 words each week and then see how the project looks come the end of the semester.  I’m also going to whip Grave Indulgence (book three of the Henry Grave series) into shape and into production ASAP.  And then I’m going to spend a great deal of time trying to figure out how the hell to sell books.  Book marketing is a challenge for most writers, and a huge challenge for me.  I have to get a lot better at marketing Mediterranean Grave.  And I have to get ready for American Caliphate, which is still in the final pre-production phases.  I’m hoping it will be under contract any day now.  More on that as the information dribbles in.

Until then, happy writing!  And remember, always cook with at least the second freshest ingredients!

Mediterranean Grave

Here's the cover- it came out great!

Well, it finally came out – the new book!  I got my first one in the mail last week and I thought it was gorgeous.  I like how the silver lettering came out!  I’m getting my twenty copies in the mail on Tuesday, and I’ll then start sending out review copies in hopes of getting some good buzz.  I might also try to enter some contests.  Grave Passages picked up two Finalist Awards for Best Mystery, so maybe this time I can actually win one!

So if anyone out there enjoys a good mystery, or likes cruises, or both, I hope you’ll check out my book.  You can get it on Amazon for $12.95, which is a bargain!
