What's in the hopper

Working on two manuscripts, they're both coming along nicely. The first is a follow-up to DOG ISLAND. It picks up the unresolved conflict, and carries the story into another arena. It is way too early to let you in on any details, but the working title is DEAD MAN'S KEY. That title may not stick, but it's okay for now.

The second is a Southern Gothic, titled IT WAS AUGUST. Inspired by a short story I wrote and got published in WORDSMITH, the Tampa Writers' Alliance annual anthology, it expands the story and delves a little deeper into the psychological pathology of a killer's mind and the people who refuse to believe he could kill.

Another story line is running through my brain, screaming for attention. This one will be more or less true, and could be the most powerful of all. But it will have to wait until I finish the other two.

What's coming out of your word processor? Do tell!

  1. Kudos for working on multiple projects. I really wish I could. My first book, The Coparazzi is due out in Jan I can't concentrate on anything else right now because of all the other work involved in seeing my book through. I do have another completed manuscript that needs a lot of revising and I can't wait to tackle it.
