“Lonesome Cove”, my fourth novel is just about writing itself. I’ve got one hundred and ten pages written as of this morning. I’ll have to stop work on it later this week to prepare for a big event in Ocala this weekend, and since I should have the edits back for “Twisted Key” around the same time, I may take the next few weeks to work the manuscript over so I can get it off to the publishers in early April.
If all of that works out, “Twisted Key” may actually be on bookstore shelves closer to June than September. I’ll get back to work on “Lonesome Cove” as quickly as I can, but the publishing process does demand more than a little of my attention, so the writing will slow down. But this is a story that clamors to be written.
“Books By George” is an independent bookstore in the Six-Gun Plaza on Silver Springs Boulevard in Ocala. It’s a great place for book lovers. There will be several writers there on Saturday, 5 March, between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm, myself included. The woman arranging this group signing is presenting it as “Bookstock”, a 1960’s-themed book fair, with lots of attractions other than the authors.
So all you old hippies come on out, enjoy the day and buy some books!
