So much going on this summer.

Rising Warrior is awaiting formatting, the last step before the final files are sent in before the August 31 release, and preorders are nearing 4,000 units. I have a big surprise in store. It involves a certain woman that's been hanging around for a couple of books now.

Wayward Sons, a collaboration I'm doing with thriller author Stewart Matthews is nearly finished. It's with my beta team and will be submitted to Thomas & Mercer Publishing before the end of the month. I'm really stoked about this story, featuring a couple of characters from Rising Water, Jerry Snyder and DJ Martin, and set in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. We started working on this nearly a year ago.

I started Rising Moon last week and it will go on preorder at the end of this week. I think this one's going to be a lot of fun, since most of the action will take place on Jesse's island. We spent a week in Marathon last month and I'll be featuring some local characters and locations, with permission of course.

The Talk Write Podcast is quickly closing in on 1,000 subscribers. Once that number is met, we are going to have a drawing of one name from the list to win a new Kindle Fire. Just visit YouTube and search for my name.
