Hey gang.

I was given some advice by a trusted writer friend of mine who felt that I needed to branch out and forget Logan for a while and write something else...something as far away from the Logan-esque genre that I could do.

One of the realities of writing in this day and age is that series books often taper off in sales and in some respects, Logan is no exception. My sales aren't climbing through the roof with him anymore and every instinct in my being tells me to forget John Logan and go onto write something else.

And I'm working on it.

But there is this pull...something that keep drawing me back to that houseboat in Coral Bay where a former spy sits and watches the water and tries to make amends for this past. I feel there are more stories to tell and I have decided to tell them in their due time--even if you don't buy them. I fought the urge when I was first published to write for the markets--that's a torture in itself. Vampire novels were the rage at one point…
Hey gang. First of all, Happy Thanksgiving. I hope yours was nice, surrounded by loved ones and plenty of food. Both my children came in for the day and I stuffed myself silly, so yes it was a good day.

I know it's been awhile since I've posted. I swear the time gets away from me all too fast.

AS far as what is in the publishing pipeline, 2019 should see the rerelease of the John Logan series, starting with SURVIVOR'S AFFAIR, with new covers and new looks. Many people want to read the first one but only have been able to find them in the 4 book boxed set. So this will be an opportunity for those of you who haven't done so, to start your Logan collection. I hope you will enjoy them!

Peace

SALES ALERT!

THE JUDAS MAN

IT'S HERE

Finding a dead man on his houseboat was not what John Logan needed. Things have become uncertain with Teri and Logan just wants to know why she's not returning his calls. The last thing he wanted was to come home to a murder. The dead man on Logan's houseboat leaves few clues to who he was or why he was there. Who killed him and why? And why are people suddenly after Logan? Add an enthusiastic reporter snooping around asking dangerous questions and things could get deadly.
The investigation will bring Logan back to the one place he'd swore he'd left for good and reveal secrets his former bosses don't want to know.
Get it here!

Changes

Today it's official. I have had the publishing rights to the John Logan books (and future books) returned to me. What does this mean?

It means that for the first time, I am becoming a self published author. This decision was not made easily but it felt right. The Internet has changed publishing tremendously in the past decade and the ability of writers to take more control over their content and characters was a big factor in my decision.

It also means THE JUDAS MAN  is being put on an accelerated schedule and I hope to have it ready for you in July.

There are some learning curves ahead for me but I know this is going to be a great opportunity for me.

Peace,

Changes

I have multiple lives. My work (i.e. regular job), my home/personal life, my writing life. It's a challenge at times to balance all of them and sometimes I feel like one or more of them get out of whack. When that happens, I have to make changes.

I'm doing that to my writing life. This morning, I began taking steps to making some changes in my writing life. What will this mean for you? Not much, really, except that I think it will open the doors for me to share even more of my stories and thoughts with you. I can't discuss it further right now until the paperwork is signed so stay tuned!


Angry much?

Being an author I have to maintain a presence on social media. This morning I'm scrolling through my feeds and I see 3 different posts telling me something that I need to be outraged about.

Before I walk out my door in the morning, there is someone telling me something I need to be mad about.

And heaven forbid, you don't get mad about it. Or as angry as they think you should be. Then they turn on you and you get called--well, choose any of the common terms: racist, bigot, unpatriotic, Trump lover, never Trumper, liberal, conservative--oh, the list is endless.

First of all, how do you find the mental and emotional energy to be outraged and ticked off 24/7? Isn't that exhausting? I couldn't do it. And let me see if I get this straight: you're walking around angry and upset over something that by all odds, doesn't really affect you anyway? Are you like the people who weren't even Native American mad at the Redskins name? You do know the real honest to goodness…
