Hey gang. First of all, my thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Aurora, Colorado. As I continue to hear of the acts of heroism it lets me know that the American spirit does live on. Those who wish to politicize this tragedy to further their own agenda(s)--well, I pity you. It wasn't anyone's fault--except the person who did the crime. He alone bears the responsibility for this horrific act.

In the near future, you will be seeing more available from me. Right now, I'm averaging one novel a year. Between my full time job and my domestic responsibilities, that's about all I can do novel-wise. But I do have some ideas for some short stories and novellas, including mysteries, fantasy, and who knows what else. My publisher (who not only is terrific, but I think a tad overworked) has given me permission to publish these little nuggets myself as E-books. It is a learning process for me so be patient as this isn't as easy as you might think.

In addition to that, I'm developing the concept for the next (#5) Logan novel. Number four is done except for the editing and polishing phases so I'm juggling that as well.

Life, my dear readers, is a fragile and delicate thing. My religion says that it is a vapor, it appears for a while and then is gone. It is so true. My kids are grown and I can't remember where the time went. Seems like yesterday they were born. My daughter starts pharmacy school in the fall and we're so proud of her. My son works locally and gets to hit golf balls with me, so how cool is that? Anyway, take each day as a gift. Those who went to the movie theatre never suspected it would be their last day. Did any of them leave with words unsaid? Or maybe words they were going to take back but never did?

Tell those you love today that you love them. Mend fences and knock down those walls that separate. Life is too short to do otherwise.

Thank you all for your support. It means so much to me. Peace and love.

Rick
