Okay, gang, here are some thoughts and updates for you:
Super Bowl: Very torn about the game. Being a Steelers fan I am required to HATE the Ravens (that's in the contract when you sign on to root for the Black and Gold). At the same time, if the Niners had won it would have tied them with the Steelers for 6 trophies. I couldn't have that, no way. So with a big catch in my throat, I was glad to see the Ravens pull it off. If nothing else, Ray Lewis got to go out on a high note.
Books: INTO THE MAGIC NIGHT, the latest Logan book, will be out about April. Publisher hasn't gotten anything definitive yet, but I'll keep you updated on this blog, Facebook, and Twitter.
First draft of COLD DISH, the next Logan novel and sequel to INTO THE MAGIC NIGHT has been completed. It will be out in 2014.
I'm also doing some outlining for Part III of the EASTLANDER CHRONICLES, as well as a new story featuring Jake Ross.
On a more personal level, I continue working on my golf game (and there's plenty of work to do) and do my day job and try to be the best husband and dad and friend, etc that I can be. Like everyone, I go through good days and bad...sometimes money is plenty and sometimes it's not and you just go day to day and take it one day at a time. I thank God for my blessings--my family and my friends, especially. But most of all, I am thankful for you--the fans, those who spend your money to buy my stuff and who take the time to email me and friend me on FB and who follow me on Twitter (RickNichols3) and who let me know how much you enjoy my books. It really does mean a lot to me.
