A Novel Finish and an Interview



This week will see the finish of Cold Blooded Book II: Killer Moves. I’ve reached the 114k word mark, so the end is in sight. It will be available for pre-order on May 1st, and released on May 24th as planned. When the editing process begins this weekend, I will also start writing the third book in my Rick Cantelli, P.I. series. It’s never a good idea to take a break from writing. Writing a new novel while editing a finished novel eases the process, giving me a break when the editing gets tedious. Also, with the new commandment now in place for writers, ‘Write or Disappear’, gains made with prior publications can evaporate right before our eyes if we don’t keep at our passionate pursuit.  :)

BTS E-mag did an interview with me a few days ago. They have a wonderful publication with reasonable ad rates, and a host of marketing options for their bi-monthly on-line magazine. With stories, reviews, and interviews, BTS publishes the most entertaining E-mag available. If anyone would like to take a look at the interview they did with me, here’s the link.

I have a feeling this is going to be one of those weird years in publishing, Charles. It sure won't be boring though.

Thanks, Justin. I finished Cold Blooded: Killer Moves on Saturday. I'm editing it now, so it's on schedule. I appreciate your interest.
