Hard Case Book V: Blood and Fear is nearing completion. I’ll be approaching the 100,000 word mark Sunday night. For the fans of the series, this episode will not disappoint. Between girls’ softball coaching, street fights, Boko Haram terrorists, and an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) threat, John Harding’s crew have their work cut out for them. The Monster Squad is all back with a lot more on the line to lose, and therefore to also protect.
Best of all, this series entry will have a new collaborator on production. My Grandson Colin, who turns thirteen this May, will be doing the cover for Blood and Fear. I bought him a new iMac Retina setup, because he produced his own sports and music video clips so well just using his phone. It has Final Cut Pro editing software, and he produced a cover exactly to my specs. He will be on board with RJ Parker Publishing Inc as my Illustrator. I should have a sample of his cover to post next week. He’s fine tuning the text now. His name will be listed in the credits from now on. I know someone beyond this trail of tears will be looking down, and loving every second of Colin’s new endeavor.
