Cold Blooded V: Nightmare in Red Update

Cold Blooded V: Nightmare in Red continues on track for a late November release with 58K words done. A reader mentioned in an e-mail that I shouldn’t hurry my writing so as to publish the novel sooner. Believe me, that is not the case. I write about 2K words a day unless interrupted by life. I do so because the story in my head forces me to. Many days I have to enforce a stopping point because it is as many writers have pointed out, a good thing to stop in a place where the story can be embraced again with vigor. As many of you know, I do not write of drudgery. I write Pulp Fiction. My characters flood my head with interactions, plots, and humor. They are not a chore or a hurried money making scheme which will be missing pieces. That will not be the case. No one hurries my writer/assassin Nick McCarty - not even me.  :)

In 'Nightmare in Red' Nick tackles loose ends as the court allows serial killer Gerald Kensky loose because of principal witness Dan Lewis’s death. Kensky thinks after his release he will be untouchable. Nick and his Unholy Trio comrades think not. CIA Director Paul Gilbrech enlists his recruited Terminator to handle Isis plots involving Albanian and Middle Eastern terrorists working together. Their terror plots involve a military recruitment station and another strike at the heart of the American Republic’s beginning: Boston Harbor. The pairing of young Sonny Salvatore and Jean becomes a worry as it appears there is no way to stop either of them from following Nick’s black op past.

Here is the Cold Blooded Series link as Nightmare in Red will be joining them soon. :)

I do indeed, Raine. So much so, I don't think of it as work. :)
