Anyone else wanting to escape this year? I know I do, and reading has been one of my favorite ways to do that.
Lately I’ve been reading a lot of cookie recipes. But in between baking (and taste tasting) I’ve started The Sand Sea by Michael McClellan. The novel takes place on an alternate Earth consumed by war and conquest that mirrors our own Gilded Age. I’m only a short way in but am already hooked.
What I’ve Been Writing
While I’ve made progress on Sting of Power, and started working through the notes my editor sent me for Flicker of the Flame, I’ve got some exciting news about another project.
It’s coming soon: a multi-genre anthology not for the faint of heart.
The Rearview Mirror is a multi-genre anthology featuring fourteen authors from five countries. And yours truly is one of them.
Each selection features Harvey Cullum, who had chauffeured people around for thirteen years without incident. Until now. When he wakes up in the state mental institution after a tragic car wreck involving one of his passengers, he is pressed by police to recount the events surrounding the accident.
Harvey’s fares and the adventures they take Harvey on are presented in the stories in the anthology. Some are horror or fantasy, others are realistic. Some are sweet, others are gritty and one borders on erotica. All of them combine to show Harvey’s descent into madness and the way for him to return.
If you like psychological thrillers, then Rearview Mirror is a book for you. You’ll be able to grab your copy starting January 21, 2121 at most major online retailers. A free copy of The Rearview Mirror will be available for a limited time, and I’ll keep you posted on that.
