Would you like to win a free copy of my forthcoming, long-anticipated new novel THE LOST LEVEL (which will be in stores early next year)? Sure, you would. Click here for details.
As you’ve no doubt noticed, I don’t Blog here anymore, and instead, Blog almost daily on Tumblr. But the following is a list of tentative release dates, so I’ll put it here. This is as much for my benefit, as yours, because it helps me visualize what’s left, and what needs to be done. Usually, I regret posting things like this, because a year from now somebody will shout, “You said this would be done then” as if this is carved in stone, rather than fluid and influenced by all of life’s obstacles. Don’t be that person, because right now I’m dealing with some health stuff, and looking for someone to kick.
As always, this information is subject to change. Other things may be added. (Look for update on manuscript reviews and Lifetime Subscribers next week.)
