My home is on Kauai, the northern-most island in the Hawaiian Island chain. It’s the most remote inhabited island on earth. It’s peaceful here. If I can keep my mind off the beach, I get good writing done.
The Howling Cliffs is the 1st sequel to my award-winning River Bones. The synopsis:
Sara Mason’s dedication to solving missing person cold cases with love interest, Huxley Keane, takes them deep into the unhealthy and dangerous Vietnam jungle searching for his MIA brother’s remains.
The Howling Cliffs follows two plot lines. One is that Sara Mason solves cold cases. The other is that her love interest, Huxley Keane, searches for his MIA brother’s remains in Vietnam. This story opens deep in the Vietnam jungle, moves to Sara’s cold case location on Kauai in Hawaii, and then back to California’s Sacramento River Delta, which is her home. It’s also the setting for the original story in River Bones. In the next sequel, a young Vietnamese boy holds a clue to finding Huxley’s brother’s remains; and, Sara solves a cold case in San Francisco based on those findings.
The Howling Cliffs is presently in eBook format at both Smashwords and Amazon. It will go to paper sometime this year.
We all know how important promoting our work has become. How do you get the word out both off and online?
My Write It Right – Tips for Authors, Vol. I will not have a Volume II. The new title is Write It Right – Tips for Authors – The Big Book. Well, that’s the tentative title. I have written so many articles pertaining to writing that have been published in myriad places, it’s difficult to single out a handful to publish in a second volume. So I’m going to publish nearly all of them in one volume. That will go to eBook and paper.
I also wish to publish more of my short stories. People love the craziness of my flash fiction in my collection Off Center in the Attic. I have some stories that are zanier than those in the first collection.
