I’ve already started a short story trying my hand at some paranormal prose. I’m also thinking of creating a private detective series. Of course, the Circle City Mystery Series is my first priority, but that doesn’t mean I can’t channel my talents in different directions.
Perfidy is doing well and I am getting a lot of very positive feedback from readers. Many acquaintances who’ve read the book have told me they love it and can’t wait to read the next one, Inconspicuous (September 2013). These comments have sparked me to push myself harder to produce even better works. The third book in the series is in the hands of the publisher so I hope it will be accepted soon.
Of course, one thing that makes it difficult to make time for writing is the amount of time spent promoting myself and Perfidy. I will be at the Schaumburg Township District Library on Saturday, January 12, 2013 with author D. M. Pirrone author of No Less in Blood. We will be speaking on how we went from the first word to publication. I love doing this sort of thing. I hadn’t really thought I’d like public speaking, but I do. I plan to follow up with libraries and other local bookstores to set up talks and book signings. But when will I have time to write?
With the necessity to use social media, appearances, phone calls and the like, it is easy for an author to get so busy that the writing suffers. I didn’t write anything except a blurb in this blog during the month of December. I was so glad that I didn’t have anywhere to be that last weekend of December through New Year’s Day. I was able to find my creative energy again.
So, keep an eye out for a variety of works from me soon. I hope those of you out there who purchased Perfidy will send feedback via the Contact Page of this website or through comments on the Barnes and Noble or Amazon websites.
Thank you for your support and have a wonderful and productive New Year.
Until next time.
