Obligatory Photo of First Proof

We authors always get all jazzed when we hold the first copy of our new book in our hands. I am currently reviewing the proof for errors and, as usual, finding a few. But I will have the revised, final edition up very soon. Then I'll have to get the Kindle version up and it's all systems go. Looking forward to launch!


Interview on WriteStream Radio

The internet continues to open up so many new channels of communication between creative people and entertainment consumers. My friend, Daria Anne, besides being an accomplished author herself, has founded the WriteStream Radio Network, an internet station. She interviews authors on her Tuesday show and was kind enough to give me a whole hour on February 11. We talked about all sorts of things, including my upcoming book, Underlake.

Here's the podcast, if you have to clean out a closet or something and want something to listen to while you work.
