Hi there. Another week has gone by and time for another post. It has been a busy week with several things going on, but I still had a little time to write. I added almost five thousand words to my latest venture. Bentley is an action adventure novel and a spin off from the Tannion series. Bentley shows up in two of the Tannion books as a friend of Jim Tannion and he finally gets his own adventure.

Just got word that Book 4 in the Tannion Series, which has been with my editor, is almost ready. It should be in my hands by Friday this week and then the real work begins. I will take a few days to go over and accept the changes and then I have to figure out how to publish on Amazon. The first three books in the Tannion Series were published by Createspace which no longer exists and which directs me to Amazon.

I have already purchased a cover for the book, but I will have to finalize that as well. Being the first time with kindle direct publishing, it might take to the end of the year to get it out, but I will get it published. Also the fact that we will be travelling for two months before Christmas will have an impact. There should be wifi everywhere we go, so it still should happen.

That's it for this week. Have a good one and enjoy the book you are reading, but if you need something new, give Tannion a try.

Hi there. I thought it was time to add another post, even if not a lot has happened, but I did say I would try to add something every week. I haven't received the edited version of book 4 in the Tannion Series yet and it isn't due for another week or two.  I have managed to add a little over three thousand words to Bentley my spin off from the Tannion series. Not that much this week, but it has been a busy week in other ways. Writing is only a hobby.

My writing style is very unstructured. I usually have an idea where the next chapter is going, but not often much beyond that.  Every once in a while I throw in a surprise for myself and I just did that.  In this chapter of Bentley I have him being drug into FBI headquarters and placed in an interrogation room making him look like a criminal of some sort, even to the guard who is standing outside.  The line I last wrote was  'We can talk completely off the record but I needed to make sure that your coming in looked to be for real. I think you might be close to having your cover blown and didn’t want to take any chances.'

I have no idea where the idea came from or for that matter, what I am going to do about it. The only thing I know for sure is that I am going to leave it in and work with it, Wish me luck.

Good morning.  Now that I am back to writing, it is good to be able to add a post here a little more often. Maybe I'll try to add one a week.  We'll see.  At this time, the fourth book in the Tannion Series (Tannion - Future Past) is still with my editor and I have now completed my initial self edit of all my books. They will need a final professional edit of course, but at least my edit is complete.  Now I am into writing again.

I have more than twenty thousand words on my next book titled Bentley. Bentley is a spin off from the Tannion Series as the main character FBI agent Lane Bentley shows up in two of the Tannion books including a large part in Tannion - Revenge (Book 8 in the Tannion Series).

Bentley picks up where Tannion - Revenge leaves off.  New York is firmly in the hands of Phil Redmond and his group, but maybe not as firmly as they thought as there is a push from another source.  Bentley gets involved and finds himself in dangerous waters where he wishes he had Tannion around to help him out, but he knows that he will have to do it by himself.

Take a look at the book list to the right and if you are interested in a new character with a different slant on life and haven't read Tannion yet, pick him up at
