Hi there. Another week has passed. We are into our fall trip and spending the first week in Reno Nevada. It was a two day drive in a lot of snow storms to get here and as a result I didn't get much writing done but we did make it in one piece.

Still working on the edits for Future Past (Book 4 in the Tannion Series). Getting close to the end, but still a bit to go then I will need to get it into a format I can publish and get the cover. Still a few months away, but I can see the light at the end.

A few more days in Reno and then off to Escondido California. Probably won't get much writing done, but will get to see some sunshine.

Talk again soon.

Hi there. Another week has come and gone. I am still working through the edits for book 4 in the Tannion Series - Tannion - Future Past. There were a lot of edits and my time has been limited. Getting ready to take off for the winter.

My wife and I aren't true snowbirds. We live in Canada so staying home for the winter when I don't have to makes no sense to me. Not a winter sport fan. Got to go to where it is warm or at least warmer. A true snowbird goes south to the same place every year. We tend to go south some of the time and then we stay in a variety of areas and sometimes we head to completely different parts of the world. This fall it will be the southern US but after the new year, we aren't sure. Mexico for a while and then maybe southern Europe. Time will tell.

Still working on Bentley the spin off from the Tannion series. Added a little more than a thousand words this past week and now stand over 34000 words and counting. Not sure where it is going yet and have slowed down partly due to some plot uncertainties. It will work itself out as it always does.

After the winter I hope to have the fourth book in the Tannion series published and then I need to look at marketing. I would like to sell a few books to make sure I can afford to publish the next in the series. I would love to hear from anyone who has any good sales ideas that won't cost me a pretty penny.

Talk again soon and next time from somewhere warmer.

Good morning. Another week has come and gone. I have been working through the edits on the fourth book in the Tannion series (Tannion - Future Past). Still feel like the dumb kid in grade six, but the edits are making for a better read and that is what I asked for. Looks like a very good job.

I have also had a little time for writing. Bentley, a spin off from the Tannion series, is coming along. I added another 2000 words last week which isn't too bad considering that time I spent on the edits for Future Past and the fact that it was my birthday on Saturday.

It was my birthday but it was also my oldest son's birthday. Having a child born on your birthday means children's parties for your birthday, but this year was a little better. We partied at a local brew pub. He turned 40 which might be why we didn't go to some kid's place.

This next week should bring the edits close to the end and I hope to have a few more words written but we are also getting ready to head out for the winter This year we will be spending some time in the southern US before Christmas, but then I hope to head further out after the new year. I will keep you posted.

Talk again soon.

Another week has come and gone. The big news was that I received the edited copy of Tannion - Future Past (Book 4 in the Tannion Series) back from my editor. The bad news is, getting the edits back always makes me feel like the dumbest guy in grade six. So many editorial changes, but in the end, I know it makes for a better read without changing the story.

I was also able to add another 3000 words or more to my current project. Bentley is a spin off from The Tannion Series and is currently over thirty one thousand words and growing. Not sure where it is going yet as I need some time to think about it for a while, but it will get there.

I won't have much time for the next few days though. It is my birthday on Saturday as well as my oldest son's, so we are working on some birthday plans, but you know a lot of my time will be working on the edits I just received.  It will keep me busy for a long time and then I'll need to work on getting it published.

Now if I could just talk a few people into buying some of my books it would help.

Talk again soon.
