In short, I’m working on Talked to Death. The second draft is done, and has been sent off to my critique crew; they’re in the process of reading it.

Talked to Death is a little unique, in that it takes place over just 48 hours, at a library conference. Jamie, Liz, and Jon are presenting together in Oakland, unfamiliar territory; Pete has come along for the ride.

Given that the action is so condensed, there isn’t much relationship stuff in this one. BUT Talked to Death will also include a following short story, called Hearts, that only deals with relationship and family issues.

I still anticipate that Talked to Death will be out by mid-May. That’s the end of our semester here at the college, and it’s a good time to wrap up projects of all kinds.

The next book after Talked to Death will be Avenged to Death, in early fall. Before that, though, we’ll be having a sort of Christmas in July – another short story, which I’ll be serializing here on the blog, that fills in some detail that needs to come out before Avenged to Death. There’s not enough for a standalone book, and Avenged to Death is going to be plenty long itself without adding a story to it.

So y’all get a gift – Christmas in July! 🙂
