Last Night, This Happened

Last night I lit up a cigar and made one last push to complete the latest draft of Lie with the Dead. Five minutes after I tossed the stub of that cigar, I posted the following to Twitter:

It felt great to get that off my plate for at least a while longer. My editor will comb through it one more time, then I’ll have a final run-through, and then it’s just proofreading and prep for publication. I do not have a time frame on that, but of course I will continue to keep you updated.

For the new readers out there, Lie with the Dead is the next book in the The Pack series, a sequel to Winter Kill. If you haven’t read Winter Kill, I recommend downloading “Bravo Four” for the low low price of 99 cents. “Bravo Four” is a short story, and it also includes an extended preview of Winter Kill.

In the meantime, there is no rest for the wicked. I’ve got another writing gig cooking, I need to write a column by month’s end, another short story, and if I can swing it, I’ve got yet one more short story due by August 1st.

It’s been a good summer for the Exit Strategy.
