I’ve got a bit of a writing hangover…
I began writing Unfinished Business in early 2010. Its completion was delayed by the 3 books I wrote in the meantime (No Good Deed, Backseat to Justice and Pump It Up) and threatened by a couple of new ideas, which I had to force myself to put on the back burner. I also had a few struggles with plot lines and such.
Nevertheless, after 3 years Unfinished Business is…well…finished.
I’m very proud of it, it is already getting extremely positive feedback and I’ve been asked a few times about a sequel. I hate sequels, but it might be necessary – again (click here to read about my last sequel).
With all that being said…I would really like to kick back, take the rest of the summer off and not worry about another book (or books). I’d like to just hang out and have nothing more pressing to do than watch the Red Sox.
Unfortunately, that’s not happening.
I’ve got a new book in the works and I want to finish the first draft before Christmas so it will be ready for release next spring. It’ll be a fun story about a perpetual loser who feels his only chance at having a good life is the witness protection program…unfortunately, he hasn’t witnessed anything.
I also have an idea for another novel, an epic story compared to all my others.
I have a co-writing project with Armand Rosamilia to do, the sequel to our novella Dying Days: The Siege of European Village.
On top of those I have a few other book ideas I need to at least start before I forget them – and then there’s the ever present Full Circle.
All of this while I still have to promote Unfinished Business at various events and signings.
So, for me, there will be no break in the action. Like drinking too much on Sunday night…when Monday morning rolls around you have to suck it up, have a few Tylenols for breakfast and get your ass to work.
I will jump back into the fire…right after I enjoy the 4th of July Holiday!
It’s one day, and besides…I wouldn’t get any work done with all those fireworks going off and the smell of cookouts filling the air.
Happy Birthday America!
As always – thank you for reading.

Funny how things work out. Oh…love your blog blah blah blah. The truth of the matter is that I’m building my platform (you know what I mean), and I’ve set myself social media goals. One of them is to comment on blogs…four of them daily. You’re number three.
But, I happened to glance in your blog’s margin, and I saw “Blogs I follow.” I clicked on the first one and surprise, the guy is funny!
So, I’m grinding away, building followers and friends, and I actually find someone who is interesting and has funny friends!
Who’d of thought?
Nice of you to stop by…and yeah – that guy is funny – for a primate!
