A quick "Snowbound" update
It's been WAY too long since I've posted something about the fifth book in the Milligan Creek Series, Snowbound. I'm happy to say that despite some pandemic-related delays, things are going strong, and I'm about halfway through the first draft with a good head of steam behind me. I had been hoping to complete the first draft by the end of June, but it looks more likely that I'll be able to wrap things up by mid-July. Every time I make a prediction like that, something seems to get in the way, but despite a mountain of other work, I'm still carving out time to work on it each day. I'm taking a page out of Stephen King's book and writing on is seven days a week.
The good news is, all sorts of new and unexpected developments are happening with the story, many of which are making me laugh, which is a great sign. If I'm surprised by what's happening, there's a good chance readers will be as well. I'm very encouraged by the strong sales of the first four books on Amazon over the past six months, so I can't wait to get this new book into readers' hands.
In addition, I'm already doing some brainstorming on books six and seven. For the moment, I'll say that one of those books revolves around Milligan Creek's movie theater, and the other one involves a mystery that's centred around some old, abandoned farmhouses around the community.
That's it for now. Back to Snowbound . . .

Loving Milligan Creek Series but not as much as my wife is. LOL She got into my stash and got ahead of me so I have been trying to get Snowbound on the sly. So please let me know asap if you can. All my life I have read 2 or 3 books a year. So far this year I have read more like 3 to 5 books a week. My grandmother taught my to read between 6th and 7th grades. I would have been a total failure had she not done that for me. I hated it at the time but this 64 year old is so greatful now as he struggles to read to his grandchildren and uses spellcheck to write this to you. God bless you!!!
