For the past three years, I've brought out a Milligan Creek Series novel in the fall. This year is no different, though I must admit that, until this week, I was a bit further behind in my writing than I was on previous books. However, now that I actually have a bit of free time in my schedule, I'm using it to knock out a few chapters. I'm well into chapter three right now, and my goal is to have at least five chapters complete before I head out on tour again in mid-March, which will put me back on track. It feels great to be back in the saddle again, especially considering I wrote my initial outline for the book back in October. In keeping with its title, this story is going to be epic, and I can't wait to share it with you. Meanwhile, I'm also hard at work plotting book five, which is going to take place in winter and send things in an entirely different direction. More news on that book in the months to come.
I'm not sure why it took me so long to do this (the books have been available on Kindle for a while), but books 1-3 in the Milligan Creek Series are now available as ebooks in the Kobo store. And the price is right! Check it out here.
I just returned from a two-week book tour of Saskatchewan, so I'm finally getting back up to speed. Lots of things on the go, including finishing up a new feature-length documentary, preparing another one, and writing book four of the Milligan Creek Series, The Great Grain Elevator Incident. However, in between all the work and travel, the pages of issue 3 of Meth: The Immortal are trickling out. Hoping to release it by March, which is later than planned, but at least it's on its way. Incidentally, I was also delayed by a couple of story and character breakthroughs that caused me to pause and do a lot of reimagining of my overall story and world, which continues to evolve in new and exciting ways in my mind. At any rate, here's a quick thumbnail progress shot from p. 15 of the new issue just to prove it's actually happening!
