I’m pleased and proud to say that the second novel of my career, Bone Wires, launches today. Distribution always takes a bit, but it’s available now in electronic format for the Kindle, and soon for the Nook and other electronic formats – and it looks like it’s already getting great reviews! 5 stars on BN.com, 5 stars on Amazon, (admittedly with one review each) but also a solid 4.57 on Goodreads. I can’t tell you how great that makes me feel.
Writing this book was definitely a challenge for me. My first novel, Shadow of a Dead Star, was a formal piece that I had time to sit down and grind over for ages and ages. Bone Wires, however, started as a serial – week by week, two to four thousand words a dose, squeezed in around life in general (and some pretty serious dayjob stress at times!) It’s much harder than you’d think, and I really worried that the book would suffer from it. Maybe it did, I’ll never know – but the result in the end was something that I could be pleased and proud of.
For those of you who read the serial over the last eight months, I thank you. Your support really pushed me along. I want to thank in particular my friend, Michael Fundaro, who faithfully followed every week and always had comments to make as a devoted reader; my editor, Vicki Kiere, who was with me in the trenches every week and afterward; my publishers for giving me the ability to tell my story; and finally my wife Christina, whose patience has been incredible since I started all this madness a year ago. I don’t always show appreciation for the time she gives me, but I’ll tell you people that I wouldn’t be here right now if not for her. Not one word would see the light of day.
So anyway, that’s really all I have to say about it. I hope you’ll have a look at it, buy it, read it, and love it – and if not love it, tell me why so that I can apply those lessons toward my next work. And for fans of Shadow of a Dead Star, rejoice! Redeye isn’t very far around the corner.
I love you guys. Thank you for making this all possible.
With Humility and Thanks,
