Okay. Another head scratch for you, kitty. Guess I’m not getting any more work done today.

Friday. Vegas. Conference rooms. Editors. Only one week. How bad can it really be?
I can’t decide which is worse: getting sick or the winter storm that just hit us.
I’m three chapters into a novel. Each chapter is about 2,200 words, plus or minus. (A little more on the plus side.)
Going forward, I think this will be fair to a reader’s expectations. You, the reader, are who really matters.
Don’t try to plug this book into a genre. If you must, consider this speculative fiction. But with a mystery to solve, elements of a thriller and an overshadowing sci-fi tale, it’s probably best to label Pines by Blake Crouch a good story.
Can waiting to die drive a narrative? While the larger stakes of Karen Thompson Walker’s story The Age of Miracles are high, it’s the small things that really matter.
A post-apocolyptic tale with a bizarre and twisted plot, “I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream” will keep you tensely riveted to the edge of your chair. And as an interesting side-note, Harlan Ellison voice acts in this radio drama. Can you guess which character?
This story starts off fast and only continues to build tension and, finally, horror. The book is really two stories, a backstory remembered and current events. But everything comes together for the main character, Malorie, at the end for a satisfying conclusion.
Three new short stories: A horror, a supernatural, and a sci-fi. The book will be available in print, ebook, and audio format. I expect the print publication to be available sometime in November.
