Happy Belated New Year
Yes, I know it's late... I got caught up in the holiday madness, too. I'm back at work now. Book 4 of the Smoky Barrett Series - currently titled 'Abandoned' is with my editor, and due to be published in the UK around July and in the US in October. Now I'm eyeing book 5.
On the way back from Colorado, where I spent Christmas, I picked up The Road by Cormac McCarthy. I started reading it while we were waiting for our plane, and finished it before we landed. I was completely blown away. It's a bleak story, but it is also evocative, beautiful, involving and some of the best writing I've ever come across.
I left the book on the plane, in hopes that someone else would find it and read it. I'm generally a hoarder when it comes to books(and I'll certainly re-buy myself a hardcover copy) but in this case I felt good about gifting such a fine work of literature to a stranger.
I'm looking forward to what this year will bring. These are hard times, but the cliche' is true, cliche' or no - so long as you have good health and family, you're never poor.
