Oh lately it's so quiet (excerpts from upcoming novella)

I've been pretty quiet on my blog as of late. But I've been hard at work in my writing. Last year I wrote a novella, Jessica Wright's Double Vision, and I'm currently working on two for this year. And guess what? They're all part of the same series.

I made a commitment this year to write 2 novellas in a Mercedes Masterson, Private Eye series. The Double Vision novella will likely end up being book 2 or book 3 of the series. I'm currently waist deep in the first novella, which is due June 1.

Unfortunately, I've fallen behind, after being ahead of schedule up until February where I hit a brick wall (despite having most of it outlined in front of me). I only recently got my groove back, this week actually. Gonna fight hard to beat June 1 or come close. I am roughly 10k words from the end, so close. Super close.

If you like old hardboil, crime, noir, detective, private eye style stuff--you'll probably like Mercedes and this series of novellas I'm working on. It's got strong female characters, which I love to write. I hope everyone will be as excited about these stories as I am, especially since Mercedes is my favorite character I've ever written and I've been writing her off and on since 2005. I'll write again soon with a description and title of the first book.

Here are some snapshots/excerpts of what's to come, hope you enjoy:
