2013 flameout

Well, I almost made all my publishing goals for 2013. I had set the ambitious task of getting three novels published in one year. Quite a load.

And I came very, very close. The Neah Virus, my new medical thriller, appeared in the summer, as did the new paperback version of the first book of the Dinosaur Wars trilogy, Earthfall.

But the home stretch has been muddy this year. As I tried to finish the paperback version of Dinosaur Wars 2, Counterattack, I bogged down in heavy revisions, as I’ve mentioned several times recently.

Add to that the hospitalization of my mother and all the doctor visits that entailed, my own bout with a heavy holiday-season virus attack (fortunately not The Neah Virus!), the holidays themselves, and oh yeah, a magnificent vacation in Mexico, and, well, can you blame me for not quite getting all my work done?

Anyway, DW2 is in the final throes. I’m entering the redline changes into what will be the final draft, already working on the fifth of five sections. But New Years Eve is just too darn close.

Oh well. The upside is that I’ll have a book ready for release in early January 2014. That bodes well for the new year!
