Christmas is rapidly approaching.
With all of the bad things that have been happening around the nation and the world, I pray that this season brings peace to all.
In my household, this Christmas Day Sunday will see us hosting my dad, our children, and our grandchildren. We’ll have a good meal, we’ll all open gifts, and we’ll all enjoy being together. We will miss those that are no longer with us. Perhaps we’ll feel a bit melancholy. Perhaps we’ll even that out with a good batch of happiness that comes from all of us being together.
And, as we say goodbye to 2016, we look forward to 2017 with hope, and an eagerness for things to come.
During 2017, I plan to publish many of the stories that I’ve been working on for the last year and a half.
These are the stories that are for sure coming to you in 2017:
The Devil’s In The Details – A Tale Of Sardis County is a short story that takes place in Sardis County. A literary agent agrees to examine and sign off on a contract…but the details are killers!
Eli’s Coming – A Short Story deals with a young couple, and a mysterious killer that steals the life force from the hearts of his victims.
Heart Of Glass – A Short Story is the second story featuring another adventure with Colonel Quentin James Abernathy. This adventure takes place during World War II, and Colonel Abernathy is stationed in North Africa. He meets the love of his life, and finds out what really happened to the Library of Alexandria.
Escape – A Codename: Chandler/Justice Security Novel features a team-up between Justice Security and characters from the Codename: Chandler series.
Hell’s Bells – A Justice Security/Nicholas Turner Novel brings back Nicholas Turner and his daughter, Madeline. When a group kidnaps a school bus full of children, they demand Joey Justice in exchange, so that they can collect the bounty on his head. If Joey doesn’t give himself up, the children will die. It takes Nicholas Turner, an expert in children’s cases, to help solve this one, along with some special assistance from Madeline…and her special powers.
I’m Your Boogie Man – A Tale Of Sardis County brings newcomers to Sardis County, just as Sheriff Billy Napier and Deputy Alan Blake are trying to stop a killer that’s been called the Sardis Slasher.
So, those are the definite releases for 2017. It’s been a long wait for you, faithful fans, but I hope that you think it was worth it. I’ve had a blast getting these stories ready…I hope that you have as much fun reading them!
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Kwanzaa, or Happy Holidays…I hope your holiday time is special this year.
And, as always, I hope that you…
