If you don't have this book, you may want to run and get it on the 23rd. I will try to post a reminder, but I can't promise (life is crazy right now). https://amzn.com/B0055DJLD4

For those of you who prefer the ibookstore to other e-retailers, there's good news. My little cat poetry book, Meow Cat Poems, is now available through the ibookstore: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/meow-cat-poems/id1123067648?ls=1&mt=11

Supposedly, it is available in 51 countries and territories (!). I am taking Apple's word for that. Other books should follow soon.

It’s been a rough couple of months. Dealing with health issues and illness is no fun, especially when you aren’t the only one sick but you are also taking care of sick family members. It’s not over yet but I decided that I’m tired of using all this as an excuse and it’s time to get back to work. I have a new book of poetry coming out very soon and fiction in the early stages. Stay tuned.

In other news, the hummingbirds are back. I saw one having a snack at a comfrey flower the other day. And one of “my” hawks from the local nest has paid a couple of visits . The hawk circled me a few times, "talking" to me. I think summer has begun.

"Forests of the Night", book three of the Tiger Lily series, should be out by the end of the week! It's about time, seeing it was delayed about three months by a run of near disasters. Said near disasters included serious accidents and illnesses in the family, but there was also the more usual run of editing issues and cover delays. It was hard to continue working, but at last we're getting there! I am just about ready to stop holding my breath. Stay tuned!

New Year's Book Giveaway!

If you don't have "Tiger Lily" in kindle format yet, this is your chance to get it free! Or rather, it will be, on January 1.  So run over to Amazon on January 1 and grab a copy: http://tinyurl.com/zd5js4e

The third in the series is almost ready to come out. I've been slowed down by all sorts of detours so I probably shouldn't promise anything but it should happen soon. I will let you know. Happy New Year!

Back to Work

I’m behind schedule. I apologize for that.  “The Forests of the Night”, the next book in the “Tiger Lily” series should have been approaching publication. It’s not, and there are excuses, uh, I mean reasons for that. Health issues, work load (my “other” job), all sorts of stuff. I kept telling myself that as soon as some of this was resolved, I would get the rewrites done. I have now officially lost patience with myself. Whatever else is going on, I’m getting back to work, no more waiting. I will make the time and do the rewrites.  Stay tuned.

The Lower Manhattan Boat Lift

I had no idea tat there was a boat lift on 9/11/2001. I am amazed at how large it was but I am not surprised that Americans came together to help one another. Check out this video: http://biggeekdad.com/2011/09/boatlift/
