I finished another draft of Blood Moon Rising--It will be coming your way soon, Tris (agent). I'm looking forward to a submission to the publisher this fall.
I changed the title from Blood Moon to Blood Moon Rising. Sounds better and catches the spirit of the book more.
I am finally done and am just making some last minute grammatical corrections--the exciting stuff.
My thanks to all of you who have waited so patiently for my books to come out in publication. It's a slow process. I have long ago decided not to self-publish but to go the traditional way of publishing: working through an agent. Tris has been working hard to shop my books and has had some success in getting the first one read. Thanks, Tris! Here's hoping Blood Moon Rising will do well.
And a big thanks to my wife and muse, Karyn. She has been a patient reader and insightful critic through the writing process. Without her I would be lost.
Stay tuned for more. I plan on getting back to book three: A Cold Winter's Moon. Cooper has come to terms with his failure to find his kidnapped son, Maxie. But it's a new day for him. The search is on again and he has help from several of his old friends, Richie, Huck, and Boyd.

Blood Moon Rising, Cooper's second in his trilogy, will be out at the end of March, maybe sooner! It's even better than the first ~ Cooper gets closer and closer to solving the mystery of his son's disappearance.
One review from Jack Driscoll, award winning author of Lucky Man, Lucky Woman
"The novel is so richly cinematic that I read it while simultaneously imagining each of the chapters and scenes playing out on the silver screen... the suspense high-tension from beginning to end."
"Lovers of the genre will find much to keep them engrossed. The author successfully raises tension with gripping descriptions and emotional dialogue,"
