I'm almost done with Blood Moon now. It's always exciting to come to the end of a book. I've been working on it now for almost a year and it's been a great ride--except when I dumped about 20,000 words--that's always hard to do. I didn't save much of those pages either. Maybe they'll appear in a later book.
While I am finishing one book, I'm always thinking about the next one. What will the story line be? Believe it or not, that's an exciting process. It's intriguing to think of new characters who will emerge in the book, of the new relationships that will develop between them. I'm reminded once again of the fictional characters that lined the driveway of Karin Fossum's home. Karin is one of Norway's most revered crime writers. She devotes one of her recent books to a dream she has (perhaps it's a nightmare) wherein fictional people line her driveway at night, waiting patiently for her to select one of them for her next book. A crazy thought, isn't it!

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,"
