Novel sneak peek coming this week

I’m going to be a bit of a tease today, but I’m hoping you won’t mind. Because chaos at my newspaper job kept pushing back the release date of the first Exeter novel, “All That Is Necessary,” I often get “When is it coming out?” questions.

The book is coming out in January, exact dates to come later this year. But as a thank you for those who have been patiently waiting, the first chapter will be available later this week for free download. Just enough to whet you appetite for the latest adventures of the Exeter crew. There’s a new character you haven’t yet met, plus a chance to catch up with several who appeared in Thrown Out. I’ll post the link this weekend, but if you aren’t sure you’ll remember to check back and want me to send the link directly to you, please leave a note in comments.

Rory’s Story Cubes Challenge: Week 12

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for this week’s Story Cubes Challenge. It’s also the birthday of the other bookworm cousin in my family — Happy Birthday, Katie — and the Fourth of July. Too bad there’s no fireworks cube. 🙂

Just a reminder: Please post a link to your challenge response in comments so we can all see how different people tackle the same prompt. Happy writing!
