I’ve been quiet for a while, mostly because lots of things have been in flux. Several weeks ago, I moved to a group of my company’s upstate New York papers, so between packing, moving and getting settled, life’s been crazier than normal. The bad news is I’m now a Red Sox fan in the heart of Yankees territory. The good news is I’m now only a couple hours from Massachusetts, so I can get back to my hometown more often. I also have a better work situation in terms of insanity levels, mostly because it’s a bigger newsroom. And you’re wondering why you care about that.
The benefit for you is that I have more time to write, and I’m much closer to my source of inspiration. There are two Exeter works-in-progress right now: the story of when Chris came to Exeter and the second Mob Chronicles book. You’ll see the Mob Chronicles book first for a few reasons, but I’m hoping to read from both of them at an appearance in Massachusetts in early September. Details TBA.
Other news: We Are Exeter is now free for everybody who signs up for the mailing list. I don’t send a lot of emails, but you’ll find out about appearances and new books first, plus possibly get some sneak peeks. If you had already signed up and don’t have a copy of We Are Exeter, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what email you signed up with and what ebook format you want.
