Distractions, Distractions!

Goodness gracious, I have had them and I sincerely apologize for the total lack of updates over the past few months. I hope that most of you who check in have been following my blog.

I can’t reveal everything that’s been going on just yet and should be able to in October. The essence is that I am involved in a non-fiction book project as a co-author with an individual who is well-known in the shipwreck exploration community. He has been around the world and either helped solve or clarify a number of maritime mysteries – some of which date back to the 1800s. We corresponded by email over the years as he kindly provided back cover endorsements of a couple of my books and some expert advice when I was writing Georgina’s Grief. After I finished the novel he asked if I would be interested in his project and when he explained what he wanted to do, I couldn’t say, “Yes”, quickly enough. As much as I enjoy writing novels, there are indeed times when, “Truth is stranger than fiction.” In this case, it is both the compelling story of a ship that isn’t as famous as it should be, and of the technology advances in scuba that have greatly extended our ability to dive to ever-deepr depths and stay for longer periods. I say, “we” only in the collective sense of loving scuba. This type of diving is well beyond anything that I do.

There has been a great deal of research required for the book and the schedule has been pretty ambitious. If all goes according to plan, we will have a January release and begin taking pre-publication orders in early November.

In the meantime, if you’ve missed out on any books, do get caught up and I’ll reveal the new title as soon as I am allowed to.
