Book updates

It’s been a busy week. We are finishing making the corrections on the second proof of the Dr. Selfish softcover. Once the third proof comes back to us, hopefully we will be ready to go and finally have a paperback version.

With Malicious Intent, is in it’s final stage of formatting in ebook version and will be done possibly as soon as today.

The third novel in the Arnie Darrow series, Double Down, is coming right along. The entire book takes place in the state of Nevada, so it’s been fun to write about. I’ve learned quite a bit about our state while doing my research, for example, did you know that Nevada means snow-clad?

Kate has been offered a book deal to write about her harrowing experience with her ex-husband. She’s been offered big money. I say why not?

The only thing that truly matters on the journey of life is the company of those we chose to share it with.
