Somehow I’ve managed to get behind on the next novel. It’s not like this is my first book, but it’s still hard to hit the 1,000 words per day quota when you’re working a full time job, participating in a martial arts club, raising kids, maintaining a blog (and whining about how you’re behind schedule), etc.
Time to buckle down.
This is going to be a bigger book than the last one, and not just in terms of total words. It’s got more characters, more layers of perspective, and more complexity.
The 14th Mansion is story of three unlikely characters — a homeless man, a biker, and a witch — trying find a lost college student who may have fallen prey to a serial killer. It has strange plot turns, twisted villains, occult themes, sex, profanity, and at every moment the threat of violence and doom. It’s a dark book punctuated with points of light in the form of humor and the possibility of redemption.
And if I can get back on schedule, it will be released in July.
