Ditto what wonder said. MTS. is going gangbusters!

So here is my news. I signed a publishing contract with The History Press for my book on Indian land title in NY State. Their niche is regional history and they do get physical in store placement at B&N, Books a Million, and indie stores. So there you have it!

I think I congratulated you in another thread, HS, but it's definitely worth saying again:

CONGRATULATIONS!

Yes it does Wonderactivest, and gift shops. I remember seeing their books when I went to visit the Alamo.

Can't resist. It's good to remember the Alamo.

My publisher just accepted the third book in the Kevin Markinson Series! Frostbite, set in Concord, NH, is both a prequel and a sequel, it falls between Stress Fractures and Lead Poisoning.

Here's the pitch that sold it: A bumbling gang of mobsters from Rhode Island get more than they bargained for when they kidnap an aging assassin. Kevin Markinson has no interest in killing anyone for anybody, but he decides to go along with them for the time being, while he figures out a way to work this out to his advantage.

Should be out next summer.

Congratulations, jeseymour, History, and Ken. Lots of good stuff here.

In other new Braggatoria, my latest crime chiller “One Fingertip” is free to read at flash ezine Thrills, Kills ‘n’ Chaos.

Storyline: Anybody ever tell you to beware of strangers? Maybe you should have listened. Rated R for language and (off-page) violence.

Best wishes,
Peter DiChellis
