Thanks, Lucie--for the congratulations and for the tip. You rock!

I'm glad to hear you love the sniper theme. As a police sniper, I yearned for fiction books featuring police snipers, but I couldn't find many. I wasn't sure if anyone else would be interested in the topic, but I decided to write what I'd like to read rather than what I thought might be popular.

Take care,

Wow, lots going on since I last visited, all good. Congrats Bflo, shea, and BJ.

Small bit of news from me. My mystery-suspense story “Murderous Lies” is free to read as a reprint at Section 8 Magazine, an art and literature zine.

How the heck did I get into an arts and lit pub? (After all, I sometimes forget which fork to use at fancy dinners.) Another mystery reprint of mine ran at multi-genre zine wordhaus a couple of weeks ago, and the Section 8 editor read it and contacted me, asking for a story. How about that?

I hope you get a chance to check it out, if only for the cool artwork and color contrasting typography Section 8 ran with the story.

Congratulations on the contract Ken. Hope they help the series kick serious butt. Kudos on the cover Bflo and Sheadakota. Get that promo machine cranking BJ. Sounds like Section 8 and Peter have a great relationship forming...you go!

Guess I'll break out the news that HOWLING MOUNTAIN BLUES is now available in paperback on Amazon and Barking Rain Press. It'll be available in e-book soon at a variety of online venues.
