here comes the holidays

I love the holiday season. Usually it means extra time at home and hopefully extra time with my wife. This year here schedule is a little screwy but we get Xmas eve alone. Very cool.

We're planning on having some friends over which is always nice.

We did finally get the BIG ASS TV we have been planing for. A 48" LCD and it rocks. I plan to spend a lot of time in the next month in front of it staring till I go blind. I now plan to re watch a lot of things, Lord of the… Continue

Saw your note about the best Lee Child ever. Were you referencing Bad Luck and Trouble or someting newer?

I'll definitely keep you posted on the release of FREEFALL, but it's still a year away. I can't believe how long the lead time is in the publishing industry, but at least it gives me time to crank out the next one.

Glad you liked SHATTER. You obviously have a very dark soul.
I've finished a short novel called BOMBPROOF, which is very violent, fast and hip...and very different, but I don't know when the US publication will be.

Apart from that I'm hoping to deliver a new Joe O'Loughlin story - a follow up to SHATTER - in August, for publication in 2010.
Sorry for the wait, but I takes a me long time to write these suckers.

I have it on my pile, behind a Tess Gerritsen I'm currently reading. I'm so tempted to switch. LOL.

Operating a bookstores for 23+ years doesn'y make you rich either, but we love it.

Currently both reading and writing have suffered as I have been creating a POS system for our stores. There isn't a competent system on the market, so do it yourself if you want it done well.

Good luck in the future.

Congratulations on the great article in the Trib! Crimespree looks really cool. And caffeine isn't optional for me, either.

Jon, that's very kind of you. I've just delivered the new book, so only another year to wait (!). But I am going to try to write the next one within a year...
