With the searing heat limiting my outdoor activities, I’m getting a lot more work done on my projects. It’s official, I’ll be joining Farpoint in February, just outside of Baltimore as one of their guests. You can find their website under my links section. I’ve already confirmed with PhilCon for November as a guest as well. In January, the Queen of Pain will be released from AZ Publishing. For those who aren’t familiar with the Pain series, Queen of Pain is the sequel to Princess Pain. This series is full of action, violence and gristly deaths as well as our emotional heroine, Marina.

I’ve recently teamed up with my good friend, Pete Prellwitz, in adapting his tales of Carlita, The Angel of St. Thomas into a TV pilot. We hope to have the pilot ready for market by the fall. I’m progressing with Space Truckers, my new sci-fi/action novel, adapted from a recent screenplay I wrote. I didn’t intend to do a new series but this story is so exciting that I couldn’t resist.

My signing at Cocco’s Gelateria was a lot of fun, as usual. The extreme heat did limit the number of visitors to the store but we still had a great time. It’s always a pleasure meeting new friends and fans. A special thanks to Teresa and Mike Cocco for having me back and to their courteous staff. I look forward to seeing them next year. Join me again soon for more news on my projects and appearances.

After much angst, the website is finally back up. My former web hoster demonstrated much incompetence in supporting their servers when issues arrive. Fortunately, with help from a new friend and GoDaddy, the site is finally back up. So, welcome back,everyone.
Several events have happened since last time.
-Princess Pain and the new Queen of Pain (Due out in January) will be carried by AZ Publishing. We are in the process of transferring the files from the former publisher.
-I’ve started a new novel, based on a new script, titled Space Truckers and have gotten about two chapters into it.
-I’m collaborating on a project with a good friend and fellow writer Pete Prellwitz, adapting his novel, The Angel of St. Thomas to a TV series. This is my first collaboration and it’s been fun so far. My short story.
-My short story, No Justice, was accepted by Fortress Publishing for their upcoming anthology, TV Gods – Summer Programming. This is the second of the humorous TV Gods series. A release date has not been announced yet.
-I’ve accepted an invitation to PhilCon for November 18-20. I’m hoping to have a table in their dealers room as well.
-On July 23rd, I’ll be appearing at Cocco’s Gelataria for my annual summer signing. This is always a great opportunity to meet my friends and fans in a relaxed environment with lots of good food and desserts.
More information will be forthcoming about coming appearances and projects. Join me soon for another update and news. Have a great summer, everyone.
