My latest novel, The Quest, continues to sell well, thanks to all of you. The unabridged audio CD is now available for those, like me, who prefer to be read to. I find that I can multi-task while I’m listening to an audiobook. I sometimes watch TV or read another book. Try it.
To remind everyone, you can read the first two chapters of The Quest by clicking here. On page 13 there is the beginning of a nude bathing scene in a spa pool. Enjoy.
My publicity tour for The Quest is over, and I had fun meeting my readers at talks and book signings. I signed a few thousand copies of The Quest, and hundreds of copies of my older books that people brought to the signings. I even signed other authors’ books. Why not?
The final details of the Plum Island cable TV deal are being worked out, and as soon as I have more information about the multi-part series I will announce it here.
I’m now working on my next book which will feature John Corey, former NYPD detective now working in the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force. John has transferred out of the Mideast terrorism unit and is now tracking Russian spies in America. The Russians, as John observes, are a more formidable enemy and they are far more technologically advanced than Mideast terrorists. John’s wife, FBI Special Agent, Kate Mayfield, remains in the Mideast section so they don’t see much of each other, making for a happier marriage. Just kidding.
As I do on every Veterans Day, I got together for drinks and dinner with a bunch of guys who all served in Vietnam. We don’t tell war stories — most veterans don’t — but we do toast those who did not make it home. Then we celebrate life. It was a good dinner.
Thanksgiving is upon us, and this is a good time to pause and reflect on all the things that we have to be thankful for, including the men and women in our armed forces, national security services, local police forces, and first responders who protect us every day, including holidays.
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
