With Red Fox having been out for nearly two weeks now (at least in e-book format), I’m peppered with questions about Book Three in The Experiment in Terror Series. You know, “These books are like crack, when’s the next one coming out?”, “I need a fix, where is Book Three?”, “Give me your soul, I want it now” etc, etc.*
Book Three, entitled Dead Sky Morning (I love this title), will be published on October 13th of this year. Yes, that seems like a long ways away, but I do need time to write Book Four, too. Hopefully I’ll have a cover of Book Three up sometime during the summer and a description of the book as well. All I can say about it now is that it involves a haunted (no, really) island in British Columbia, nasty missionaries, hockey (what? no, really), strip clubs (…), the worst camping trip you’ve ever been on, and two characters who desperately need to be taken by the ear and told to go to their (separate) rooms. Also, this book should be Rated R.
In the meantime, I’m busy writing Book Four, Lying Season. I’m holed up on the family boat on Salt Spring Island, a place that has always tickled my imagination, and I’m writing. It’s fun to be back in the swing of things with Perry and Dex. I finished Dead Sky Morning in the beginning of March, so it’s been a while, and those two are welcoming me back with open arms. They’ll regret it though once I’m through with them, but I’ve always been a bit sadistic (just ask anyone who has gone on a night-hike with me. I will take the flashlight and leave you in the forest alone).
So I’ve decided I’ll keep you updated here with my writing, whenever the mood strikes me. I’ll never say too much (I’m still going to assume that many people reading this haven’t read Darkhouse yet), but I thought it would be a good way to keep you engaged. And off my back. I’m writing, damn it!
Anyhoo, I’m also going to install this ghetto progress bar on the side of the blog here:
I’m shooting for about 110,000 words (Dead Sky Morning is around 100K) but it’ll be done when it’s done, regardless of word count.
OH and by the way, Red Fox is now available at Amazon.com — it’s been getting some pretty fabulous reviews too. Who doesn’t love skinwalkers? Oh right, Perry and Dex.
