The last time I posted here, my intention was to finish a novel in about two months. Not! Life, trips, a little illness and a whole lot of procrastination led me down a dark, stormy and wayward path. But I am back on track now.

Perhaps the lesson here for all writers is not to beat up yourselves for failing to meet a goal, but to get back on that horse, bike, chair and type away. I'm doing that now, though paying a bit of penance, by stopping to write this blog.

In the meantime, I have been working on pre-promotion for this mystery-in-progress, MURDER VISITS ANTIGUA. I've also done a bit of pre-promotion and a warmer-upper by writing a short speculative fiction piece about Antigua. It has been accepted by Amazon! "Antiguan Memories" is set in the 1930's and the story involves a disillusioned Anglican priest, a mute Antiguan boy and the spirit of a murdered slave girl. Amazon is publishing short stories now under the label of "Amazon Shorts." The stories can be downloaded as a PDF file or kept in a virtual library at Amazon. The cost of each story is only 49 cents! Such a deal!

To see a bit about the story go to:

That's it for now,

Yours in mystery,
