Tempest, Tide & Teasers.
I’m almost done with the first draft of the next Mac Travis adventure: Wood’s Tempest. It’s been too long since I hung out with Mac and company and I’m really enjoying it. That release should be coming in November. Mac makes an appearance in Backwater Tide and Kurt reciprocates in Wood’s Tempest. The stories are also linked together with Wood’s Tempest taking off where Backwater Tide ends. The back story also comes from the forthcoming Tides of Fortune book that I’m also working on. Writing in three worlds to get this story to work has been harder than I thought, but I think you’ll like the result.
I met John Cunningham, author of the Buck Reilly series with Wayne Stinnett at Smokin’ Tuna in Key West. We only thought it right that since we met, our characters should as well, so I’m working Buck into the new Mac Travis.
Many of you have asked whether I write when I’m in the Keys. The answer is no. I go fishing and diving, soak it all in, make notes, and bring it home with me. This trip the wind was up for most of it, but we got to enjoy some good times in Key West with my daughter (she’s 21 now so it’s all legal). Here’s a sample from my last trip. Stay tuned to see how I work these random ideas into the stories.
I want to thank you guys for all the emails with ideas and comments. Thinking about this, I thought it might be pretty cool to put together a Facebook Group for us. From book titles to character quirks to technical assistance (weapons, medical, legal, boats, etc.) I could use your help.
