The Russian mafia + a midwestern orchard + a sadistic organization bent on world domination = my next book,the sequel to Tiger Eye. It’s due April 1st. It’s gonna be a fun ride.
By the way, Susan Grant’s finale to the 2176 Series—titled The Scarlet Empress—features an excerpt of Tiger Eye! My first chapter, which you can actually find at my website. Susan’s book is great—I highly recommend it.
It’s fun seeing my stuff in print. Gives me a good feeling, and a lot of motivation to keep working hard so I don’t let this dream of mine go to waste. Writing is hard work—some of the hardest I’ve ever done (though I think working at McDonalds or being the cashier at a grocery store is a lot tougher, because the pay is bad, the work can be surprisingly complex, and it gets no respect). Though to be honest, I have no right calling anything this much fun, work.
