Sequels for Breakfast: Writing the Follow-Up to Crossroads

Demos City seriesThanks for tuning in — it’s update time. For those of you out of the loop, Crossroads: a Demos City Novel remains on track for its November 4th. Could not be more excited about everyone getting their hands on it and reading what I’ve been able to do with the narrative. I’ve also been updating and revising the follow-up to that novel, which some of you may have encountered in its rougher stages. Damn shame that text I know — edits elude me. That story is evolving to fit the changes made to the first book, and if I do say so myself, it’s shaping up to be a suspenseful trip down the rabbit hole. Ten more chapters to go, and it’s finished enough to send off for a review by my publisher, the good people at J Taylor. I’m immensely grateful to them for their continuing support, and the passion they’ve shown for these characters. Leon and Hastings wouldn’t get far without them.

I know some of you have been looking for the sequel, and I promise it’s coming. The more support we have for this first novel, the better the chance we can take its sequel to a wider audience. This is what I love doing, and somewhat ironically, words do very little to express how thankful I am that each one of you take the time to immerse yourselves in Demos City. As its name suggest — it’s for the people. For you.

Free Stuff Update: I promised you free stuff and it’s on the way. Closer to the release date, my team (mostly Josh. Sorry Josh) will roll out how everyone whose paying attention to the Facebook can get in on the drawings for an unreasonably sized poster of the cover, some of other yet-to-be revealed goodies, and a one-of-a-kind copy of Crossroads in it’s pre-copy edited form. This copy contains deleted scenes, my own handwritten notes and enough to give your third grade English teacher a slow death.
