Many of you have asked, What’s next? When’s your next book coming out?
Lots of things happening, not just with Dare I Call It Murder? but with other books that are now an integral part of my life as I seem to be veering from author to publisher, wearing my Wigeon Publishing hat more often than not. (But I am not abandoning writing (or fiddling)—just being sidetracked for a while.)
Next year, I am bringing out a first-hand account from the American Civil War, told through letters and diary entries, as well as a dramatization of the diary of my “cousin” Philip Edwards, who served as the clerk for the first recorded cattle drive in North America. No, not from Texas, but from California to the Willamette Valley in Oregon Territory in 1837.
And I continue to work on Ramsey’s Run, a historical novel of the American frontier set during the fur trade era of the 1820s, in which a 17-year-old joins a fur trapping expedition to the Rocky Mountains after being falsely accused of a murder in east Tennessee.
Murder Survivor’s Handbook
It’s official. Murder Survivor’s Handbook: Real-Life Stories, Tips & Resources is launched and available for purchase at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble online, and through traditional retail outlets.

In prerelease sales, the book became a Hot New Release at Amazon.com in the Criminal Procedure Law category, and climbed onto Amazon’s Best Seller list in that category as well.
