Moving on, but still here

Two years since I last posted. I've told myself that blogs are dead, that no one reads them. We'll see.

Two years later, I have completed the Black Hat thriller series, with the publication of Vanished in February. It's time again to move on and try new things.

I'm working on a standalone. Or maybe it's a trilogy. It could be either. But it's not a conventional series. It's something I've wanted to write for a long time, something I actually started back before I began writing the tattoo shop mysteries. It will be very different than my other three series, as it's written with several points of view in third person, rather than my usual first person POV. It's been a challenge.

It's also been a challenge because I'm distracted by daily life as well as what's going on in our country right now. I have just deactivated my Facebook account. Probably only temporarily, while I work on the revisions to my book. I've found that Facebook too easily distracts me. I am tempted by all the shiny objects, all the news that bombards us every day, all day. I need a break from it, as it's exhausting.

Hopefully I will have something to show for my break from social media within a few months, something that I hope knocks the socks off some editor somewhere. At least that's what I'm aiming for. Wish me luck, and perhaps I'll be back before 2020. But I can't promise anything...
