I ask myself this, in the wee hours of the morning, when dreams and reality become confused, and I dream of wending my way through a crowded backstage to my dressing room, only to find it is full of cosplayers, missionaries, fourth-grade classmates, coworkers, and that slightly deranged local homeless guy who goes around flashing peace signs at everyone like Richard Nixon running on the Legalize It! platform. Or the dreams where I’ve inherited a once-grand but now run-down old house, full of trunks and furniture and wardrobes containing fascinating things that are now my responsibility to unpack, clean, catalogue, and render into something beautiful and profitable. Assuming, of course, that I’m not possessed or murdered by the ghosts of the house’s previous occupants. There are always ghosts in my stories, you see, even those that take place in my unconscious mind, and they are always pawing at me with their clinging hands, demanding my attention. Such is the life of a writer with a day job, and a demanding one at that. I can say that Curious Weather is about 90% finished, and it’s very, very pleasing to me, but alas, the daily ghosts keep eating my brain and pulling me away from the work I would rather be doing. I’m pretty much limited to one day a week when I can write. The publisher is still hanging fire—they’re the ones who set the publication dates, based on the estimates I give them—basically 9-12 months from the time I expect to turn in the manuscript. They’ve been remarkably patient with me. My agent, too. They are, of course, giving me the necessary space to turn out the quality work I strive for. So yes, this will one day really be published. We have a contract, we have a cover, and I have a story. But I will turn in no manuscript before its time. (less)

Recommends it for: people who love weird westerns, urban fantasy fans, readers who crave complex characters
Edit 4/15/20... Well, the manuscript is away to the publisher. Now we wait. As some of you may know, the publishing industry is having serious supply/distribution problems in the wake of the pandemic, and given that I'm a baby author who's way past deadline there's no telling when, or indeed if, this book will see the light of day.

But! This story is dear to my heart and one way or another I'm going to make sure it gets published. Thanks for hanging in there, and be safe.
