I’m beyond excited to announce that the sequel to THE HANGED MAN’S NOOSE has been picked up by Barking Rain Press for publication in March 2018. If you’re wondering what that has to do with golf, here’s the first hint: the title is A HOLE IN ONE, and yes, the murder takes place on a golf course…more details closer to publication.
Those of you who know me personally (or have friended me on Facebook) know that I’m a passionate (if not particularly good) golfer. I wish I could say I was allowed to write off some of my golf games in the name of research, but alas, such was not the case. That said, I’ve played plenty of nasty par 3s that served as a template for the crime scene.
What happens now that the contract has been signed? That depends on the individual publisher. With Barking Rain, it means that I’ve had to break down the manuscript into 52 separate .rtf documents (one per chapter). The co-editors have been assigned (thank you Ti Locke and Anita Lock for taking this on) and our deadlines have been set for each stage of the editing process as we prepare for ARCs (Advance Reader Copies) by October 31st.
Stay tuned. The journey has just begun. FORE!
If you haven’t read THE HANGED MAN’S NOOSE, you can find it at all the usual suspects in trade paperback, Kindle, Kobo, and Nook. Read some of the reviews here.
