The month of January flew by … I’ve been working full time with my wonderful new publisher Taylor & Seale, reviewing galleys, working on covers, promo schedule, etc., etc. This has been a very pleasurable experience. My new thriller/suspense novel, The Bait Man, will be released this month. The next post I write will be devoted to this book. I try to put learning value in all my books and this is no exception … it includes info from archaeological facts to East European political history.
