Everything is on hold, waiting for my last proofreader to do the final read-through of my new John Lee Quarrels book, Ka-Bar Karma. The book is formatted except for any last-minute changes, the cover is ready to go, the teaser chapter of the next book in the series is written and attached to the end of this one, and my author’s newsletter is completed and just waiting for the book to be live so I can include the links to it. So it’s a waiting game at this point, and I’m eager to get it out.
Meanwhile, I’m trying to decide on my next book. In the normal progression I have been writing on, it should be the fourth book in the Tinder Street series. However we had planned to take a trip up to northern Ohio to do some more research for this book in the series, and Covid has kept us from doing that. I’ve been doing as much research as I can online for it but running into some roadblocks. So I may jump forward and do the next Big Lake book first and then the Tinder Street, once I can get enough of the information I need. You would think most everything you are looking for can be found online these days, but sometimes you have to go to historical museums and places like that to find what you need if you want your book to be accurate. I’ll give it a couple more days before I make a decision on which way to go on that.
I mentioned that Terry and I have been binge-watching Jamestown, and we are about midway through the third and final season. I’m going to be sorry to see this one end because it has really captured us, being the history buffs that we are.
And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us. We see this truck parked on US Highway 1 here in Edgewater, Florida all the time. Is this what happens when Fed Ex and UPS merge?

Thought For The Day – I don’t like making plans for the day ahead of time, because then the word premeditated gets thrown around in the courtroom.
