Writing with a partner is an experience. Barbara M. Hodges and I enjoyed it so much we have started the sequel to "ICE" even though we have not found a home for it yet. Our sequel "Meltdown" is going well and we are very sure it will be as good a read as "ICE"

Don't forget "The Last Dawn of Reckoning" my novel with Jake McCauly is available on Amazon.

writing vs. selling

Writing the novel is the easy part. Selling it to a publisher or agent is the hard part. To sell or market your novel you have to take off the jeans and sweat shirt and don the used car salesman garb. Not easy, because not only the cloths change but the mental attitude changes.

Writing is a lonely thing. Selling is the opposite. Some of us are better at this than others.

Morgan Garret is a former CIA agent and was involved along with Darcie Carmichael in the "Ice" caper.

Me: "Good Morning Morgan."
Morgan: "Yea, good morning."
Me: "How are you doing? I understand you had a pretty rough time."
Morgan: "Not so bad. Darcie and I are moving on. We are now involved with 'Meltdown' which is going to be a real challenge."
Me: "Can you tell us more?"
Morgan: "Well actually no, not 'till you and your writing partner write it down."

Morgan is a tough nut to crack but he is right. Barbara M. Hodges and I are well on our way with our sequel to "Ice", "Meltdown."

You will want to read both when we get the published.
