Happy 4th of July

I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a safe, happy and blessed 4th of July. As we enjoy our time with family and friends this day, let us never forget the sacrifices that have been made on our behalf.

To the airmen (and women), marines, sailors and soldiers, on behalf of a grateful nation: 
Thank you & God bless !

Plugging Along - July 2014 Update

I hope everyone's summer is off to a great start.

Things here have been going rather well. I am about 2/3 finished with the 3rd book in the James Maguire series. It will be another roller coaster ride. I always know when I am in a good writing place when I finish a chapter and think to myself: wow.......

However, writing can be a difficult thing. Sometimes the words just seem to flow easily; other times, not so much. There have been a few days where I have just had to close the laptop and walk away. You can't force the moment. The worst thing you can do is find yourself in a position where you are just writing for the sake of writing. Then you get caught in the old 'garbage in, garbage out' scenario.

This new book finds Maguire dealing with even more twists and turns. In addition to having to deal with recent events, we find that the world is still not a very happy and secure place. The threat of terrorism is still ever present and now he must contend with a hate crime that threatens to rip apart the very heart of the city. But things are never as they seem.

Who do you trust in a game that everyone is trying to win?

Happy Summer Reading !!
