Keeping Busy

I lost a little momentum around the holidays, but that was to be expected. However, I'm still on track and excited about the upcoming books and new projects.

"Clara of Crooked Creek" will be out next month. It's the fourth short story installment in the Crooked Creek series set in post-Civil War Montana. This one takes place in the spring of 1866, just over a year after the war ended. In it, we meet Clara Stowe, a brave and adventurous young woman who suffered great loss and yet had a reason to move forward. Clara is also one of the protagonists in the first Crooked Creek novel (title to be revealed at a later date).

While each of these short stories can be read out of order without losing any of the story, there's something fun about seeing friends from the other stories appear in the new. "Emma of Crooked Creek," the first short story (and the shortest) is always free, which makes it a great place to start. Check out all of the Crooked Creek short stories.

Journey to Hawk's Peak, the next (fifth) Gallagher book, is well underway, and I'm on track to meet my deadline. I'll be sharing that cover sometime next month!

Let's see, what else for 2016? I don't want to reveal too much because life happens and sometimes deadlines and release dates change. I'm also writing under another pen name soon, so I have to share my time. :) However, I'm working on another Gallagher book (the sixth), a British Agent novella, and a new Christmas book. I can't reveal more than that at this point.
