Oh man, truly a best of times, worst of times situation! On the other hand, that beta reader gig sounds pretty sweet, lol. Good luck and keep at it!


Thanks, Matthew! I think the beta reader gig is actually a good news/bad news situation, too.

The good news: You get to read the book before everyone else.

The bad news: It still needs work, and if you want to see the final, perfect (or close to it) version of the story you have to read the dang thing all over again.

1. YES!!!!! WOOHOOOOO!!! I cannot wait to read it!!

2. I HAVE to see The Meg in IMAX, cuz WHOA!


It will all work out, as my mother says. In all honesty, as much as I want to read it, I wasn't expecting the book until after the first of the year.

Patience is a virtue...

Avis Crane

I'm willing to wait, as long as we do get it! I love those Amlingmeyers!


Thanks for the sustained enthusiasm, guys! "Patience is a virtue" definitely applies to anyone who's been hoping for a new book from me the last couple years....

Greg Daniel

Is this that "fake news" I've been hearing so much about. And if fake news is no news, does that make it all good news?!?


This is both real news and good news, Greg! Then again, maybe that's just what the Russians want you to think. Who can tell anymore? I'm not even sure it's me typing this. I might be a 'bot. Do 'bots get sleepy and need coffee and a cookie around this time of day? If not, then I guess I'm human after all. More good news!

Hearth M. Rising

I really liked the reader for the past Holmes on the Range books. I hope he will be coming back.


We'll see, Hearth. To be honest, I'm not sure how it's going to go with the new book re: audio. I'd love to be able to hand it off to Tantor, who did the first five novels with William Dufris. But I'll be surprised if that happens. (The first five books were published by St. Martin's Minotaur. This book will be published by little ol' me.) More likely I'll have to figure out an independent way to go for audio. That worked out fine with the short story collection "Dear Mr. Holmes," so I'm sure I can make it happen one way or another. Stay tuned....
