News, and ... other news

I've been working hard on the latest Wolf book, which is tentatively called The Pack.

The premise is that Wolf and Lauren are days from marriage, the reception tent has been erected on the front meadow, friends and relatives are in town, Rachette is masterminding bachelor activities, and Wolf's world is generally steeped in anticipation. And then a car with blood smeared on the steering wheel shows up outside Wolf's house.

Inside he finds Kristen Luke lying in the shower--bloodied, injured, and emaciated. But when she wakes, she can't remember what happened to her, or why she is 1,200 miles from her new Seattle field office.

And so begins a heck of a lot of trouble for Wolf.

The Peter Blake Series Book:

A month or so back I closed the file on that one, threw the computer against the wall, gave it a flying elbow drop, dusted it off, opened up a new file, and have been working on "The Pack" ever since. I'll get back to it. Probably. I'm beginning to think it's not meant to be, but I'll probably give it another go, and then move on to something else if I have to.

Audio Books:

I now have 6 audio books fully produced and for sale. Sean has finished the 7th (To the Bone) and it will be available on Audible and Amazon shortly.

Introducing the David Wolf Mystery Series Box Set (Books 1-4)


The first 4 David Wolf books are now available in a bundle at a discount that equates to over 40% off the price of purchasing them alone. Please help share the word on this, and if you've read all the books, please consider leaving an honest review. Thanks for your help.

I'll keep you posted in the next month or so when I'm through with The Pack.

Dark Mountain (David Wolf Series Book 10) - Now on Amazon

Dark Mountain David Wolf Book 10
DARK MOUNTAIN, the tenth book in the David Wolf series, is now available on Amazon!

I'm very excited about this one for a number of reasons. The first, and most important reason, is that I love the story. The second is that five years ago, when I turned to my wife with this crazy idea to write ... and write FICTION ... I ended my vow to her with "And I'll write ten books. Then, and only then, will I step back and judge it as a failure or success." (To her credit, she did what she always does, and said, "Awesome!")

I think that in my mind, I took the required amount of writing I thought it would take to begin making a living at self-published writing (five books) and doubled it, just in case after five I wasn't doing so hot.

In hindsight, I think the goal shows how much I really wanted to be a writer. I also think it shows my lofty ambitions, and the pessimism (or is it realism?) that all the ambitions are soaked in.

"Hey, I've busted my ass and we're still broke. But it's only been eight books! Two more to go ... then I'll make a decision, honey."

I'm fortunate I never had to say that. I was able to out-earn my day job after five books, so I was able to quit it and I've written full time ever since. Every once in a while I'll get that cry-in-your-Frosted Flakes feeling when I think about how far my wife and I have come in this venture. But more often than not, I find myself looking toward the future.

And as for the future, I'm working on that new series I keep threatening to write. I'm rebranding the books with new covers. I'm producing each book in audio, and ramping up my marketing to a new level. I'm looking at also doing an offshoot series, perhaps starring Kristen Luke. (The Luke Files?) We'll see. One book at a time, from now on.

I hope you like Dark Mountain.
