Some Writing Updates

The other day I got a phone message from the manager of our local Walden’s bookstore saying she’d noticed Scream was selling very well and wanted to know if I’d be interested in setting up a book signing.

Never had that happen before. A store manager calling me wanting to arrange for a signing. Must be a good thing, though.

Anyway, I went in and talked to her and we scheduled one for June 20, the day before Father’s Day, hoping to attract the last-minute holiday shoppers.

People keep asking me what I’m working on now. The truth is, on paper, nothing much. I’m waiting to hear back from my publisher about a further contract and don’t want to start headlong on anything until I hear. If it’s a go with them, I have a book idea mostly worked out in my head I’ll jump right in to. If it’s a no go, I have a proposal I need to pull together for another book.

So right now I’m in limbo . . . just waiting. And praying. And waiting.

And praying. And that’s the business.

  1. I wish that was the norm – to have them call us for a signing!

    I’m so glad to hear your book is selling well. We’ll pray for that next book contract. :)Blessings,Susan


  3. Praise God. What a fantastic thing, Mike. Waiting and praying….two things an author knows much about, huh? šŸ™‚


  4. Does it have giant snakes and giant crocs in it per chance? šŸ˜‰


  5. That’s awesome news! I’m in limbo as well having heard from my agent that my book is basically dead…and I’m contemplating whether to finish a suspense I started several years ago or do a 180 and write something totally new.Now if I had you as a crit partner, the suspense would be a no brainer!
