June 2013 Update

Keeping with my original pledge to publish two Undead Bar Association books per year, I'm currently working on Book 4, Deadhand Control. The plan is to publish Book 4 in early December. Out in time for Christmas shopping.

The Undead Bar Association is a fiction series where law, history, and the supernatural collide. Some books have a strong supernatural element, like Books 1 and 3. Others, like Book 2 and work-in-process Book 4, pack in a lot of history.

Book 4 is ambitious. There's a lot of Texas history in this one. Don't worry; there's supernatural too. Imagine pitting evil modern magic against the ancient magic of the Comanche and Kiowa Indians. But the sheer amount of the historic research...wow.

I beleive in doing the best I can, with given time and resource constraints, to thoroughly research the background of every UBA book. For Book 4, that means traveling througout the Texas, visiting museums and battle sites.

It's a lot to take on. Because of the scope, I'm taking a new step in the writing process. I'm launching a Kickstarter project for funding.

Look for details about the project in the near future. For now, I'm up to my elbows in 1870s Army, Pioneer, and Indian autobiographies.

Until then, read on!
