COMING ATTRACTIONS

Want to keep up with what's in the publishing pipeline? This is the place to find out. I'll be updating this page periodically so you'll know the status of the various projects I'm working on and when you can expect them to hit the shelves.

Highway 99: california's main street

Description: History of U.S. Highway 99 in California, covering everything from the old restaurants and filling stations that lined the road to some of the famous people who drove it. Read about the Old Ridge Route that connected Northern and Southern California; the boom town of Kennett, now submerged under Shasta Lake; the old Richfield Beacon stations that lit the way for pilots and drivers alike; and much more. Illustrated with historical photos from the archives of Caltrans, historical societies and other collections, as well as the author's own contemporary photos.

Length: 110,000 words.

Publication date: September 15, 2017.

Status: Book sent to the printer. Delivery coming soon!

HIGHWAY 101 PROJECT

Description: History of U.S. Highway 101 in California (non-fiction).

Length: 90,000 words (target).

Status: Writing and photography done. Finishing up selection and placement of photos now. This work is very similar to Highway 99 and, like it, will be divided into two parts: a history of the highway and a tour of the highway. Illustrated with color and black-and-white photos, both historical and taken by the author, it chronicles the history of the road from San Diego up through the redwoods. Find out how the highway evolved and visit popular destinations, past and present, such as Pea Soup Andersen's in Buellton, the Golden Gate Bridge, Confusion Hill on the Redwood Highway and the world's first motel in San Luis Obispo.

MEMORTALITY, PART II

Description: Sequel to "Memortality" (working title chosen; firm title to be announced).

Length: 99,000 words.

Publication date: Spring 2018 (target date).

Status: Writing complete as of December 2016, with second and third drafts also done. Submitted to publisher. 

MEMORTALITY, PART III

Description: Sequel to "Memortality" (working title chosen; firm title to be announced).

Length: TBA. First two chapters written. This will be the grand finale of the series ... unless I decide to revisit Minerva and her world at a later date ... which is always possible!

Publication date: TBA.

Status: Writing in progress. 

UNTITLED NOVEL

Description: A stand-alone novel set in an entirely different world than the "Memortality" series, this one is a bit of a departure: Light science fiction/fantasy along the lines of Robert Lynn Asprin's "Myth" series; Terry Brooks' "Magic Kingdom" series and Terry Pratchett's "Discworld." One fellow author who read the first few thousand words of the first draft compared it to "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy."

Length: TBA; shooting for about 75,000 words. First four chapters (5,000 words) written; otherwise, in conceptual stage.

Publication date: TBA.

Status: Writing in progress.
