Well, no, you can't read the whole story yet, but I've finished writing, editing, and uploading all the remaining chapters of "The Prodigal." They'll post weekly until the conclusion on August 12. Actually, the last seven chapters will post twice a week. That's because the last three chapters got so long and unwieldy that I was encouraged by my editor, Old Rotorhead, to cut them up and expand them. The result was seven chapters instead of three, but I decided to still post them in the three weeks that they would have occupied as consolidated chapters.

If you get really impatient, waiting for those last seven or eight chapters to post, I'm expecting to release the eBook version on Kindle and Nook in mid-July. So if you just can't wait, or if you just want to show your undying love and support for the author, you'll be able to buy them then. :-)

What's next? I'm not absolutely positive, although I know there will be one last interview in Triptych Interviews after the last chapter posts. I've timed the conclusion to coincide with my departure on a long-awaited journey around the country. I'll be taking my time, but I don't know where, as the song goes. I have at least half a dozen book-length projects underway and I'm pretty sure my occult fantasy series will be making its debut here on SOL by September. Even though I began this series in 1980, it's never been published and the clean drafts will be a major project while I'm sitting in my travel trailer. I'm also determined to write my Erotic Paranormal Romance Western Mystery in November this year, possibly while my alter-ego writes another in his detective mystery series in the "real world."

I will say that I'm hoping to meet a lot of people as I tour the country, sometimes giving out books as I go, maybe even speaking to groups on occasion and reading from my "legit" works. I expect two new books in print by the end of the year, one of which will be my first erotic romance to jump past eBook into paper. If you'd like to meet up for a cup of coffee or a beer when I pass through your area, let me know. I don't know when it will be, but I'm more likely to travel places where I meet people than isolate myself after the first three months. There will be more about that trip and where you can get info about it in a future post.

Well, I hope you enjoy the last thirteen chapters of "The Prodigal." I'm on to the next project!
