I am pleased to announce that on April 30th at 3 PM I submitted the final draft of my novel Irontown Blues, a full six hours ahead of the deadline!

Irontown Blues is the third, and final, installment of what I call my “Metal Trilogy.” This began with Steel Beach in 1992, the story of Hildy Johnson, a reporter in my Eight Worlds universe. It continued in 1998 with The Golden Globe, which followed the adventures of an actor named “Sparky” Valentine. Now, almost twenty years later, Irontown Blues wraps up the cycle with Christopher Bach and his faithful dog Sherlock, private detectives. So the game is afoot!

If things go as planned the book might see publication this September. However, since my editor is so far behind on her job that it will be another three weeks, at least, until she can even read it, I would not be surprised if that date was pushed back. Check back here for further news.
