Some Jon and Lobo news

I've been working hard to stop myself from talking about works in progress, because I believe that doing so is one of the ways I create crazy noise in my head. (Many of my friends disagree with this decision, but so it goes.) Despite that inclination, I thought it might be nice to give you two fun facts about the next book, the fifth in the series.

First, it now seems fairly certain that it will appear in February, 2012. I know that's a long time--18 months--between books, but I got busy with some other stuff, including editing and writing an original story for The Wild Side. That anthology, with my contribution, "The Long Dark Night of Diego Chan," will appear this coming summer, as I've noted in earlier posts, so you'll at least have a nice chunk of new fiction from me in 2011.

Next, after more than than the usual amount of thought on the topic, I finally settled on a title for the novel, one that makes me happy because it works on multiple levels.

No, I won't tell you what those levels are; you'll just have to read the book.

So, in true James Bond style, I will close with this end-of-the-credits announcement:

Jon and Lobo will return in

No Going Back

On behalf of your fans, thank you! Can't wait until 2012 to read it.

Thanks for the kind words and the support, Michelle. I truly appreciate both.

That's terrible! I guess I'll have to wait.

All histrionics aside, I enjoyed last two Jon and Lobo books quite a bit and I'm looking forward to the next one in 2012. Early 2012 right?

Sorry for the delay, but, yes, February 2012. I hope you pick up the first two books and enjoy them in the interim. Thanks for the support and the kind words.
