The New Garison Fitch

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I spent a good bit of time this past weekend writing on the newest Garison Fitch novel. What’s fun about this process is that while I know where I’m going, it’s often surprising how I get there. Picture a car ride. I start in Dallas with the idea that I want to get to Seattle… Read more »

Re-Writing

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I enjoy re-writing in that I enjoy getting back into a story. It’s irritating to find all the mistakes I left in there on the previous go-round, but there’s a certain pleasure in correcting those things. What’s hard (I like it, but it’s a challenge) is when I come to a part that either needs… Read more »

Writin’ Process, part 2

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

This past summer, I wrote the newest novel about Bat Garrett (which, for now, is nameless because I keep rejecting all of my own suggestions). Writing it was just about as close to total joy as I think I can expect this side of heaven. I enjoy writing (it’s why I’m thankful that I’m called… Read more »

The Writing Process

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

When I write a story, the first thing I do (this will surprise you) is write the story. It’s not that I pay no attention to spelling or grammar or stuff like that–I’m a fairly fastidious person where such things are concerned–but it’s not my prime objective. At the beginning, I just want to get… Read more »

September White Sale

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

This September, I’m putting all my full-length novels available on Kindle on sale. As you may have guessed, I have no clue what I’m doing as far as marketing my books, so this is an experiment. The price I orginally marked my books at was about half the paperback price for the Garison Fitch books… Read more »

Hoorah!

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Just finished the first draft of the next book in the Bat Garrett cycle today! It’s a motive mystery with a twist and really goes in directions I never imagined. Hope you like it … though I don’t know when you’ll see it. I need to take a couple months away from it and then… Read more »

A Recently Written Passage

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I scrambled quickly over to it and reached through the shattered glass that had been the passenger side window to find a pulse in Jody’s neck. She was hanging upside down by the seatbelts and there was blood on one of her arms. I detected a pulse and said a prayer of thanks. I realized… Read more »

Fan Letter

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

The following is from a fan letter from a reader (I’ll call him “R”) from South Carolina. Thought you might be interested. (And thanks, R, for writing!) You asked which are my favorite characters? That is kind of like asking me which chocolate in a box of chocolates is my favorite. The thing that makes… Read more »
