Not much news to report on my upcoming release of The Unfinished Gift. Except some bookmarks I made have come in. They came out really nice (click on the pic to see the largest bookmark you've ever seen...it's just the front side). Passing them out to family and friends at church. I'll be giving them away at future book signings, not just to those who buy the book but to anyone who looks at me for more than a few seconds. Whenever the stores finally take the book off the shelf, I'll rent a plane and drop the rest over the city.
I'm using my writing time these days trying to finish my 3rd novel, tentatively titled, The Deepest Waters. It's in the same genre as my first two books but with different characters and a different time and place. Inspired by a true story, it's set in 1857 and involves a newlywed couple separated by a shipwreck. We'll be spending time in old New York City, in San Francisco during the Gold Rush years, and experience life in the open sea aboard old wooden ships. The real, historical events that inspired my fictional tale are truly miraculous and amazing.
