OK, so it's been a little while. I've spent 2014 on some other projects that you may or may not ever hear about (left: "research"). But some of you, including everyone who's asked over the holidays, will want to know that, yes, 2015 will bring the fourth Baxter mystery. In keeping with my seasonal theme, it's set in the winter. Like the third book, REVOLUTION ROCK, it begins with a flashback, then picks up the story in the present. Truth be told, I wrote that flashback in just a couple of days, months ago when inspiration struck - two chapters totaling about 4,000 words. Often such bursts of enthusiasm go nowhere, but I re-read it recently, and I still think it rocks. So this past Sunday I started writing again at Chapter Three. My plan is to have a finished product for you in the fall. And like REVOLUTION ROCK, it's got a tight, linear plot, which I'm sure I'll finish figuring out at some point around Easter. The setting for much of the story moves a couple of miles east from downtown Libertyport. More on that soon, by which time maybe I'll be comfortable enough with the (current) title to tell you what it is. Until then, thanks for all your interest.
