The good news is that I am putting the finishing touches on the latest book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series. I’m just working with my fab beta readers to do a final touch up. And I have a new publisher for the series. Friesen Press from Victoria, British Columbia will be publishing the next book in the series and they are already working on putting it together. The not so good news is that this will delay the publication of A Long Ways from Home. Given the time it will take, this will likely mean a late Summer/Fall publication date, but that is yet to be confirmed.
Thank you for your patience and on-going support of my work and of the Windflower series. It has been a great journey so far and I am so pleased that you have been with me. To thank you and to keep Windflower alive while I am not so patiently going waiting for the publication process to evolve, I am going to do 2 things. One is I am going to start another Windflower book. The ideas are bubbling up so I am getting back to work. Hopefully, that can mean another book release early in the new year.
The second thing involves you. I am thinking about releasing one chapter of A Long Ways from Home every couple of weeks until the book gets published. I will do this through my blog and on the Sgt. Windflower Facebook page. I would also send it directly by e-mail to anyone who wanted it as well. My question for you is this. Do you think this is a good idea and would you like me to do this? I do not want to interfere with anyone’s pleasure in reading the full book and will try and limit the release of information that would give too much away. But my thinking is that this is a way for everybody who loves Windflower to stay in touch, while we’re waiting.

Tell me what you think. Also, for anyone who’s new here or hasn’t read any of the Windflower mysteries, let me know and I’ll send you a Kindle version of the first book, The Walker on the Cape.
