Yes, I'm still alive. Just about the time I thought I was well enough to start blogging again, I had a serious set back. But, hopefully, this is it. I'm getting really, really tired of doctors.
As for what's been going on (other than a rather tiresome struggle to stay alive), I have managed for the most part to keep chugging away at book number nine in the Sebastian series. In fact, thanks to so many days of enforced rest, I'm actually ahead of where I'd hoped to be at this point. I suppose it's one of the advantages of being in the habit of writing by hand on legal pads.
We also have a pretty amazing new cover for What Darkness Brings, although thanks to the peculiarities of the publishing industry and a bunch of legalities, I can't show it to you yet. But I can give you a hint: Picture a medieval tower, some spooky bare tree limbs, and Sebastian looking up. It's quite a departure from the previous covers, and I'm anxious to hear what you think.
While I was down and almost out, Blogger fiddled with all their settings, with the result that I'm not sure what this is going to look like when I hit "Publish." So if it looks weird, you'll know why!
The photo was taken by my daughter, Danielle, with the new Canon Rebel we gave her for her birthday this week.
