Wow, radio silence here at Ridlerville. I guess illness, the insane fire at Chevron, travel, end of term work, cleaning house, writing a couple books and a few short stories have eaten my time!
A few small updates:
The third Spar Battersea thriller will be out shortly. It will be called (cue drum roll) . . . DICE ROLL! And it involves Spar, role playing games, an evil cult, and jujitsu. Tons and tons of jujitsu!
I don’t know if I will write another Spar book any time soon. I love the three I wrote, and I’m glad folks are enjoying them. But I needed a bit of a break. Other cool stuff for kindle awaits, however! So keep your eyes peeled. Much more Ridler mayhem on the horizon. And I’m sure Spar, the Bullet, and the gang will return. Of course, if you buy a lot of his books, I’ll get back at it, post haste!
I was thrilled to sell “Revenge of the Iron Shadow” a tale set in a alt history steampunk fantasy version of the old stomping grounds of Kingston, to Claude and Camille for the MASKED MOSAIC anthology of Canuck super hero stories. Huzzah!
I saw THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Loved it. Just stormed into my id, grabbed on, and made me feel every moment as if I was there. I know lots of folks had a hard time with some of the social commentary, and it was an ambitious closing number, but I found it captivating from start to finish. The cast was great, and the ending made me happy. Though I could have used a bit more of Bane getting the hell kicked out of him. But that’s just me!
The next month will see the completion of a novel, the nearing completion of a historical work, and a lot of other good things. Thanks for the support, amigos. Onward to the next great thing.
