I'm off to spend the next several days getting my home ready for a refinancing appraisal -- and if you've followed how busy I've been, you know why it will take several days.
Meanwhile, I'm officially announcing what many of you already know: In May, 2012, Whiskey Creek Press will release Storm Chaser Shorts, a collection of short stories featuring the characters from Storm Chaser. The 14,000 word work features 10 stories, and will be available as an e-book only -- so save space on your e-readers/phones/computers/whatever the heck else someone comes up with between now and then!Here's the blurb that sealed the deal for me:
Just like the weather, a person’s story changes all the time. Sometime it’s a romance, sometimes a comedy, and when things go badly it can be a fine line between action-adventure and tragedy.
Storm Chaser Shorts follows two converging stories. One involves the family and friends of Indiana State Trooper Chance Hamlin, who struggles to defend his hometown of Hurricane and his family from all manner of threats – whether they want him to or not. The other follows disaster photographer Allie Craine and those pulled into the wake of her passing, as she’s tailed by the shadowy and disaster prone Luther Magee.
Seven stories are set before, and three after, the events of Storm Chaser. Like the weather – and life – the tales are diverse, ranging from humor and adventure to what may be downright mystical.
After all, life with a Storm Chaser is as diverse as the weather.
Storm Chaser is still available through amazon.com, amazon.com.uk, fictionwise.com, whiskeycreekpress.com, and markrhunter.com., and in print on my website, at the Albion New Era and Churubusco News newspaper offices, and at The Bookmark in Fort Wayne. Here's a new review I just stumbled across:
And I found the video Emily made for the book here:
Yes, I Googled myself. Don't mock me! As of today, Storm Chaser is still listed as #5 on the Whiskey Creek Press top 10 list.
