Good Times

Flippin' heck. Has it really been two weeks since I last updated this blog? Shame on me.

Well, just so you know, I haven't squandered the time. I'm writing! Like a demon, actually. Cranking out more words than I have in nearly six months. The novel I'm working on, titled FINAL SCORE is approaching 25K words and the ideas are still coming. I doubt I'll finished the first draft before the baby comes along in early July, but if I can get to the final third before then I'll be whistling Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah.

Anyway, I'll have to get the Requiems for the Departed series of interviews and introductions back on track. In the meantime, in case you missed the links on my Facebook page or over at Dec Burke's Crime Always Pays, click here to read an excellent feature on the collection at The Irish Times.

Fantastic, Gerard. Keep going!

Excellent news. Keep it up. The middle of a new novel is the hardest. How do we get RFTD in the U.S.?

Sean, the book will definitely be available on Amazon in the US. It may be a week or two after the official launch at No Alibis in Belfast, but it'll be on Amazon eventually.
