Silent Counsel

When you signed up for my mailing list, I promised you that I wouldn't flood your inbox with annoying chatter and would instead write you when I actually had something significant (in my mind, at least) to tell you.

Checking my records, I see that it's been a year and a half since I've emailed you. Does that mean I haven't been doing anything in the last eighteen months? No—I've actually been pretty busy, and I do try to keep in touch with everyone through Facebook, which allows me to communicate on the spur of the moment. If we're not already Facebook friends, I hope you'll consider looking for me there. And by there, I mean here.

There is one exciting bit of news to share: I recently had the good fortune to sign with Suspense Publishing, which agreed to release Silent Counsel in paperback. Although the hardcover edition sold out long ago (and the original publisher isn't around any longer to print any more), I've been very fortunate that the book has continued to do well in electronic form. But now—as of two days ago—it's available for the first time in paperback. Sporting a brand new cover.

Just in time for Father's Day. If Dad hasn't read it yet, maybe now's the time. And gifts don't have to be printed on paper, so below are the places to get the newly released electronic version of Silent Counsel. Most of these sites allow you to gift the book to Dad, or anyone else you think might enjoy it.

To celebrate the re-release of Silent Counsel, my website has undergone a complete metamorphosis, thanks to the extremely talented Maddee James, of, and her wonderful assistant, Jen Forbus. Please take a look.

It's always gratifying when people ask me when they can expect my next book. Well, there's good news and not-as-good news on that. The book, Death Benefit, is finished. But it's looking for a publishing home. You're probably aware that the industry has undergone major changes in the last few years. With the explosion of digital publishing, traditional publishers are struggling to make sense of the new world. Against this backdrop, I'm exploring my options and deciding on the most sensible way to bring Death Benefit to you. And I want to do that as quickly as I can. So please do "stay tuned."

Finally, on a personal note, I'd like to share a photo with you, which commemorates the highlight of 2013 for me. Sylvia and I celebrated our fifteenth wedding anniversary a year ago, and we visited Bermuda, where we renewed our vows. Here's one of my favorite shots, taken in the garden of the Waterlot Inn at the Fairmont Southampton. What fun it was to return to Bermuda after our first trip there in 1978!

I'm well aware that you get a lot of...stuff in your inbox, and I truly do thank you for the opportunity to share these things with you. It means more to me than you could know.

Until next time...
