Reflections . . . 


I know a good many of my readers personally, and yet I'm often flattered beyond believe about the kind words they have to say about my books.  Recently at work, the annual insurance signup was taking place, and most every morning when I went in, there was someone there with the two representatives, changing their insurance choices. Some of them I haven't seen for months, and I interrupted their task to get a quick hug and brief catch-up. When it came my time to meet with the rep, she said she couldn't wait to ask me about the books because so many people had told her about them! 


It felt terrific to know people were talking about the books, and that many of them are waiting, maybe not so patiently, for the next one.  


So here we go, folks. Working, snatching minutes and hours when I can, snippet by snippet, I am working on the tentative "Dreams of Like Souls."  I hesitate to even give a clue for the sake of those who haven't finished the first four, but it's currently not narrated by Julie as the previous four were.  


One person so far has mentioned wanting a character named after them.  I'm always happy to see what I can do, so if that is something YOU have wanted to do, send me a Facebook Message at the link above.
