This corona virus threat really has knocked me for a loop. We here are all safe and uninfected as far as I can tell. I get to work from home for the foreseeable future, which I see as a blessing and a curse. (I think I’m more productive when I have direct access to the people I work with.)
Worse news is that the 2020 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention, where I was planning on debuting my next book, has been postponed until September. As I mentioned before, I was planning to release book two in April at the Pulp convention, then release book three at the Tamale Hut for my Feature Reader spot in October. I think I’ll have to rethink this plan.
The good news is that I don’t have to rush to get book two in print for the show. The story is currently being edited and should be available to order in late-April or early-May.

Kristina “Kiki” Hansen and Bridget Doyle fell in love with aviation while in college. After graduation, they obtained one of the thousands of airplanes left over from the First World War and taught themselves the kinds of stunts that thrilled audiences all across the country, and that had made barnstorming one of the most popular forms of entertainment during the Roaring Twenties.
But by the middle of the decade, the U.S. Post Office began to hire private airlines to deliver mail, and the money involved in such contracts made certain undesirable elements of society take notice. Suddenly, the risks these daredevils faced were not only in the skies.
Follow our two intrepid aviatrices as they face action and adventure in this tale, set in the early days of aviation, and written as a homage to the cliffhanger serials of the first half of the twentieth century.
Barnstormers Book One is available at Amazon.com in paperback or Kindle.
