Time for another TBR book giveaway!
And a few updates. I’m shooting to get Penton #5 done by the end of the year. It will be Nik’s story, technically, but also bring together the whole crew. This will be the last book in the Penton series per se since the publisher has decided not to continue it. If there’s enough reader interest, I will go back and pick up the Omega Force series idea, which the Penton characters can play a role in. I think Mirren Kincaid would be a great anti-terrorist agent, don’t you?
Anyway, revisions are all done on what has been retitled WILD MAN’S CURSE, book one in the series now being called WILDS OF THE BAYOU. Still no release date, but I should know something pretty soon and it’s about time to start working on the cover. Can’t wait to see what my publisher comes up with!
Thanks for sharing all your hobbies with me on Tuesday–since Roger does woodworking, I thought I’d share a gift I recently received from Jean Lafitte…well, okay, my friends Debbie & JL. JL built the trunk (which is HUGE, although you might not be able to tell from the photo), while Debbie lettered the top and picked out the hardware. After much debate, I decided to put a first edition of each of my books inside. There’s still a lot more room so guess I have to write a lot more books!
Finally, here are a few photos of the real PENTON, which I visited on a recent afternoon drive. And since it’s National Nut Day, tell me your favorite nut (or if you’re allergic to nuts, you can tell me that) to be entered for the TBR giveaway. Nuts can include people, by the way, in my opinion. I have worked for quite a few of them in my day.
Here’s the Penton Church of God, which I turned into a Baptist church and I believe I blew it up in Omega 🙂
Love the tin roof on the old Penton Garage. I don’t think it’s in business any longer.
Entrance to the Penton Raceway, a dirt-track traceway down a dirt road. I think it’s Penton’s claim to fame.
Penton has a restaurant! This has opened since my last foray into Penton.
And yeah, we got lost trying to find Penton and had to stop at a convenience store (probably the one Mark got stabbed outside in Redemption) and get directions. I think getting lost trying to find Penton qualifies me as a nut. So what’s your favorite nut (actually, mine are pecans).
