New Signed Contract
So here's the news from my neck of the woods. Yesterday I signed a new contract with Zondervan. This one's for four more adult suspense novels. The first will be Book #4 (the final one) in the Kanner Lake series. The next three are three stand-alone novels. The first of those novels has a title and basic plot; the other two are "blind" books--in other words, I'll somehow manage to figure 'em out when I get there.
As with my past Seatbelt Suspense novels, these will be spaced about seven months apart.
Right now I am finishing up in the next few weeks (if I live that long) the last book in my current contract--Crimson Eve, book #3 in the Kanner Lake series.
So, overall, here's the line-up for me as far as when my next six books (two from current contract and four from new contract) will hit shelves:
Coral Moon (Kanner Lake #2)--March 2007
Crimson Eve (Kanner Lake #3)--Sept. 2007
Kanner Lake #4 (not yet titled)--April 2008
First Stand-Alone--November 2008
Second Stand-Alone--June 2009
Third Stand-Alone--January 2010
This will be enough to keep me out of trouble for awhile.
Zondervan continues to be a great house for me, and I'm delighted to be sticking with them for another four books. Hey, they send their editors out to visit our Coeur d'Alene home, and I give 'em a bear sighting in their first hour on the property. I'd say that's a great partnership.
