A Happy New Year Overview

Let me be the first to wish you a Happy New Year!

Hmmm...maybe not the first.




Probably not.

Well regardless, just hope your New Year is shaping up to be smashing.

Things are moving along here at DA Bale Publishing in 2018.  I'm hard at work on AIM BEFORE YOU SHOOT, the fifth book in the Bartender Babe Chronicles, and things are about to get hairy for your favorite heroine.  There are just some things you can't take back - no matter how long you stand in the return line after Christmas.  But don't worry!  It'll all come together with Vicki's blend of snark mixed with a little humor to make all those boo-boos better.

After that, I'll be wrapping up the BBC with the sixth and final book before yearend, which for an author will be here before we know it.  I hope you'll stay tuned for the turmoil in SHOOT BEFORE YOU BLINK.

Then at some point (haven't decided when) I'm going to introduce a new series to you.  Yes, that's right.  I'm writing a sci-fi space opera adventure as a homage to that dearly departed-too-soon television series Firefly.  The thing I loved about that show wasn't the technology or military tactics but the camaraderie of this simple band of misfit characters, and that's what I hope to highlight in my upcoming new series The Outliers.

And for all of you thriller lovers out there, I've been percolating a new idea for the past year now and have the opening chapter written out to start a new thriller series.  It's still in its infancy, but if all goes well this year, I hope to invest a bit more time in that one too.  No titles or series names at present, but once I finish the BBC series and get at least the rough draft of the second book in The Outliers finished, I'll probably delve into this one more deeply.

Lastly you can check out the interview I did with author JD Core on his Thrills and Mystery podcast just before Christmas by clicking HERE.  It's a little over thirty minutes long, but we sure had some fun and laughs, though I think I scared him at times.

I seem to have that affect on people.

Then before I forget, this is the last day for a big ninety-nine cent ebook sale with my fellow author Renee Pawlish.  She puts so much effort into organizing this every month, and this time I'm participating by offering DIE BEFORE YOU WAKE for only ninety-nine cents.  But hurry, because these offers are here and gone like Christmas.  Just click HERE to browse the wonderful array of ebooks and find your new favorite indie author today.

So now I lift a glass to you, my dear readers.  Thank you for a wonderful 2017, and here's hoping we'll have a great time together in 2018.  Cheers!
