Be that as it may, it's time to dial back on the promoting and marketing and concentrate on a new project. I have been working on a new book that I hope to have out by the late fall of 2014. The book is well over 75% finished, but I'd rather set the release date further down the road so that I can spend the necessary time in revising it and getting it proof-read. There weren't too many typos in the earliest versions of The Guilty, but there were still enough to be embarrassing; so this time I will definitely do what needs to be done to put out as clean a manuscript as possible from the first time out.
Many of the reviews and comments on The Guilty showed there was an interest in more tales based in Montreal's courtroom scene, especially if they involved the main character, Robert Bratt. I've actually had two books in the pipeline, one of which would have satisfied the above-mentioned readers, at least in part. A Crooked Little Man is the story of a Montreal lawyer, but someone who is personally and professionally the polar opposite of Robert Bratt. Bratt will make an appearance or two in this book, although his will be a supporting role. The second book I've been working on is With My Last Breath: it's my first foray into dystopian fiction about our world in 25 years from now. I needed to get away from courtrooms and lawyers for a while, so I've been putting all my efforts into finishing this book, while hoping that readers of legal thrillers will be patient with me. I have posted on my page a draft of the first chapter, which may well-include typos (although I've tried to find them all), and which is written in the overly-long and wordy style that a good editor will eventually help me correct. More samples will be posted from time to time, and all commentary (even if it's to say the story is boring and pointless) is welcome.
