Yesterday afternoon, I typed the best 2 Words an author gets to type in a manuscript: THE END. I finished the manuscript for Remembering Dresden, Book 2 in the Jack Turner Suspense series. My wife and editor, Cindi, has already been editing the book and is more than halfway through. Then it goes to the proofreaders, then to the formatter. All of this to say, it should be out no later than May 1st.But I’ve already completed the Front Cover for the book and the Back Cover blurb (the paragraph on the back that gives you a thumbnail sketch of the book without giving too much away).
Here’s the Back Cover blurb for Remembering Dresden:
Young history professor, Jack Turner, takes a retreat at a lakeside cabin just outside of Culpepper, Georgia to work on his doctoral dissertation. The cabin is owned by an ambitious state senator, an inheritance from his father. Inside, everything is exactly the way it was when the old man died ten years ago. While taking a break from his research, Jack snoops through the father’s books and finds an old photo album filled with black-and-white pictures of orphaned children. Intrigued, he continues searching and finds what appears to be evidence of murder and an old leather journal, handwritten entirely in German. Rachel Cook, Jack’s girlfriend, translates the journal for him. What it reveals suddenly puts both of their lives in mortal danger.
Besides his bestselling inspirational novels, Dan Walsh is quickly becoming known for “unputdownable” novels of suspense.
This was so much fun to write and includes all the characters from Book 1 in the Series, When Night Comes (except, of course, the bad guys who died). As with the first book, it is set in Culpepper, Georgia, a sleepy southern college town. And again, you can expect another tense, sometimes thrilling, but always clean suspense story.
When Night Comes – Marked Down
If you haven’t picked up a copy of When Night Comes yet (Book 1 in the series), I’ve just marked it down by 50%. It’s only $2.99 now. I’m writing the books so they can be read and enjoyed as stand-alones, but I think you’d really enjoy them more if you read them in order. You can CLICK HERE to get a Kindle copy. It’s totally FREE for Kindle Unlimited members. Nook readers can email me for a copy at the same price (purchase will be through PayPal, since B&N is only carrying the print version of the book). Just reply to this email and let me know if you’d like a Nook edition.
I’ll post on this blog again when Remembering Dresden is available for pre-order, probably in 2-3 weeks.
Ending on a Personal Note
Here’s a pic of my 2 grandkids with their Mom, Rebekah. That’s Caden and Nora at a nearby park a couple of weeks ago. It’s already getting warm enough here in the Daytona area not to need those sweatshirts anymore. Rebekah and her husband just set up a kiddy pool on their patio for the kids to swim in (our pool is still a little too chilly…maybe a few more weeks).
Hope you all have a wonderful beginning of Spring!
