Friday Update!

Gravedigger_06_smallSales have been brisk on the new Gravedigger book and all the feedback I’ve received so far has been very positive. I’ve gotten several questions about whether or not I’d want to write more books about the other Gravediggers from throughout history – or even the modern day version, whomever that might be. The answer is that I have plenty of ideas for such things but I don’t have any immediate plans to do so. Right now I’m working on a short story featuring The Black Terror, The Golden Amazon, The Fighting Yank and Olga Mesmer – it’s set right after the 9th Lazarus Gray volume. Once I’m done with this, I have a story I started based on an idea from Jim Beard and I’m also tempted to start the 10th book of Lazarus Gray… and I have a few other ideas, as well. We’ll see what happens.

Reading (and enjoying) THE OUTSIDER by Stephen King. It’s the best thing I’ve read him in a long time but I’m only halfway through the book so there’s still time for him to disappoint me!

Comic-book wise, I can’t recommend DOMINO from Gail Simone and Marvel Comics enough. Great stuff!
