Where To Send Them Next?

You would think that adventure would be lurking around every corner, and mischief easy to get into, but it's not so easy as all that. Well, perhaps for the living it is, if you try very hard. But for fictional characters it's a waiting game. Waiting for the author to make up their mind as to which point on the map to send you, and just what kind of problems are waiting on the next page or chapter.

The next book in the Cozy American Castle Mystery series is one fraught with decisions. Where will the characters hang out as they leave the Thousand Islands and to which American castle shall I send them. There are so many to choose from. Will they go by boat, train, plane, automobile, or motorcycle? Will there be romance? How much intrigue is too much? Is that really possible or has your imagination gone too far?

By the time November 2019 rolls around, Lord willing, I should have answers to those questions, and many more. In the meantime, check out The End Of Things At Dark Island. It's anything but the end, at least for Howard and Effie.

YouTube Channel Abandoned

YouTube is a great platform for uploading videos, if you have a lot of time to record, edit, and upload. I am finding, with my writing schedule and other responsibilities, and some redundancies evident between that platform and this one that I simply prefer blogging.

In older posts on this blog, you will find links to previous YouTube videos I created for They are no longer active. Sorry about that. I didn't fully consider just how much time it would take to keep the channel going in addition to this blog.

I will still create book trailer videos from time to time. I will upload those to a public folder on Google Drive and provide a link to their location. I promise to try to keep them short so that you won't have to twiddle your thumbs ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Žwhile waiting for them to play. It seems to take a moment longer for them to play, depending on the speed of your computer and your Internet connection. Be patient.

In the meantime, I have begun constructing the next book in the Cozy American Castle Mystery series of books. Our hero and heroine have to make another stop in New York City before moving on. I'm not sure where their main antagonist is hiding at the moment, but I'm sure he will turn up at some point. He may bring friends.

See you at the next American castle.
