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In older posts on this blog, you will find links to previous YouTube videos I created for They are no longer active.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.

What's Next?

I will be revamping the page within the next week or two to prepare for Book 2 in the American Castle Mystery series. In the meantime, while you're waiting to see what the next installment will be, I have officially launched on Amazon the first book in the series. The e-book version of The End Of Things At Dark Island is available for purchase, and the print version should become available within a few days. So, you have time to do a bit of reading.

If you would like to chat with me about the book, I have set up a YouTube channel. Just click on the "Discussion" tab. No spoilers, please! You can also subscribe (no fees) to the channel. Don't forget to click the "bell" icon next to the subscribe button so that you can be alerted to new posts on that channel page.

Well, I'm off to plan Howard and Effie's next mystery, and do a little plotting with the main protagonist.

By the way, was the mystery totally solved in Book 1? Was it? Enjoy the story.
