Howard And Effie's Next Destination Is Chosen

Howard Mantry and Effie Portchester will soon be on their way from New York to their next island adventure. This one takes them outside the Thousand Island region and up a river.

Up A River Without A Paddle?

The title of the next book has been decided, but that's not it. You'll have to wait until November 1 for it to be revealed. But being "up a river without a paddle" is just how Howard and Effie may feel when they debark their boat and enter into a world secretive and somewhat hostile.

In this, their second journey together, they'll encounter some dangerous and determined personalities and acquire a new ally who will help them navigate the dangerous waters they're sailing. I hope it will be a story that will keep readers awake nights and turning pages. The treasure they seek isn't of a jeweled nature, but it is priceless.

While you wait for the new novel to be revealed in November, I'll get on with the research side of things. There is a lot to do. By the end of November 2019, you should be able to read a few posts about -- oops! I almost let the title slip its moorings.

Before November arrives there are a few things you may want to do. 

  1. Break out your life jacket and give it a good dusting. Make sure it's still buoyant.
  2. Practice up on your swimming techniques. 
  3. Spend some time sitting in a lounge chair by the pool with a book in your hands. Turning pages can be tiring. Better have a snack and a drink handy. 
  4. Try some deep breathing exercises to help pass the time. 
In the meantime, I'll do the research, layout the book, tap out the chapters, get Howard and Effie into and out of trouble, and add in a dash of this and that for good measure.
