Temple's Ghost is different for me. It's the first of my books not set in the South, hence the absence of southern dialect. Don't worry, I have not abandoned my roots. I'm simply trying to branch out as an author. Writing Temple's Ghost proved to be an enjoyable challenge, and one I sincerely hope you enjoy reading.
Before you ask about setting, let me admit up front that I don't know where the story takes place. Echo City is a fictional town located a hard day's drive from New York City. A handful of hours south of Detroit. I've honestly never tried to pinpoint it any closer than that because it doesn't matter. Echo City could be anywhere.
This week I released Temple's Ghost in e-book formats on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords (which distributes it to Apple, Kobo, and a host of other sites). The paperback version is in the review process and, assuming I find no issues with the proof I should receive in the mail next week, will be available by the end of June (today is June 26, 2016).
Releasing a new novel is a bit like standing naked in front of a crowded room, so here I stand, awaiting your reaction. It gets easier each time I do it, though, and that's because I have the best readers in the world.
If your local library or bookstore doesn't carry the paperback version of my books, please ask them to.
