IMG_5509My Nasty Leftovers books arrived. This is such a strange moment. It is filled with excitement and wonder. It is also tempered with some concern about whether these will sell or not. Did I just buy a bunch of books that will sit in a corner?

I now have a sufficient number for the events planned over the next couple of months. Check the Events page for details on what’s coming and what’s planned. I ordered more Sudden Mission copies, as well.

The book event at the Barnes & Noble in Twin Falls will have books already in stock, so that shouldn’t be a problem for those who want to purchase copies there. Of course, I’ll sign books you already have if you wish. If B&N won’t let you bring them in (some places are picky) we can sign them later at the hotel or something.

Screen Shot 2016-03-29 at 8.58.47 AMI will have both Sudden Mission and Nasty Leftovers available at the First Friday event, April 1, at Indaba Coffee on Broadway in Spokane. This is planned for 5 to 8 pm, but I won’t be reading all that time. I’m working on adding some musical entertainment and this should be a fun event.

Nasty Leftovers also has a new review. Fear Street Zombie posted her review up the other day. I really appreciate this, since she lives in an area hit by massive flooding and rain. She was out of the loop for about a week. So, I really appreciate her efforts.

If you can attend any of the events listed on the Events page, I appreciate it. I look forward to meeting and talking to readers and friends. Bring questions! This is actually one of the best parts of being an author.

Keep writing.




It is a new year. With it comes new challenges, new opportunities, and new adventures.

Christmas Harley

Happy New Year, 2016!

For me, this year will see the publication of the second novel in the Sudden Mission chronicles of Paul and Amy. I’m really looking forward to getting Nasty Leftovers out to readers. Stay tuned and be prepared for a late March launch from Vox Dei Publishing.

I’m still working on the third novel. So far, it’s an exciting and educational adventure to write. I plan to write it from Amy’s point of view. She’s turned into a powerful young woman and is going to turn things on their head.

I’m planning some library visits, readings, and talks, as well as some other reading/signing events in coffee shops and bookstores. Keep checking back for updates in the Events page. If something is happening in your neighborhood, please come by. Get a book signed, visit, ask questions. You might be surprised at where I’ll show up!

I plan to fill this year with writing, editing, rewriting, more editing, revisions, proofreading–and some motorcycle riding. I look forward to it. I hope you join me on the journey when you can.

Keep writing.



Christmas is coming, as are a couple of birthdays, and a lot of family and church events. We come to the end of another year and are thankful for our family being safe and whole while enduring a historic storm. I’m also thankful for finding Vox Dei Publishing, and getting Sudden Mission accepted, edited, and published. This has been quite a year.

decorated-tree2I’ve had a couple of readings and signings, and plan to do a lot more after the first of the year. I’m about half-way through edit for Nasty Leftovers, the sequel. I’m thinking things are getting good and we’re still on track for a possible end-of-March 2016 release date.

I don’t plan to post any more until 2016, unless I get a bug and write another short-short for the season. We’ll see. There is an idea germinating and it may burst forth soon.

I wish you and yours a blessed Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in 2016.

Keep writing.
