Over the past few weeks, I’ve posted often about my upcoming fourth novel, Whizzers. I spent years working on about the first 30% of the book, then burned through the remaining 70% from late 2018 through March 2019.
So now it’s the thing on the front burner. When I finished my third novel, Miles of Files, I knew that Whizzers had to be next. Frankly, it’s the best novel I’ve ever written, and I’m thrilled with how it came out.
It’s a funny thing, though: I don’t really like to talk about it! And I had a strong feeling about this last week while speaking with someone at a networking event. He asked me about the book, and the longer I talked, the worse I felt. Somehow it felt like I was giving my fire away.
Now, I’ve read other writers who say they never talk about their current works-in-progress for that very reason. I’ve never really had the experience–until now. And even though the book is finished, and coming out July 21st, I still feel the same way.
I can give you this much, though, and that’s the blurb. It reads as follows.
A recovering alcoholic, Mike, discovers his six-year-old cousin, David, travels through time as a whizzer to bring comfort to those in need. Mike soon finds himself along for the ride, and while he gets the opportunity to bring solace to some of his greatest heroes, he must also confront his own greatest demons.
Whizzers is something special. This novel by far my most autobiographical work. It’s also ambitious, in that it fits into a genre called Metaphysical & Visionary Fiction, which is a new one to me.
And that’s it. You’ll have to order a copy to learn more!
