In December 2019, I announced the epigraph for my forthcoming book The Lost Mine Trail.
Guess who cites the same Machiavelli quotation in his just-published (March 2020) novel Long Range? Best-selling author C J Box! I guess we've both been exploring the theme of retribution. (I'm sticking with Machiavelli.)
The manuscript of The Lost Mine Trail just pushed past 50,000 words, its progress slowed a bit by plot complications. That's what mysteries are about.
As always, expect puzzling crimes, troubled romance, and good-natured humor. I expect to have The Lost Mine Trail in print by late fall, 2020.
