Sometimes it just seems ya need a break. I find it necessary about every 60 to 90 days. 4 weeks ago I took a break and went hiking for three days. I’m still on that break. Longest break I’ve taken in years. Finished a manuscript and sent it to a couple of alpha readers. Waiting on them. Started another story and waiting on it. The voice in my head that leads me down the pages is on a break. I am sleeping like Rumple Stilsckin due to having the hacking, wheezing crud that’s going around. The dizzy spells are the worst part of it.
DEACON is out. You can get your copy at http://www.amazon.com/author/dougball. There are few reviews on Amazon, the comments I’m getting from the toughest critics I know:
Doug, it’s your best.
I really enjoyed it and want a sequel. (It’s coming)
This is better than >>>>>>>>’s newest book and it just wouldn’t let me go.
Back in the olden days they wrote great westerns, you have brought back the genre.
I could keep bragging, but my wife won’t let me. She wants the sequel.
