     Recently I signed another contract with Musa, for a short story titled, "Kaishaku."  It's about a guy doing community service at a hospital who begins a friendship of sorts with a paralyzed man.  The patient turns out to have an extremely violent secret, albeit one with a twist....     I'm really looking forward to starting the whole process again--the editing, getting the book's cover made, and determining the tagline/blurb/excerpt.  And, of course, all of this followed by the actual publication.  Musa has really treated me well with "Dead Reckoning", so I'm very optimistic.
     Don't have a release date yet.  Judging from what I've seen of Musa's busy release schedule, I think it'll be out in July at the earliest, and quite possibly later.  Also don't have a category assigned, but I expect it will probably be Melpomene (Mystery/Suspense) once more.
     The title "Kaishaku" is not set in stone, either.  It's possible that it might be changed.  I'll post further updates on this new project.


  1. CONGRATULATIONS on the new contract, Paul!

    1. Thanks, Sloane. I'm very excited to get started on Book #2.
