In 2018, I lost two publishers and learned a wealth of new skills. My Five-Minute Bible-Story series is now being rereleased with Inspired by Faith & Science, an imprint of Ink-Filled Stories, who have also rereleased my Mathemafiction novels. Meanwhile Amazon closed Createspace and my self-published books were rereleased with KDP. I suppose that makes this the year of the rerelease. A Nose for Adventure is still in the upcoming list with Linkville Press, so maybe it will be released in 2019. Meanwhile, here's a picture of my newly republished books, and one of me at the Oregon Historical Society Holiday Cheer event. Enjoy! And Happy Christmas!
Subtraction has been released. It looks wonderful. I'm so proud of it, and I really hope you'll read it. Three Mathemafiction novels from Indigo Sea Press complete the "Divide by Zero" cycle, and now I'm working on book four, Imaginary Numbers, which heads in a whole new direction. But why not enjoy those first three novels, experience guilt and forgiveness, replace despair with hope, and take a "Subtraction" road trip... with cats!
Then there are those Tales of Mystery. A Nose for Adventure has just completed two rounds of editing with Linkville Press and should soon be released on the unsuspecting world. See the world through the eyes of an adventurous little chihuahua and chase your tail while reading these tales!
Finally, those Five-Minute Bible Stories have grown to fill twelve books! I could turn them into a book a month club perhaps. The latest, Paul's Purpose, has just been released by Cape Arago Press and it looks great. I can't wait to see it in print. But which stories should I write next?
With thanks to JEAN, I've entered the Amazon Storyteller contest with three new releases,
Rose on the Vine (with special thanks to ELSIE, who kept telling me to publish my Beige Room stories) and
I'd love some ratings and reviews, not that I expect I have any hope of winning, but I'd like to try...

It's not on their "coming soon" page yet, but it's in the emails - is that kind of like "the check's in the mail"?
Anyway, Indigo Sea do say that Infinite Sum is coming soon, and they even have a temporary cover for it, so watch this space.....

Tails of Mystery: Wagging, drooping, waving, sagging, snooping definitely...
Set for release in June 2015 !
Look out for Infinite Sum, companion novel to Divide by Zero:
A slash of red; a slash of black; then Sylvia’s paintbrush turns beauty turns into terror and darkness again. Her youngest child is almost ten, but Sylvia’s world seems destined to fall apart. Her therapist believes the answers lie in her art, but will they be found among boxes and frames in the attic, or in the angry colors she pours onto canvases in class? As memories new and old pile ever higher, Sylvia learns life is more about the infinite promise of joys to come than the sum of things done. Even so, will her nightmares let her go?
Divide by Zero, originally published by Stonegarden.net, has been given its second wind and rereleased by Second Wind Publishing. Not only that, but three sequels are on their way. Find out where the mathematical series began; meet the characters; see how a young boy can raise a subdivision. Then watch out for
because Sylvia's life is an infinite sum of troubles, and Andrew's busily subtracting everything he can from his past.

Jerusalem Journey is about to be released in print, just in time for Christmas, completing a Gospel quartet of children's storybooks. Not quite Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, but that's certainly what they're based on, plus some history, science, geography and archeology to remind us, it's all real. Enjoy!
