David Telbat scowled at the pen in his fingers. It was his last pen and it had died before he had finished the last page of his latest novel. Deadlines had to be met! His agent was sending him messages. Readers were calling for more. But the pen was out of ink! Was this the end for David Telbat?!
Hello, my friends. Welcome to Telbat’s Tablet! My pen did indeed run out of ink, but, no, it wasn’t the end for me! 😉 Some of you have asked for the next novel to be released this minute! I must ask you to wait a little longer. I will find a new pen, soon! (Seriously, editing takes time, especially with my writing. ;)) And I really do prefer to write my first drafts by hand. I’ll tell you more about that sometime on my Writer’s Tablet.
DARK RULE is coming! This will be Book Three in The COIL Series (Dark Liaison is Book One; Book Two is Dark Hearted). Now, with Dark Rule, we dive into the Greek Isles with Nathan Isaacson for covert action against a communist faction. You know Nathan—he can’t do anything without causing a stir!
Though the current Dark Rule manuscript is right now in the hands of a couple of editors, after much discussion, I’ve had to make a difficult decision—I feel that this book is still too short. Therefore, I am already working hard at adding a whole new mission to the existing covert action! Yes, it means it won’t make it for Christmas—which we were really hoping to do—but it is more important to me that this book meets all your expectations, and that you readers enjoy this book as much as you’ve enjoyed the first two books in the COIL Series.
So, I’m sorry, Reader Friends. I know many of you wanted the book yesterday! Dark Rule will still be out this winter, just not quite as soon as we thought. But, we pray that it will be considered worthy to be included in The COIL Series. Thank you for understanding. We’ll keep you informed right here on our blog!
[UPDATE: Dark Rule is now available in eBook, audio, and print formats!]
Now, Dee will tell you about some other great news items below. With so much coming up, you’ll see that even a pen with no ink CAN’T hold me back! I love writing for all of you, and your letters and comments help me see that God’s people are being encouraged, even with fiction!
See you on the next page!
