With the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday rapidly approaching (it’s Thursday, for those of you living abroad or domestic but lacking a calendar…) I have much to be thankful for this year:
I’m thrilled to announce that I just signed a two-book contract for the seventh and eighth Hiro Hattori mystery novels, which will publish in 2019 and 2020.
The sixth Hiro Hattori novel, Trial on Mount Kōya, is now finished–and scheduled for release by Seventh Street Books in July 2018. I completed the final edits this morning, and will be delivering the manuscript to my publisher before Thanksgiving Day! (Cause for celebration, indeed!)
I’m traveling to Japan next month (December 2017) to do some preliminary work on a BIG SURPRISE that I hope to reveal in January – along with the launch of my Ninja Newsletter (you can find the signup information on this website) that will include sneak peeks, special surprises, and periodic updates. I don’t plan to send it often, but when I do, it will be worth the read!
My family is here for Thanksgiving, so blogging will be light until next Monday, but stay tuned – I have a bunch of really cool surprises to share this winter!
Are you celebrating Thanksgiving? Whether the answer is yes or no: what are you thankful for this week?
