It's on the way!

Tracking the Beast, the fifth Steve Martinez novel, is now officially in the hopper at Five Star Mysteries. The contracts arrived today and immediately were signed and returned. A publication date has not yet been set, but I expect it will be sometime next spring.

Next on the agenda is a reading by the developmental editor to ferret out impossibilities and inconsistencies, then a thorough combing and shaking out by a copy editor. Meanwhile, an artist will be designing a jacket for the hardcover.

And now to return to the manuscript of the sixth novel, as yet untitled and about two-thirds done.
