Steve Martinez No. 6 off to the publisher

Yesterday I emailed off to my agent the electronic manuscript of the sixth novel in the Steve Martinez series, The Riddle of Billy Gibbs.

It begins with the discovery of a black veteran hanging from a tree in the forest, the victim of an apparent hate crime.

Yes, the novel treats the subject of racism, and it also has a subtext about chicanery in the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan. There is also a terrible winter and a violent summer storm, a church soup supper and a citizen complaint involving chocolate chip cookies. And more.

Send your best good thoughts that the publisher will like the novel and accept it for publication some time in 2016.
