I've been really active on the sequel to D&DFR (Dead & Dead For Real). I have 30,000 words on the first draft and I figure I'm about half through. What's different about this book is it leads us into how we get to a dystopian society, Well almost. I haven't decided whether the world will descend into that or not. My leanings now are to have the world end up skirting dystopia with semblance of modern civilization surviving. That may change as I get into the second half of the book.
Still on hiatus from news and politics. My mind is so peaceful, not worrying about things I have absolutely no influence over.
