I’m violating an Author Ruleā„¢ of some sort, but as I paused to admire the initial draft of Dead Shot: A Diane Pembrook Thriller I thought, “Hey, how about a sneak preview for the web site?”

Photos from the Field: November 2017 Edition

I take photos from time to time, and here are a select few.

I was too slow on the draw to get this up before the month ended, so here it is a few days later. I take photos from time to time, and here are a select few, with the intent of adding some variety to offset my usual progress updates as I write several manuscripts.
