Flashback, coming soon!

Well, soon is a relative term. Flashback is scheduled for release June 21, so I still have to wait for a couple of months, but compared to how long I've worked on the book, it feels like soon.

I wrote the first words on it in 2009, and from that point it has alternated between a frenzy of writing and waiting dormant in the computer.

The story is set just before the US entered Afghanistan, and the main character is a former prisoner of war. He is back safely in America, but can't quite shake the Middle East and everything that happened to him. He suffers horrifying flashbacks of torture and violence, and isolates himself from the world. He'll meet a girl, of course, but the way back to life certainly won't be easy.

My editor and I just finished the first round of edits, and I'm eager to get her new edits back. She's fantastic, and helps me give the manuscript just the right pacing in a way I never would have managed on my own.

I'm excited! I'll get back to you with some excerpts when the release date comes really close. =)
