Put a laugh in Christmas

Here's a little holiday gift for my readers: I've put the ebook of SANITY CLAUSE on sale for only 99 cents through December.

SANITY CLAUSE is a hilarious novella starring inept private eye Bubba Mabry and his wife Felicia. Cash-strapped Bubba takes a job at a local shopping mall, where one of the mall Santas ends up murdered. It's up to Bubba to make Christmas merry again.

SANITY CLAUSE is the eighth story in the Bubba Mabry series. The ninth and most recent Bubba book is another novella, PARTY DOLL.

It's been a busy December, as usual. In addition to the usual holiday madness, I agreed to serve on the board of directors of SouthWest Writers for the next year. I've been on boards before -- Mystery Writers of America, NorCal Writers Forum -- but I apparently never learn my lesson.

I speak at SouthWest Writers events quite often, and they've asked me to teach a class on Jan. 2, after the regular SWW meeting. I'll speak on Adding Humor to Your Writing. Details here. I'm also teaching my Become a Better Writer course at the University of New Mexico again, starting in mid-January. The class is full!

Amid all this busyness, I'm doing the revisions on my latest novel, the second starring a woman named Jackie Nolan, who gets in trouble for boosting semi trucks. My agent is shopping the first book around now, but no word yet on when the books will be published. I'll keep you posted.

Happy holiday season to you and yours!

Hi Steve,
Glad your doing the class again. Can I come and sit in lectures by authors again?
If so, where can I get a list of books to read?
My News- I have an agent!
Will there be a SWW meeting at Aux Dog this month.
