On a trip to Savannah, Georgia this weekend to visit friends, I took along David Mitchell's The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet.
I've been quite impressed by the prose, the character development, and the level setting detail.
Reading this book and looking into Mr. Mitchell's career, I'm considering a different approach to the ongoing work on Eolian Dunes.
I need to let those potentialities wander about my dreamspace for a time before setting out on a proper adventure, though.

Alongside a dozen local writers, I read from Sound of Stone on October 28, 2018.

2018 has been a good year of writing.
Rise to the Rahz came out in May. Followed closely by Sound of Stone in September. The feedback has been solid on both. Start with RttR if you're new to the Known Caverns.
Next up is Eolian Dunes. I'm planning to submit to agents in early 2019.
Also, you may have noticed a CRISPY new website. All this is thanks to Eric Buisson, who was also the cover designer and cover illustrator for both Rise to the Rahz and Sound of Stone. I expect we will continue collaborating. It is fun to find people I enjoy working with and who take amazing ownership/creativity in their work.
