Since leaving the dank underbelly of the demented bureaucracy, my home office has been an oasis of calm. Not since last week. The city is replacing the water main on our street and today, the work is happening right outside my home. It makes writing a challenge, but fortunately, I’m done with Black Sword (Decker’s War Book 5). The manuscript now sits in my editor’s inbox, so you Decker fans can expect an August release. Here’s what it looks like from my office window today. I bet it’s a lot calmer outside my old, downtown office, but such is life.
