Now that the 2016-2017 season has concluded, it's time to remind my readers that this is a seasonal blog. While I may be posting a handful of articles over the summer months - most of them to do with art exhibits I've seen - this blog will be largely inactive until late September.
I intend to devote the summer months to finishing my fourth novel, The Blue Hours, the first draft of which I completed last year. Summer seems the best time, principally because there are so few distractions, to lose myself in a fictional world deeply enough to make the experience believable to both myself and those who read my work. This particular book is a noir thriller, a tribute to Cornell Woolrich who invented the genre.
During the summer months, I also intend to post one street photograph each day on my other blog, City of Strangers. While I'm not a musician and have at best a limited knowledge of the repertoire, I am - if I do say so myself - a highly competent photographer. I hope some of you will take the time to check out my work.
Wishing everyone a great summer!
