    1. Ciao Shannon thank you for your comment. The answer to your question is I am writing a sequel to the willing. It will be out in the summer.
      Warren Steelgrave and Cindy are in trouble again.

  1. Loved “The Willing” and am anxious to read the sequel. Warren has a clarity of purpose and a foundation of commitment that is hard to find these days. Also enjoyed “No Remorse” and the clever twists in the plot that make me want more.

    1. Ciao Ken: The sequel, I hope will be finished my summer. Having trouble finding time to write for the story. I had a request from a movie agent wanting too see four chapters of “No Remorse”.
      I have converted the short story into book form and added a chapter and sent it to him. If he likes it he will want the whole book by summer which will delay the sequel. “The Willing”
      was released last week as an e-book and in three days was in the 19% of all romance/suspense books. It is also in production as an Audio Book.

  2. My favorite day of the San Francisco Writers Conference 2019. The gala party. After hundreds of hours of writing and for most traveling across country. Tomorrow is your chance at your dream. You have researched the literary agents and have picked the two you think might represent you and your book to the big five New York publishing houses. Tomorrow you get to sit with them and pitch your book, the kicker…….. you only get three minutes with each. Two minutes two pitch and one minute for feedback. For two days, you have taken classes on writing an affective pitch. You have stood in front of a class of forty giving you pitch and having it critiqued. I watch writers by themselves in groups of two and three practicing. The stress has been building. At the gala, the stress in the room is tremendous. Then the booze begins to flow. Tomorrow is show time
