It’s #authorlifemonth, so each day of February so far has had a post from me on my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages. I’ll be keeping with that until the end of the month. Be sure to head on over there to get another look into my wacky mind.

If you follow me on my social media pages, you’ll see that all during October, I was doing giveaways of some of my books. I apologize for the lack of posts because of that. In better news though, I will be doing a meet and greet at an author expo in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. If you’re in that area this Saturday, come on out and say hi, maybe grab a book or two and chat about fun reading things.
Hope to see some of you there!
A little collaboration I’ve been working on is finally completed. For years I’ve been wanting to do something a little different from fiction, and here it is… a collection of poetry.
Summer Rain contains generations of poems from the family of author, Rick Pipito. Over 185 writings including works by Charlene Pipito, Roberta Pipito, Tony Pipito, Lana Pipito, Anna May Prokop, and Rick Pipito. There’s something for everyone in these pages, from dark thoughts to things that will brighten your day and make you smile. Some of the works won various awards over the years.
It is available in print at: http://www.lulu.com/shop/rick-pipito/summer-rain-generations-of-poems/paperback/product-23794903.html

My wife and I had the pleasure of sitting down with a local reporter to discuss juggling our careers, parenting, and more. It’s a fun read that you can check out here: https://feastervilletrevosetimes.com/dynamic-duo-79d5ae23776d
I talk about characters, my upcoming novel THE THIRST OF CAIN, and my journey so far as an author in a new interview with Smita Singh. Bookaholicanonymous has lots of great interviews and articles so be sure to check out their other posts. Here’s the link to my interview: http://bookaholicanonymous.com/author-interview?id=40
It’s been a while since I’ve updated anyone as to the status of what I’ve been working on. I wanted to say that I’m nearing the halfway point to my next novel THE THIRST OF CAIN. This is flowing real well, and I haven’t had to alter much of the outline I had created for it.
I’m going deep into some historical things that make it much more grounded than the prior novel. My character Francis Murphy is really struggling with who he’s become, and it makes for a great story of inner turmoil. Will he turn out to be a mass murdering monster or will he rid himself and countless others of the disease he carries? You’ll just have to wait until the Spring to find out!
In other news, I have also begun laying out CONSUMED BY WAR for a Fall release. My brother Dan will be working on cover art for both of these, and I think you’ll like what we’ve got in mind. Thanks for the continued support, and stay tuned.
I may have graduated high school in what may seem like to some years ago (Class of 1996), but I’m honored to still be acknowledged. Archbishop Wood in Warminster, Pennsylvania has an annual alumni magazine. I am fortunate enough to have been asked to write an article for this year’s release, and it’s finally in print. Here’s a still grab for those who aren’t alumni to read. Enjoy, and much success to you all!
