"Cardiac Arrest" Pushed Back; Prologue of Its Sequel Complete

The final chapters of my science-fiction/fantasy novel, "Cardiac Arrest", have required extensive tweaking that will postpone the completion of the novel until September.  I've completed the prologue for the second book in the trilogy, which will be called "The Mask of Beelzebub".  I'm smoothing out the end of "Cardiac Arrest" so that it will flow seamlessly into the beginning of "Beelzebub".  Plot twists and a cliffhanger will be incorporated into the closing chapters of "Cardiac Arrest" to generate interest in "Beelzebub" and the last book of the trilogy, which will be called "Sarcophagus".

Short Story Collection Underway

As work on my novel, "Cardiac Arrest", comes to an end, I'm planning to construct a short story collection, which is untitled at this time.  I will blend new, unpublished work with previous stories.  I hope to have the collection finished and ready to submit by the end of December 2011.
