The next Sheriff Dan Rhodes novel, A Mammoth Murder, will be out next March. Yesterday I signed and mailed a contract for two more (untitled) books in the Sheriff Dan Rhodes series. If all goes as planned, this means that there will be Rhodes books in 2007 and 2008. After 2008, however, all bets are off. The sheriff and I will be pretty old guys by then, and readers might be tired of us. Publishers might be tired of us, too. So I'm not going to look that far ahead. I'll just try to get these two books done and see what happens.
