The way things are going, I'm not at all sure there'll be a #19 in the series. Sales aren't increasing (some of you must not be buying), but at least they're holding their own. That might not be good enough for another sale, but if it's not, I won't be too sad. When I wrote the first book all those years ago, I never thought I'd still be writing about the sheriff. Heck, I never thought I'd sell a second book. As it turned out, I've sold dozens, under my own name and many others, so I've had a much better run than I ever dreamed of.
I even have a couple of other things going on, so there might be some other books if things work out. And assuming I'm not too lazy to write them. There's always that possibility. I'm getting lazier every day. Old age, I guess. It's a good thing the sheriff doesn't age. If he did, he'd be too lazy to solve all those crimes in Blacklin County.
