The following is a conversation I had recently with Detective Sergeant Summer Hayes about the next installment of the Detective Clay Randall Thriller Series:

BT: Hey, Summer. How’s it going?
SH: You know, busy working cases. What’s up?
BT: Occasionally, readers ask me about the characters in the books, so I thought I’d give you an opportunity to share something about yourself.
SH: Like what?
BT: Okay, here’s a question Jackie asked me. Why is your hair dark brown instead of blond with a name like Summer?
SH: You’re kidding, right? You’re asking me why my hair is this color? I don’t recall you ever asking any other character what color they wanted theirs to be.
BT: Well, sure. That’s true. I guess I just never thought about it. But since Jackie raised the question, I’ll ask you now. What color would you prefer?
SH: How about mermaid hair?
BT: What the heck is mermaid hair?
SH: Wow, where have you been hiding? It’s the newest trend to color your hair in shades of red, blue, green. Basically all sorts of combinations.
BT: I’m trying to think of a word for this that won’t make me sound like . . . I don’t know, old?
BT: It’s not polite to roll your eyes at the author.
SH: Whatever.
BT: Okay, moving on. I’ve had people asking me when the next novel is coming out, so would you like to give everyone an update on the progress?
SH: Did you hear my eyes roll again? I mean . . . really? Look in the mirror, Mr. Author. You’re in charge of that stuff. Me? I’m just trying to keep my head above water . . . oh, wait, does that give something away?
BT: Um, I think it’s okay. At least where you’re concerned. Let’s move on. Nothing to see here. By the way, How’s Clay doing?
BT: Yo, I asked how Clay was doing.
BT: Hello! You still there?
SH: Look, I don’t want to talk about Clay. It’s . . . It’s . . . I gotta go.
BT: Summer?
BT: I guess she had to go investigate a crime. More to come.

Keep You Enthralled

Perception of Power by Bruce Thomason. Great book. It  will keep you enthralled from the first page.  I couldn’t put it down. Can’t wait to read Clay’s next adventure.
