The first draft of my sec­ond nov­el is done.

If The Noth­ing With­in was rur­al-dystopi­an post-apoc­a­lyp­tic fan­ta­sy-like sci­ence fic­tion, this new sto­ry is Mid­west­ern mys­tery-like sci­ence fic­tion with a dash of hard­boiled metaphysics.

The sto­ry con­cerns a Har­mo­ny “Bibi” Cain, a retired detec­tive and secret empath who’s reluc­tant­ly drawn into one last case.

Over the last few years, a lot of peo­ple have been think­ing about polarization’s rise and empathy’s decline. This book is what hap­pened when I thought about that.

Right now the manuscript’s with my first round of awe­some beta read­ers. After that, it’ll go to my awe­some edi­tor, and then to more equal­ly-awe­some beta read­ers. That means it’ll be a while before the book is available—but I’ll kick it out of the house as soon as I rea­son­ably can.

The web­site does­n’t say much yet, but I’m link­ing to it here because that’s what web­sites are for.
