Greeting from Tabor City! I am entering the final stages of completing the first-draft of Revenge Ticket. It's not an excessively long novel, probably coming in around 70K words. I wanted this story to be a tight page-turner full of dark, twisted suspense. I have infused this story with a certain pulp-noir character. Although the dystopian backdrop is set in the year 2067, it has the gritty nostalgic air of instead having took place in the 1960's. It's a rather strange converse but I think it works. 

This will be my second novel, and each is like one of your children. We are not suppose to have favorites when it comes to our children, but I will say that Revenge Ticket will be my favorite of the two. I have immensely enjoyed writing it. I looked forward to getting back to the computer every day to write and to see what might happen next with my protagonist Bobby Ackman. I hope the reader will have the same experience as they turn the pages, losing themselves inside this odd world I have created. And it is just that, odd! You might ask what it was that I was smoking and drinking as I wrote this novel. You can see the synopsis in the prior post below this one.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas season. When we talk again after the holidays I will reveal the cover design for Revenge Ticket. Then shortly after, it will be released, most certainly in January.

If you are a random visitor to this page, please enter your email address in the box at the top of the page and you will be notified of any updates, and given a notification when the new novel is at last released. It will be available as a paperback (distributed and sold by amazon) and as Kindle ebook. Using the free Kindle app, it can be downloaded and read on any tablet or mobile device--such as iPad, Galaxy, iPhone, Android phones, and, of course, any Kindle. It will not be sold by Barnes & Noble as I have an exclusive agreement with amazon. But I believe you can now load the Kindle reading app onto Nook devices.

Sincerely, Kevin Pickell, Tabor City, NC.
