With the research and writing complete on my book Coffeehouse Jazz, I have already started looking ahead to adding more to the mix. Mind you, It’s not published… heck, it’s not even edited just yet.

Still, this list of 101 of the greatest instrumental jazz songs has seemingly only scratched the surface on the topic. With that in mind, I’m looking at my writing schedule and thinking I can have the second (Second Cup: More Coffeehouse Jazz) and third editions (Coffee to Go: Still More Coffeehouse Jazz) out in 2015.

A trilogy seems perfect and should close out the topic nicely. Look forward to the sequels in 2015, but first up with be the original which should be out in late October/early November.

I also just wrote about my forthcoming short story Bigfoot vs. Paul Bunyan. Last week, I wrote I had about a weekend’s worth of work on it to complete it and hoped to have it done by today. I think my assessment of timing was about right ,but I had a pretty busy weekend. I dedicated about 1/2 a weekend to it so I’m pretty close. I’m thinking next weekend is when I will get it done. This should result in this piece being published about the same time Coffeehouse Jazz is. out there

Exciting stuff!

Then again I’ve found everything associated with my writing is pretty exciting!


Write Steve Write Returns Next Week

Wow, my books are now officially out there:

Small Brand America III, Special Hawaii Edition

After the rigors of publishing two books the same week I took some much needed time off from posting updates and doing anything but promoting the books. 

I’ve got tons of big news going on with my writing. Lots of updates to share next week.
