Dear Readers and Fans,
Thanks for coming along on this wondrous ride. Without you, the writing would not be the same.
I’ve heard from many of you, and without exception, your words are very encouraging. Numerous e-mails and phone calls from you have offered thoughts and questions about the stories and the characters. I expect some of the details from our correspondence will ultimately make its way into future books. For that, I thank you. Keep an eye out as you read; you may recognize something we’ve discussed.
My new novel, Letter From the Dark, is now available for your enjoyment. Several of the characters from A Letter to Die For are in this new story – others are not. Don’t despair. As new tales develop, many of your old friends (and some of your old enemies) may make new appearances. And ladies, if Webster should survive New Orleans and other ordeals, someone may already have her sights set on him. But who knows what may happen next. Perhaps there are other women in his future who will find him appealing, too.
Now, to a new subject – the Joe Shumock, Author – The Fan Club.
“We’ve started a fan club to have some fun with this writing thing. There will be contests and other interesting events (like Rage Doyle sightings), book club meetings with readings, book signings, and some special discounts for club members. We are working on some fun possibilities, but it’s my guess is that many of you will have great ideas, too. Let us know what they are and help us put it all together. If you would like to lend a helping hand, please send us an email.
If you would consider helping in the area where you live, let us know.
Contact Joe at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to get announcements about coming events, special Fan Club get to-gethers, lectures, booksignings, and of course special discount coupons for members. Please sign up here: The Fan Club
FYI – I am working on book number Four, Ana’s Letter.
One last item – As promised, I am writing character blogs giving you some history and other particulars about our friends from the stories (and maybe some of our enemies). Haven’t you wondered about Webster’s or Landie’s past, or Rage Doyle’s history? If so, press the Blog button on this site and enjoy! Keep coming back – I’ll be adding new information on a continuing basis.
Again, thanks for caring about the stories, characters, and my work.
