I wanted to share a few pics (from many) that I took while on the road in Central and Eastern Oregon researching The Other Oregon. These fit no theme and don't necessarily reflect scenes in the novel — I just like them. You might know the locations or can give it a guess. Big hint: they're revealed in the captions and include areas in or near Antelope, Prineville, Fossil, the Painted Hills, John Day, Mitchell, and Imnaha.
UPDATE, May 14: Congrats to the winners! They came from the US, Mexico, Portugal, and even the Republic of Macedonia! Happy reading, all.

The next novel is a new direction for me, and I can't be more excited about its release.
In The Other Oregon: A Thriller, an idealist from the city of Portland has to stop his estranged friend in rural Oregon from exposing a grim and damning secret from their past.
The official release is May 19. Pre-ordering is now available for the paperback version and the ebook and audiobook are coming soon. Find out more here, including pre-order links.

Expect readings to come this summer, listed on the Events page once they're booked.
The Other Oregon might be a new direction—and the last book for some time—but I'll still be writing books set in the chaos of mid-century Europe. The stories of Harry Kaspar from Liberated and his brother Max from The Losing Role will continue.
