Just finished edits on the next Peter Savage novel—book #4. The working title is Hunting Savage, and the plot is set largely in and around my hometown, Bend, Oregon. Scheduled for release in April, there is still a lot of work to do as the manuscript enters what I like to refer to as the “production phase”. The cover needs to be finalized, back cover blurb drafted, interior layout completed, and final edits made.
Advance review copies should be available in December, and I plan to get some of these out to my beta readers for early feedback. If you are interested in becoming a beta readers, please contact me.
With much of the story unfolding in the Old Mill District of Bend, and the Cascade Mountains to the west of Bend, I wanted to share some photos. If you’re a fan of Peter Savage novels, you’ll know he lives and works in the old brick power house building with the three tall chimneys—captured in this aerial photo (above), also showing the Deschutes River. The photo to the right is of Broken Top, a key landmark in Hunting Savage.
From time to time, I’ll post updates and hints about the plot of Hunting Savage. The story revolves around secrets from 1967—the Six Day War—that powerful people want kept hidden, and the efforts of a foreign government to influence the U.S. Presidential election. Cheers!
