Yes, I published another one within a month of its companion book. The Baby Werewolf is the other part of the story from Recipes for Gingerbread Children. I hold the first copy in my hands today. It is my 8th published novel that I am actually proud of having written.

My latest book is now for sale on Amazon. Here’s the paperback link. https://www.amazon.com/Baby-Werewolf-Michael-Beyer/dp/1791895379/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1545236655&sr=8-2&keywords=michael+beyer+books+the+baby+werewolf
Its companion book is this one, Recipes for Gingerbread Children. The two books happen at the same time with the same characters and events. But it comes to the story from different viewpoints and weaves different portraits of what happened.
Here is the link for this companion book. https://www.amazon.com/Recipes-Gingerbread-Children-Michael-Beyer/dp/1790129915/ref=sr_1_1_twi_pap_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1545237129&sr=8-1&keywords=michael+beyer+books+recipes+for+gingerbread+children
The Kindle e-book version is cheap, costing only $1.50. It’s even free to read if you subscribe to Amazon Prime.
I finished another rough draft novel last night. And when I say rough draft, I really mean I have pieced it together at a rate of about 500 words a night, about two nights per Canto (What Mickey inexplicably calls a chapter), with revisions and editing already complete. Of course, there is no such thing as a final draft. The majority of my novels have been plotted and planned and created over the last 40 years of my life. I will continue twiddling, correcting, and messing with all of my novels until I drop dead. But this draft I just finished is actually 95% finished and almost ready for publication. The books I have lined up now for a final effort are Recipes for Gingerbread Children, The Baby Werewolf, and finally including Sing Sad Songs. Look for all three of them soon.
I have published yet another book.
This book is now available on Amazon as both a paperback and as a Kindle e-book.
It is a story that I have lived with for a very long time.
It is about friendship.
It is about the challenges of friendship.
It is about friendship surviving over time even when bizarre circumstances try to get in the way.
It’s main character is a scientist/inventor, and he’s laser-focused on science, but a bit lost in the world of people. So it is also about science and technology, both the good things and the terrible things about them.
It is also, hopefully, a funny story. One of the main characters, Millis, is a pet rabbit that in a lab accident is transformed into a walking, talking rabbit-man. He proves to be a loyal friend and a very good vegetarian chef.
Now I know you might argue that rabbits shouldn’t become people. That is probably a very bad idea for a serious science fiction story. But I would argue right back that this is intended to be a humorous story, the opposite of a serious science fiction story. So it is not science fiction, but, rather, science funny.
And good science fiction probably shouldn’t have too many evil alien robots in it… or man-eating chinchillas, or self-aware computers, or ray guns that can change girls into boys and boys into girls, or invading alien frog people from another star system… and this book has all that. So don’t think of it as good science fiction. Think of it as good science funny.
Those of you who are the guardians of literature and culture in this world, before you condemn and burn this book, buy a copy and read it, to see how bad the thing you hate really is. And I hope that you will then be so outraged that you buy up a million copies of it to burn in a huge bonfire to protest the existence of this book. In fact, buy two million copies. Wouldn’t that make a marvelous book burning? Book burners everywhere would talk about it for years to come. Just saying…
Anyway, the deed is done. And now let the consequences happen however they will.
I published another danged novel on Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing.
