Some of you may have seen my FB post yesterday about the last Hollows short, Sudden Backtrack, popping up for pre-order. Really quick, it is a short story scheduled to be released 10/28, and it will be available across all devices, including your laptop if you download the right app. DON’T read it until after reading The Witch With No Name. You’re going to want Al to have the last word, too.
Did I expect this? No! I finished the last chapter of WWNN, did the copy edit, line edit–happy with Rachel bringing together the thoughts and emotions that I wanted the story to end with. And when I thought I was done, the file closed and tucked away, Al taps me on the shoulder and tells me that I’ve got to become brave and put the last bit of story out there, that I can’t be selfish and keep it to myself as I sometimes do. (And yes, I sometimes keep parts of the story just for myself.)
And so Sudden Backtrack evolved. It’s not a lot of pages, but it does answer why.

Today I’m prepping to hit the road again with clean socks and new batteries in the bunny cam. Guy and I are headed west of the Mississippi for the week. Hope to see some of you on tour, and bring your tomatoes! I’ll be signing with Richard Kadrey at the first four stops, and finishing up at George RR Martin’s theater in Santa Fe.
