I’m writing this on Memorial Day. For me, this is always a time for reflection. It’s necessary to look back occasionally. I try not to live in the past, but you don’t know where you’re going if you don’t know where you’ve been.

I got my second Covid shot almost three weeks ago. My husband and I are now fully vaccinated. We both got our second shots in the parking lot of the Tony Berger Center, which is a giant facility. It was drive-thru vaccinations and the level of organization was outstanding!

It always amazes me what we can do when we work together. Shame on those people who do nothing but divide us! And double-shame on those who don’t feel free unless they can take away other people’s freedom!!

And while I’m on my soapbox, triple-shame on those who restrict voting and undermine elections!!! Voting is the only way We the People have any say over how things are run. If that’s taken away, what do we have left?

All right, rant over. I’ll be publishing My Brother’s Boyfriend on July 1. You can read a short story and a sample from the book right now.

I’ve usually been publishing one book per month. I’m going to be slowing that down for a while so I can finish Jack Hammer: Dick Diamond, my latest gay romantic thriller starring hard-boiled gay private investigator Jack Hammer. I’m not a very fast writer and the Jack Hammer books are a lot longer and much more complicated to write than my usual books. Dick Diamond has been on hold for way too long and I need to finish it.

If you can’t wait to experience the Jack Hammer books mixture of hard-core gay sex and hard-boiled noir, Jack Hammer: King’s Ransom is available now.

As you can see from the Ken James Fiction Home page, I have lots more books in the pipeline. They’ll be coming soon.
