    I’m certainly looking forward to this one, but years and years of hope and patience are lumbering dejectedly into skepticism at this point. Then again, if McCammon can come back from retirement better than ever, then anything’s possible. Keep hope alive!

Let me see how things are going this month, and I will report back!

    Brian,

    What was the result of your request for an update?

    I'm trying a new approach. Instead of waiting until right before All Hallow's Eve, I'm asking at the start of summer. Maybe that way we can get it in time for the holiday season.

    By my math, that works out to less than 1000 words per month, so hopefully he’s had a chance to wrap this one up. Sure hope so, It’s been so long since I’ve had a chance to read new work from an author who was one of my favorites back in the day.

    There's no way I'd ever ask for a refund now. It's a test of will for me (especially since I usually fail the test of character). I'll try to not whine again until next September.

    Alrighty, here we are a year later. Can we have our annual update on this sucker?

    Ahhh, I remember back in the day when I was super excited about this cursed tome.

    I loved Dark Harvest and Johnny Halloween. Looking forward to this one and I have no issue waiting, it is the third oldest order on my waitlist. I trust that if it gets cancelled CD will issue a refund as soon as they know.

    He's still alive and occasionally working on this book, I know that much. If you'd like a refund at this point, it's NO problem. Just email Mindy at order@cemeterydance.com and she'll take care of you. We'd certainly understand! It's a very long time to have faith and patience that the book will eventually happen. Sorry about the wait!

    Well, now I'm really worried.

    The last time Partridge posted to his Facebook page was 2012.

    The last time he posted to his blog page, was 2014.

    When one attempts to go to the author's website (which is linked on Facebook and the blog), normanpartridge.com, one finds a landscaping business.

    Either he isn't writing any longer or he lost the rights to his website. Neither is very encouraging.

    So, what is going on for this author? He seems to have fallen off the digital map.

    It's been nearly a year since we received an update.

    I'm guessing it's going to be another disappointing Halloween.

    Sigh.

    (I'm really trying to work it here!)
