After a few starts and restarts, work is under way on Book 3 of Cigars and Legs. It is as of yet untitled.
There was going to be a different book between 2 and 3, but I did not feel that it was going to be interesting enough to finish writing, let alone asking people to read it.
Book 3 will pretty much be the close of the 1950s in the stories; I have some ideas in the 60s after that, but it’s very likely I’ll skip ahead about forty years.
I’ve abandoned the third-person re-writes I was working on. While I felt it was going to let me develop more stuff with Ron “off screen”, it felt… wrong writing the series that way. The series is meant to be first person, Ron re-telling what happened.
