Fall – My New Beginning!

Fall has always felt like the beginning of a new year to me, and this year is no exception.

Although the calendar year officially begins anew in a little over three months (yikes), September has always felt like the beginning of a new year for me.

When I was a child, an adolescent, and then a teen, September was the beginning of my school year and a time to set new goals and priorities, and a time to settle into new routines and habits as the months moved along into late fall and then early winter.

As an adult, September seemed to be the time when I started a new job or accepted a promotion. After I became a certified running coach, fall was the time when new training programs started as the weather turned cooler.

This September, I’m again embarking on a new venture. The novel I’ve been working on—on and off again, actually—for most of the year is my fifth to be published. The initial draft is now complete, and my first editor has finished her initial review. The numerous red marks on the pages tell me that the real work is about to begin. 

Many seem to think that writing the first draft of a novel is hard work. That’s true in a sense, but the initial draft can sometimes barely resemble a finished novel. That initial draft is when the author’s thoughts—disjointed or otherwise—spin together into a workable plot. That story becomes a work of art and represents a marketable book when the author tweaks the chapters page by page, paragraph by paragraph, and line by line. 

That is the task at hand for me this fall. The working title for this novel is Pink Oleander, and it’s the third book in my Detective Rosie Young thriller series.

To celebrate my new adventure, I’m offering all four of my previously published novels at a special fall price of 99¢ for a limited time on Amazon, and all four are now available on Kindle Unlimited. 

Help me celebrate my new beginning this fall by giving one of my books a read—and a quick written review, please, if you would be so inclined.

About James J. Murray, Fiction Writer

With experience in both pharmaceutical manufacturing and clinical patient management, medications and their impact on one’s quality of life have been my expertise. My secret passion of murder and mayhem, however, is a whole other matter. I’ve always loved reading murder mysteries and thrillers, and longed to weave such tales of my own. Drawing on my clinical expertise as a pharmacist and my infatuation with the lethal effects of drugs, my tales of murder, mayhem and medicine will have you looking over your shoulder and suspicious of anything in your medicine cabinet.
