Hey everyone, just a quick note to say happy new year!
After a great vacay, I’m energized and ready to get my body and mind back in shape, which, as cliche’ as that sounds, is going well. More than that, however, I feel a renewed creative energy and am working on new John Pilate (and non JP) stuff for you this year.
Want to learn more? Make sure you are a subscriber to Mysterious Goings On, my podcast. You’ll get plenty of updates there. We should have 1-2 episodes a month this year.
Want to encourage me a bit? How about posting reviews for my books on Amazon? It’s quick, painless and really boosts my energy to write more. (Same for the podcast—reviews help.)
So, how about you? What’s going in your world? Let me know in the comments!
Talk soon…keep reading.

The Mysterious Goings On podcast returns with a spirited and often poignant discussion with editor and writer Robert Hayes, Jr., author of Stay Out of Prison: A Practical Guide to Avoiding Incarceration.

Robert has also spent time in some of Colorado's finest Graybar Hotels for bank robbery. He tells Alex why you should never use a gun in a robbery and most importantly how and what he is doing to stay out of prison.
Robert edited Alex's acclaimed novel Pilate's Blood and the award-winning short story compilation Pilate's 7 and is editor of the upcoming Big Cabin and Dispatches from the West by Robert E. Trevathan.

On this episode of the Mysterious Goings On podcast, Alex talks about inspiration he drew from attending a Sting/Peter Gabriel concert recently. Specifically, he discusses ways that getting our "monkey" shocked (as Peter Gabriel's hit "Shock the Monkey" illustrates) in real life can be dangerous, but perhaps can be useful in your writing.

Fans of the podcast have no doubt noted we took a little break from production after our first 15 chapters (episodes) of Mysterious Goings On. This was due mostly to stuff you would file under "life" and "am writing". I hope you will stay subscribed (what? you're not subscribed? HURRY and click here!) and that way you'll get an automatic download of the next chapter.
When will that be? Well...some things must remain a mystery...
In the meantime, I am writing and will be back to podcasting as soon as I can. (You'll hear from me soon!) Thanks for reading...and listening.
