I posted this on Facebook tonight:
Proofing Season 3 of This Plague of Days tonight, I realized something new about the book. That secret I’ve teased? Yeah, about that:
Some people are really going to HATE me for it. Fans will give me credit for the magic trick, but…wow…as I was reading along tonight I kind of finally understood the scope of the lunatic gamble. But this business, and art, isn’t for sissies.
I should also say, we’re too far along in the editorial process to add names, so the contest to discover the secret of This Plague of Days is closed. Sorry nobody got it, but thanks for playing and, as a consolation prize to take home, some lucky readers will be receiving their names in the book, anyway.
And no, I’m not telling you the secret now and no, please don’t ask for inclusion in the book. All the characters are named and I can’t create more characters to kill. The book’s already plenty long and I’ve already killed so many!
I thank you in advance for your understanding. About all of it.

I’ve recruited several new volunteers to our beta reading team and the book is coming along nicely. Shooting the manuscript over to our editorial aces in a few days. I’ll announce a firm date soonish, but you can expect the finale to This Plague of Days in early June. (And by the way, yes, that’s still spring. I checked.)
Thank you for your patience a I work furiously to deliver you a really kick-ass book. More to come, soon! Really!

It’s time for The Spoilers/No Spoilers Contest.
There is a secret in This Plague of Days. It’s not buried that deep.
No one has guessed it, but it’s right before your eyes.
If you suspect you know, DM me on Facebook or DM on Twitter (and keep the secret).
Wild speculation will be entertained, but can neither be confirmed nor denied. No spoilers to the rest of the guessers.
First prize: A nice, fat, juicy paperback of Season One of This Plague of Days. (Signed with a personal note of praise and adulation. Probably signed by me.)
For the first three winners, I’ll use your names for characters in my next book. The secret will be revealed in Season 3.
Praise and adulation will be heaped upon all those who guess correctly on the All That Chazz podcast.
Have at it!
Also, even if you’re way off, I still may incorporate your wild speculation into Season 3. I got an idea from a reader recently that I shall mold into…well, that would be be telling.
This’ll be fun, but it’s also serious. A chance at immortality hangs in the balance.
