Fall Novella

Alright, guys.  Even though I am finishing up the final draft of Monsoon Morning, that doesn’t mean that I’ve been sitting around and ignoring my projects.  I’m currently enrolled in a fall workshop where I’m hammering away at a novella that serves as an introduction to the lead character in Monsoon.  The novella is called The Runaway Train, and I will be presenting it to all of you for free!  You like free stuff, right?  Sure ya’ do.  

And The Stars Go With You

JesseJamesAvatar-1Well, a ship is about to set sail in my book.  Every event from here on out leads to the end, and everything comes full circle.  Of course, there is an emotional twist in the end, and I don’t mean one of those endings where you’re like “Oh, I should have seen that,” no, it’s more like when the killer stands up in the middle of the room in the original Saw.

In answer to one of your questions, no, I will not be sending the book off this Christmas.  It’s not just that it’s a horrible time to submit, but there are several things that have to be done first.  Chapter 26 needs a rewrite.  I still have to find someone to edit the entire novel, and the dreaded Library of Congress send out that takes entirely too long if you ask me.  The book will be done by Christmas, but a whole lot of work will begin.  I’m aiming for around the end of Spring for submissions.

Ah, I will miss these characters.
