The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.


I know I’ve been remiss at posting as of late but with good reason. I’ve been finishing up the rough draft of Devil’s Ante. Originally it was slated to go to the Editor on April 20th. “Plenty of time,” I thought. Then two weeks ago, my editor contacted me and let me know he’d had a project drop out and a slot had opened up in his schedule in March. March 20th, which if you look at a calendar is this Monday.

I’m not a fast writer at the best of times but I was so close to the end I figured I could lose the four extra weeks. Heh.

So today and tomorrow, I’m finishing up the final big fight scene and the epilogue. Monday morning the MS heads to the UK for a month. After that, it goes to my beta readers. If you’d like to be on my Beta list. please email me at

Have a great weekend.

One thought on “Man at work…

  1. Good luck with your book! I know the editing and publishing process can be daunting but it will all be worth it when you’re finished.
