I finished the first draft of the new novel today. This is a crime novel with a bit of the paranormal thrown in. Not scary, but more of a thriller. I have been working on this book for more than six years, so when I say it’s done, you have to imagine me doing some kind of happy dance. Right now the plan is to put it away for a while, at least until after the holidays, before I start revising and editing. This will allow me to put some distance between the story and myself.
In the meantime, I hope to start outlining the next idea I’ve got in mind, which is an out and out horror novel. I’m really looking forward to that one. I haven’t tried to write horror since high school, so this should be fun.
Reading night at the Dawson Springs Library went well, and I enjoyed connecting with a few of my readers and signing some books. Let’s hope we get to do it again really soon!
On the Brock Ford front, Brian is now working on the third and final cover for the completed books in the series. Once this is done he will begin the interior illustrations for the chapter headers. He has been great to work with, and I’m hoping this is the beginning of a long partnership.
Have a great Thanksgiving, everyone!
