If You're Hungry...

...grab a "Knuckle Sandwich."

Yes, draft two of "Knuckle Sandwich" is finally, finally in the can and off to the editor. He will do his thing and then I only have one more week of serious work to do on it before I can declare it complete. And what a relief that will be.

Writing a novel is such an emotional process for me, especially the second draft. The first draft is easy: you just put your head down and go. The second draft requires careful consideration of EVERY WORD. It begins to weigh on you when you realize you have 60,000-plus decisions to make.

Anyway, it's done now, and I have my 31st birthday out of the way, so I'm ready to truck on with life.

By the way, I wish I could show you the cover, but I can't. Yet. Still, it's awesome.

More to come!
