    1. uh-huh.

      Done, but with complications and ripples.

    2. Nope. When you're finally satisfied with the story and it's already been edited, it's not sign of a delay, but of progress. I'm not going to promise a submission date, but I mean to have this done in 2016. We'll see. I have learned my craft on this baby, and it has been very hard. I have cut entire chapters of my very best writing. Next novel will be 6 mos. tops. But Bear's Lent! Oh my! The calendar is merciless.

Your comment will likely be posted after the Bear snuffles it. Please, no anonymous posts.
