I’ve been meaning to write this post since last night, but I’ve been so busy these past 24 hours it hasn’t been possible. I guess that’s to be expected at Ohio State, especially when low temperatures close school for two days in a row. Well, no time like the present, so let’s get started.

Yesterday my friend and fellow author Angela Misri sent me her thoughts and suggestions for Chapters 73-76 of Snake. And after doing some extensive editing work (those chapters needed a lot of work, as I realized from reading Angela’s comments), I realized that we had gotten three-fourths of the way through the entire book. And of course that means we have less than twenty-five chapters left of the book before I can get it ready for publication.

Working withy Angela has been a delight. Her suggestions always hit the mark or point out potential areas of misunderstandings for readers that I, as the author, have missed. Sometimes her suggestions have frustrated me because they involve a lot of rewriting, but always I’m thankful for them because in the end she’s right and all the work is worth it. And now with only a quarter of the novel left, I’m looking forward to hearing her thoughts on it over the next couple of weeks and getting her final review once she’s finished the entire book. And as a thank you for all her hard work, I’ll be interviewing Angela about her own upcoming book, Jewel of the Thames, to be released sometime this spring. I can’t wait to read it Angela.

And as for Snake…well, I’m looking forward to releasing it to the world. It’s one of my favorite stories that I’ve written so far and the characters are rather dear to me. I even have plans for one or two sequels, and I hope that everyone who picks up a copy not only enjoys the book, but lets others with similar interests know that they enjoyed the novel.

For now though, I’ve got some work to do, so I’ll sign off for now. If I’m lucky I’ll be able to do a post later tonight, so keep checking your readers and inboxes. And if I don’t get to write another post, I’ll write it tomorrow. See you later, Followers of Fear.
