THE CATALYST Update – November 20

Editing and proofreading are behind us. I’d have a celebratory drink right now if I wasn’t headed to bed. I guess I shouldn’t really say proofreading is behind us, since the final, agonizing proofread of formatted paperback and two ebook formats is coming very soon.

The end of 2016 is near but I’m not worried. This book will be published this year. Yes. Yes it will. Do I sound convincing?

THE CATALYST Update – July 24

I’ve just started the second to last chapter in THE CATALYST. This will probably be the last update before the final draft is complete. A lot of scenes need to be fleshed out, especially the ones in the last few chapters. In order to overcome my fear of writing the end I stopped taking the time to write my best and just started pounding it out. The progress has been great: 12,383 words since my last update. In those 12,383 I wrote a scene that’s going to make all of Christian’s fans weep. Sad tears? Happy tears? Hmm. And I’m pleased to report I did not weep while writing it.
