I have great news to share with my readers and fellow writers taking part in National Novel Writing Month - or NaNoWriMo - I have reached 50k words and completed the first draft of the *NEW* Preface to a Suicide.
To finish the first draft in only 17 days is an accomplishment I will savor. Yes, there is a lot of work to be done to transform this draft into a published novel - but, it all start with this, the first draft. You can't publish a book without this step being completed.
This novel is a complete revision of the novel I wrote during my 20's. There are truly almost no scenes the two drafts have in common - and other than the basic framework of time and place - very few details appear in both books. Faced with the problem of publishing Ella 'out of turn' when it's not first chronologically presented a lot of obstacles. Re-writing Preface to match the 'facts' of Ella now realigns the 'fictional world' and readies the rest of the books for a similar re-write and revision.
The next books to be written in no particular order will be:
The Butcher of Vegas
I thank my readers for patience in waiting for the next book after Ella. I know it's been a year now and can finally say - SOON there will be another book.
That book will be Preface to a Suicide.
From Las Vegas,
