"... the end."
I was going to put the first 3,000 or so words up this morning, but as I read through them I realised they just didn't work. It would have worked in a TV show or a movie, with the credits rolling in the front of the screen, but for a book? No.
I've spent the day rewriting them, and think Ive come up with a sequence that works, but after a day of staring at the screen (and drinking all the coffee in London) I think it prudent to take a fresh look at them tomorrow before submitting them for the world to see.
As for the book itself, it will be published soon, and as for exactly when, well, all I can say is that all the words are there, they're just not quite in the right order. But they will be soon.
