Two Down ? To Go

I finished the second draft for my second novel last Friday. I've actually been finished with the first draft for a while, but I hand write all my first drafts, so I had to type it up/edit simultaneously.

The Tower Quail is about a young girl who unwittingly goes through something I call a "time bounce". The time bounce allows her to look into the past and future and subsequently leaves her with haunting visions of events she largely has no control over. It's something of a departure form my last book, but I'm really excited about it!

Once Rachel looks it over, I'm going to send it through my editing mill and then I'll send it to all you guys. By then, it'll be ready for submission, but I'll continue to refine it even then.

I plan to keep writing books. I have started about 3 others and have at least 10 other ideas, but I might slough off some along the way as some are better than others. It's fun and rewarding. Maybe it'l go somewhere. Who knows?

In any case, I just wanted to pass on the good news.

Keep up the hard work Sipper.

It might not pay off in cash but it will pay off in satisfaction. I hope you sell everything you submit and become a respected writer someday but that’s just so I can bask in the wake of your glory and should the need arise become part of your posse.

There are not too many literary posses but perhaps you could change all that.

I'd love to lead a literary posse. I think Walt Whitman did that once...

I want a copy...please. I love sci-fi. That's mostly what I read.
