Rock Bound is Finished!

Rock Bound is finally finished! Phew! It topped out at 63,935 words, or 256 pages. I’m really excited about it, and prejudiced though I may be, I believe it’s a really good book and that it will do well when it comes out.

I’m sure some of you have been wondering what happened to it, and whether I had dropped off the face of the Earth. Well, the most important aspect of writing is re-writing, and that’s what I’ve been doing. Rock Bound started out as a twelve-part serial, less than thirty thousand words, total. So, I’ve been tweaking here, adding there—tightening up the story, addressing some issues my first editor brought up, and turning the book into a full-sized, full-fledged page turner.

Now comes the hardest part of all—selling the book. Anyone know a good agent? Or a publisher who is willing to help out first-time authors? If so, please let me know.

Feel free to join my Yahoo group for further updates—such as contract signing, galley-proofing, and the release date! Stay in touch and I’ll keep you posted. And, finally, thanks for your support.
