Writing a Book

Regular readers of this blog may have noticed a drop in the frequency of postings. I've gone from about two posts a day to barely one every other day. Apologies. I promise I have a good excuse.

You see, I am writing a book and it has been sucking up all my attention.

I've written about 50,000 words so far; When all is said and done the book will likely be in the 250-300 page range. The outline of my story is pretty much done and now I am filling in some of the plot holes and working out the grammar. I hope to have it ready for publishing by next month.

If you enjoy reading the Saipan Blog, you'll probably enjoy reading my book. And in case you were wondering, the first working title was "Letters," but that won't be the final name.

As I get closer to publishing expect me to write about the publishing process. I may also send out a sample chapter or two - to the Under the Pala Pala list - so you need to sign up.
