another marathon is over

And the manuscript for Much Ado in Montana is finished.  All 71,850 words of it, which took me ninety days to revise from a ten-year-old manuscript of ~45,000 words.  If you’d like to see what it’s about, click on the title link.

I have contracted with a cover designer (the first time I’ve done this, and so far it’s an interesting process), to see if a non-homemade cover will make a difference in my sales, and contacted the copy editor who did such a good job on Finding Home (except for a problem with quotation marks, which was entirely my fault).  Hopefully she’ll be able to take this book on for me, too.

The goal is to get it up for sale by the end of March.

Next it’s on to a new project I’ve been looking forward to for some time now.  Good times.
