"THE BADLINGS" IS DONE! MY 6TH BOOK IS DONE! AND I'M CRYING...
I always cry, don't know why. It feels like birthing something and letting it go and missing it, as though it became a part of me. And I guess it did. The characters, the story, it's all out of my hands now and in the hands of my editor, @araenel.
On Monday I'm taking off on my Amtrak residency and starting to write my next book. In Russian we have a saying about this, "Из огня да в полымя." It translates as "From fire to flame." It means "Getting out of trouble just to get into another trouble." And the English equivalent is, "Out of the frying pan and into the fire."
Well then. Into the fire I go.
Oh, and if you can't wait for the edited book and want to read the final draft now, here it is.
