An update on my book, The Plan

The Plan is about to go to the editor. Yea! I’ve been working eight hour days to get the final chapters completed. The wonderful thing about digital publishing is that readers don’t have to wait for a year or more to get a book in their hands.

Important News: The Writers in Transition (WIT) group is giving our  monthly reading and you are invited. It’s free at the California Kitchen in Cuenca. I’ll be presenting Chapter 2 of The Plan, so I really look forward to your presence. Here’s more information:

Plenty, believe me. So I’ve needed a little extra time to make updates.
