…in chronological order. And it was harder than it looked, too. I’m never writing a book in that fashion again: I had to disentangle two different plot threads that flatly contradicted each other. I think it may have been because this time I didn’t have an existing story to turn into a novel, which is a mistake I will not be repeating this November*.
Now comes the fun part: shoving all the crap out of my head and onto the page, then making it into something else besides crap. Poor Tom Vargas. Now that I know he can take a punch, it’s time for him to start taking more of them…
‘The Way to the Devil’s Heart’ is, of course, bad theology. But it’s not exactly bad psychology. It is, indeed, very difficult to be unpleasant to someone who is cheerfully serving you a piping-hot portion of properly prepared roast beef, particularly if they are being generous about the crust. It’s just so petty. And nobody likes to think of themselves as being petty.
I need to get cracking on finishing up TINSEL RAIN. I finally organized the chapters properly; now I just need to write stuff to fill in the gaps. Maybe I can even get it finished before November starts! But even like this it looks a lot more like a damn book.
…and I plan to have at least a few copies of all of my books to date, and definitely my new novel MORGAN BAROD. So stop on by! Buy my books! Buy books from the people who are showing such excellent discernment!
I’m not actually joking, although I am damn well putting my own stuff first. International shipping times are getting worse and worse. If it’s not in a warehouse in the USA now, the odds of a toy or game getting to you in time for Christmas are pretty bad, and they’re not going to get better. Certainly not in three months! Excuse me: two and a half months.
