I just finished writing the first draft of DEAR READER. I read dozens of books and analyzed ten of thousands of pages to create a working manuscript. It took quite a bit longer than expected because the book is quite a bit longer than expected: 411 pages, 124,000 words. (By contrast my previous book was 249 pages/82,000 words)
What happens now? Well there's a second and a third draft, each faster than the last. I'm going to send out an update next week about how I revise, it might be useful to anyone who ever considers writing (it sure would have been useful to me!) Then there's the actual production, which won't take long at all.
I can't believe I pulled this off. (If I hadn't written several books before, though, I would never have been able to). Thank you all so much for making this happen.
The People's Author
PS for those of you asking, yes the book will be on Amazon!
