The One About …The Finish Line

Four Years.

If you had told me it would take this long, I would never have believed it. I would have run away screaming.
It cost me three computers. It’s gone through twenty-seven drafts, including three reconceptions.

It was stopped dead in its tracks by the death of my best friend.

It was stopped dead in its tracks by a lightning strike on my home (sometimes, I just won’t take a hint from the Universe).

And earlier this year, it was stopped on final time by the illness and passing of my mother, literally, my cheerleader, the one person in the world who more than anyone wanted to read this. She got to see the next to last draft, but by that point, well…

Long path to this point. So was it worth it?

I don’t know. Because, dang it, the journey isn’t finished yet. Amy and Steve’s tale has at least one final chapter, which I fleshed out during NaNoWriMo last month. 55,000 words written in November, Triangle: Zodiac is zipping along nicely.

But before it does, I have a delivery to make. So, as they say, it’s soup. On Tuesday, December 13, Triangle: Wildcard will be available in both hardcopy on demand and Kindle at Amazon. Whether I’ll be doing any appearances at shows in the future is up in the air. More to come, I’m sure.
