I know it’s been a long time, but the wait is almost over.
At 210,000 words, the rough draft of Horn Lake is finished and the editing process is well underway. I am shooting for an early September release.
This is far and away the most difficult project I’ve ever undertaken… not only due to its size, or the complication of the growing paralysis in my hands, but the challenge of presenting a big story with a complex series of character arcs in a way that doesn’t lose the reader. There were times I despaired of being able to do it. Yet finally here we are, and the feedback from my proofreaders has been positive, so I’m hopeful I’ve pulled it off.
After writing of zombies, giant spiders, and monster-infested suburban neighborhoods, Horn Lake is my stab at a haunted house novel… although there is a little more to it than that. Now to get it through the polishing stages so it can be the best version of itself possible.
I thank all of you for waiting.
