Snip, Snip, Shit, Bring Out the Machete...

5,849 words left to cut to get me to 140K. I've cut 25,982 so far during this pass.

Exhausting work, but I'd just put it off too damn long. It was about time it got done. It's a reasonable book length now, and the story's been scraped down to the core, no extraneous bullshit.

Still, tiring. Should finish by tomorrow, and then I'll have no book-guilt regarding this one. It's a clean shot.

When is your book to be published?

Gosh, wouldn't I like to know? Like the other nine I've written, it's quite possible it might just end up in a trunk somewhere.

We'll see what happens.

Save it - when you're famous you can re-release it in full but by then you will hate it anyway. Consider publishing online or a variant - I'd buy from you.
