'Crogan's March' is FINISHED!

Aaaah! The second book is finally DONE.



After a 48-hour long final stretch (with a two-hour nap break squeezed in), Crogan's March is completely finished – all of the pages checked and rechecked for artistic clarity and spelling, framing sequence reworked at the last second because the original version was a little heavy-handed, cover notes sent, mock-up for volume 3 finished, thanks and dedication and acknowledgments all done… Woof!
I finished up around 4:30 am Friday night/Saturday morning.
I can’t begin to express how much of a relief it is to be finished, especially with all the other stuff going on in life. I loved working on the book from start to finish, don’t get me wrong, but having the Oct 31 deadline hanging over me was very stressful. Luckily, it’s all done – I can focus on teaching for the next three weeks, finish a commission I’ve had on hold for a while, and spend time with my wife and (in a few days) daughter. I’ll have other projects that I’ll be working on, but none with the madcap ferocity that this one required… at least not for a few months.
So keep your eyes peeled for the book, which is due out at the end of December!
