All right, everyone. The overlong hiatus is at an end, and I have to tell you--I feel a lot like Viggo in that picture. Why? The WiP is DONE! It's battle-cry time, people!
The drafting--finito. My brain--kaputs. As it should be.
This is my 7th book, finished at 2:30 AM--on the 7th!
I'll be honest. I missed the blogosphere, and it's going to be a long time before I update myself on everything you guys have done. In fact, be a pal and comment a brief update on what you've done in the last six weeks, if you're so willing. That would help me immensely!
So what's next, Mr. Deserter?
The fun part! There's several things in motion right now that I'm really excited about. Had a few headshots taken for the blog and facebook, and my genius of a sister-in-law is helping to design a concept cover for the WiP. There's a query letter and a synopsis to draft and a list of Beta readers to consider. After a short break, I'll read through the whole thing and trim it to a five- number figure. YA over 100K words is not an easy sell.
Since this is a collaboration, it will be a while before I can announce the title (when the copyright becomes official), but I can provide some fun statistics!

So, yeah! Meesa back, everybody! Everything I mentioned is tentative and subject to change. Look for the rundown of this writing journey/lesson on Monday.
I'm David, and someone launched fireworks at 4 AM!
