You may have noticed that I cut back on blogging and tweeting a bit in recent months. That's because I was working hard to finish a draft of Saturnine that I could show beta readers. I had a draft years ago, but that version was not ready to publish and needed a lot of changes.
So last November, I participated in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), and I completely re-wrote the book. By the month's end, I had 50,000 words, but it was still a rough draft.
Since last autumn, I've been writing and rewriting, and last weekend I finally opened the door to let a few readers critique it. One full write-up of the novel is on my desk, and I'm starting to plow through the editing stage. At this point I have no idea what any release date will be, but I will keep everyone posted. So that means I'll try to be on social media a little more.
