My new novel Kumquat is done!
By “done” I mean that I’ve written all of it and I’ve typed “The End,” but there’s still about a page worth of notes to myself that I have to address in the manuscript. (Sample: “They would be staying in an overflow hotel, not the actual convention hotel.”) I count this as being done, dammit.
For those of you wondering when you’ll get to read this book, my answer is an enthusiastic “I have no idea.” Unlike pretty much everything else I’ve written for the past decade, this wasn’t sold to a publisher before I wrote it. So after I do my final read-through, it’s going off to my agent. What will happen to it from there? Stay tuned for the latest updates.
