GoingDark_200x358So last night, just shy of 0200, I sent the “final” manuscript of Going Dark to my editor, Joe Monti, at Saga Press. I put “final” in quotes, because I’ll get one more pass at the manuscript after the copyedit, and another chance to tweak things when the page proofs arrive. But for practical purposes, I’m done with The Red Trilogy.

It’s been a three-year project, and now that it’s winding down, I’m starting to realize how much I’m going to miss these characters and this story world. For all the frustration, and the struggle to get the story down, I’ve really loved writing these novels. For all the self-doubt, and regardless how it turns out, I’m glad I took the shot.

    I’m looking forward to reading it! By the way, I have been reading the Nexus books that you recommended a couple of months ago. They are great! Thanks for the recommendation!

    So when is Memory 2 coming? 😉

  9. Linda Says:

    I keep thinking about that, but how can I afford to write a book that only a few people will read? 🙁
