Editor needs to get ready!

I won’t say my keys are smoking, but the third book in the Wanda series is over sixty percent finished. I should have it out to the editor by November 3rd.

If you haven’t read “A Cork upon the Sea” and “A Slip into the Abyss” yet, you need to get on with it.

This third book has a working title of: “Uxoricide Blotched or why she wouldn’t die.”

Here’s a paragraph from the second page: “The cool isolation of the swim platform of the tour boat lulled me into a gentle calmness that had been missing in my life for some time. Coming to the South Pacific to iron the bumps out of our marriage had been a good choice. The pressure in the middle of my back provided no disruption to my peace until I became aware that it was pushing me from my tenuous perch. I panicked as I twisted and grabbed for the unknown that was shoving me from the boat.”

A Slip into the Abyss

The ominous wind from the dark-green clouds swirled to connect with the deadly vortex rising from the earth. The tornado lasted a scant two minutes. In that time, it raced across the high school sports complex and down College Street. The roaring wind crushed the old gym, pinning Wanda under tons of debris. It entombed the volleyball team in darkness below the same gymnasium. It ripped down College Street for no more than two blocks before returning to its raging home in the monstrous clouds.
