I just finished editing The Worlds, my first book, and in my humble opinion it sounds damn good. All it needs is a few new scenes and I'm ready to write them. I've got a page of ideas set up in my scene book. Tomorrow will be a writing day.
I'm so pleased with the sound of it -- the pace, the words, the style. I don't know if it will have wide appeal but I enjoyed reading it. That was my aim at the outset: to write a book that someone like me would find interesting. I think I did that and I'm thrilled.
