My final polishing of "Smoky Days and Sleepless Nights: A Century or so With the Albon Fire Department" is DONE. So, it's finished, right? Nah. It still needs to be line edited by someone else -- someone who hasn't gone over the manuscript fifty times like I have -- and I still face sorting through piles of photos to find the right ones to go into it.
Still, it's a huge milestone that releases some time for me to work on other things. The "Storm Chaser" Christmas story I'm giving away at the book signings on Dec 3rd and Dec 9th still needs a little polishing, but I'm ready to start the outline for my "Storm Chaser" sequel. If all goes well, I'll start on the first draft by the beginning of next month.
