The August Meat Grinder


I finished my reader draft last week and sent it out to my lucky (?) first readers.

I still don’t have a title. I still don’t have a cover. I still don’t have stock photos for the cover. I’m supposedly working on that myself but my efforts haven’t been successful so far. I will write a post about this at some point.

I’m going to work on getting a little teaser going for here soon.

The day after I sent out the manuscript, I went on an extra long weekend trip to St. Louis and Kansas City with my sweetheart. The last few days when I was spending every possible waking moment finishing my manuscript I kept saying: I promise I’ll pay attention to you when we go on vacation.

And I did. We had a great time. We did historical stuff and touristy stuff and took naps. I saw my sports team play. I ate BBQ and drank local IPAs. I was completely screen free except for my phone.

We’re still on schedule for a mid-October release.
