Well, I just sent off the galley proofs for Megiddo's Shadow, my World War One novel. This is the last stage before the book is published so it's the last time I'll see it. It's kind of like watching your child head off to university. GoodBYE! We'll miss you! Hope the world likes you!
And like any parent who sees their kid walk out the door then immediately cleans up their room (or turns it into a guest room), I immediately cleaned up my desk and files of anything that I needed to inspire/inform/motivate me into writing Megiddo. Now my desk looks ultra clean.
GoodBYE! We'll miss you! HOPE the WORLD likes you!
