Short and Sweet

Attention, readers. Little announcement to make.

I have now officially completed my third book.

Damn, it feels good. It currently has 20 short stories plus a notes index. 277 pages (roughly 76,000 words long.)

In time I plan to podcast it. But for right now . . .

I'm on the verge of Snoopy Dances.

Congratulations! Isn't it such a wonderful feeling to finish a book? I know at the beginning of any new project, I always wonder if this will be yet another unfinished project that I end up walking away from partway through.

I know.
For a long time I thought the book wouldn't get finished. I'd come back to it with a month wide gap in between writing. But last night was exhilarating victory. Shared a beer with my father to celebrate the occasion.
