As of yesterday the first draft of my new novel is finished. From cogitation and note-scribbling to the final word on-screen has taken under a year. It's also shorter than my previous books: am I
 becoming less verbose? It's called 'A shed in a cucumber field.' (Isaiah 1 v 8). You can tell I like interesting titles.
Of course there's a way to go yet, many edits by myself and others, before it's sufficiently polished to let it out on its own. And I haven't decided yet how to go about getting it out in the big world of books. There are many routes these days.
Like its predecessors, 'Leviathan with a Fish-hook', 'The Monster Behemoth' and 'The Land of Nimrod', it's British Christian fiction, but it's a stand-alone this time.
I'll post here when it emerges.
What next? I have absolutely no idea.
