Been awhile, sorry about that. Just been busy with two jobs, a wonderful relationship and good old fashioned life.
Anyway, I have finished the first of three manuscripts and it's presentable enough for the next stage . . . submission. As we all know, it depends if the publisher liked it or not, but my writing friends have confidence in my ability to spin a good yarn. Of course, there is independent publishing as an option, but want to try the traditional route first.
