Yes, it's true, today I shipped off the first draft of CONTAGIOUS to Crown. "The Shiv," my editor, is sharpening his knives as we speak. This was a huge step in getting the book to stores on the projected December 30 date. Now The Shiv and I go to work tearing that manuscript to pieces and gluing it back together again. Hopefully it comes out a little better than Michael Jackson's face, which followed a similar process.
This means Episode #30 of NOCTURNAL will be out soon. I have to step away from CONTAGIOUS for a little bit, just to clear the head and see what Pope Siglericus XXX hath wrought with fresh eyes.
I really, really, really appreciate everyone's patience (and complete lack thereof as well) for NOCTURNAL 29, 30, 31 & 32. I will be working my Evil Heiny™ off to make it worth your while.
