About the Rogue Spy publication date ...
This is what I said:
"I am typing away on the edits of the final draft of Rogue Spy right now.
I mean ... I will push the blue 'publish' button at the bottom of this little white box I'm typing in
and go get a cuppa coffee in the kitchen,
(stepping over the dog on the way,)
and come back,
(stepping over the dog again,)
and set myself down,
and start typing on Chapter Ten's edits.
Chapter Ten, btw, is where we wander off from the main plot and see what the villain is up to. NOT one of the great moments in Literature, I'm afraid.
Anyhow. What I'm saying is that I have dealt with all the IRL problems that beset me and am now working like a dog,
(a conscientious dog, not my trusty hound who sleeps 23 out of the 24 hours a day,)
and am getting close to finishing the manuscript.
Amazon has the Kindle edition ready for preorder and informs us it will be available in November 2014. Presumably that is what the publisher has told them. Also, presumably, the publisher is not committing itself to a print edition -- if any -- until it has the manuscript in its collective hot little hands.
(And who shall blame them?)
So I guess we'll have to wait till I turn in the ms and the publisher decides when and if a print edition will hit the shelves. That might be November 2014."
The writer is always the last to know ...
