Well, it suddenly occurred to me. I am near the end of my second book, “Severed Limbs”. The ﬁrst draft at least. I have been working on it, more and less, for the past three years already. There have been many other, less ambitious, projects in between, but I started it before I had quite ﬁnished “The Moth or the Flame”. So, to be this close is quite exciting for me.
I have one more scene to complete on the ﬁrst draft. And then, by my calculations, a few months of revisions. Hopefully the book will be complete and looking for publication by early next year. But, unless something catastrophic occurs, it deﬁnitely will be ready by next Spring.
Here is the ﬁnal page of the next to ﬁnal scene. Some of Fred’s encounters are reverberating through his mind, while he is also worried he may have made a drastic mistake in his course of action.
(This page has already been slightly revised. I scanned in an earlier version just to get a sense of what it would look like fully inked and that is what you are seeing.)
