Talk about a weight off my shoulders. Of course I had BETROTHAL even before I got around to FOUL MOUTH, so it's not strictly the sophomore jinx, but this was a tough one. Mostly because so much of what's going on is set up work for the later novels in the series and the contained plots keep blowing up in our hero's face. How does one write a novel about mistakes and failure without the novel itself becoming a failure? It's a conundrum, but one I think solved. There's a lot of great scenes in this one. Maybe thee outright funniest scene I've written so far in my writing career.
Next up will be three to four months of editing. Maybe one rewrite on a chapter. Nothing huge. Which means...May? I guess. Hard to have a firm release date as an Indie.
The Foul Mouth and the Cat Killing Coyotes, coming soon to a Kindle near you.
