I have finished a whole new, revised Katie Gale as of today. My plan is to post a sample chapter here. I’m looking for an editor. I’ll read a couple of chapters at the Olympia Bookfair next Saturday, the 18th at 1:20 p.m. I’m feeling great about getting this ms. ready for the “next stage” and finally, soon, available to the public.

I asked a professional editor to work on the manuscript. She provided wonderful notes and though Katie languished all through the summer while I took a trip to Russia, attended Puget Sound Guitar Workshop, and worked on Mountain of Shell, I am back at it. I am on page 60 of a new revision. I’m adding much more detail at the suggestion of my editor. My plan is to get the book out in some form soon after the first of the year.
Postscript. This entry was dated 2009. The book is on my table as of yesterday. It is August 2013. Only four years later!!!
