Finishing the final (FINAL) draft of Beta Male at the moment. No major revisions, mostly just paring the fat, and fixing some of the dialogue. There's a temptation to go as fast as possible, to get it done now because I'm so excited about putting it out.
Got to remind myself to take my time with it, to release the best possible version of this book that I can.
Good work matters, and it matters a lot.
Just finished Fates and Furies, an excellent novel where the craft really shows.
Make it perfect, make it last forever...
