First draft of next book complete

This is National Novel Writing Month, thirty days in which writers around the world work to produce at least 50,000 words. I used it last year to produce the first draft of my second novel, Breaking News.

Today, I’m happy to say, I completed the first draft of my third, as yet untitled novel, a police procedural set in Pittsburgh, and reached 52,000 words.

A first draft does not a novel make. Many months of redrafting and re-editing remain, but I hope to have a final draft ready by late spring.

I’ll keep you advised.
