Book Note
« on: October 27, 2012, 09:00:39 PM »
I sent the second draft of my new novel, Ligntning Fall, off to my agent today.

Most likely one more major revision to come, but still: fingers crossed.  It weighed in at 951 pages in manuscript, after all additions and revisions.  About 237,000 words.  If it comes out in hardcover, you can use it as a doorstop.

Since it's a novel, I assume note of that is end notes.  :D

Actually, that might be an idea for a book like this - a foot/end noted edition (maybe with the notes in a companion volume) with research notes, more detailed explanations of concepts than can be included in the story, etc.
