It has taken a while but I am pleased to report that Loremaster is finally re-written. I finished yesterday but was too whacked from the battle to do anything else. It took just this side of forever but I am happy with the result. Many thanks to Bruce and Roy and Dawn for their suggestions and editorial input.

Today I paid a visit to my local printer and had the manuscript printed in two formats. One was double-spaced, single-sided for submission. The other was reduced to 9pt font, single-spaced, double-sided and spiral bound for me to read and for additional proofing.

The manuscript for submission will be sent to DAW Books on the morning of August 9th.

August 9th??? Why wait?

Well, the family and I are going on vacation. We're heading up to the wilds on Northern Ontario for some much needed rest and relaxation. We'll be camping and swimming and fishing and maybe, if I'm especially lucky, I might get some golf played, as well.
