The saga continues! "The Missionary and the Brute" was the first in a series of novels that explores the rise and fall and fall and fall of the Ross family. Followed by "Animated Lives!" in 2011, the collection will add two new entries "The Death of O'Ryan Ross" and "silent words" in December, 2012.

The Proof is in...
The proof of "The Missionary and the Brute" is in. Obviously. I'm fairly happy with it. One minor formatting change at the end of a chapter is needed and another on the title page. Now I'm giving it the once over to see if any other typos or necessary edits leap out at me.
None so far.
It feels substantial to me. Nice and weighty without being onerous in that regard. Paper stock feels good. And the typeface works for me. As to the writing itself - I honestly believe it is the best I have in me to do.
I'll make the changes tonight and it should still be on course to be published before December. Woohoo!
Amazon by Thanksgiving? It's a possibility. Keep watching for updates...
