Cities and suburbs, real and imaginary.

Close to the end

When you get close to the end on something big, everything around you is in shambles. My clothes are piled everywhere - clean, dirty, whatever - and dishes are everywhere and take-out is everywhere and books are everywhere and the bathroom is a wreck and the kitchen is a wreck and you can't imagine how it got that way, because you've been cleaning so hard, so hard... Just, your prose, not your apartment.

Almost there.

Any hints for what we're waiting impatiently to see? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

I've been hinting at it for months. Working title is MAZE.

Publishing is enormously slow. I've written whole books you've never seen.

But, they're good books, and they'll get their time in the sun.
