Completed My First Novel - Looking @ Summer 2019 For Publication

As the title states, I'm 48k words into my first novel. For the last few years, I've had this idea for a book/screen play regarding certain aspects of the world that haven't been touched on too much. I started it to take my mind off of the BS at work, and progress was initially slow. Then when I was no longer working, I put the pedal down. On my free time while looking for a new job (you know chillin' at the beach, chillin' in hotel rooms on vacation, visits to different cities and tracks) I've been letting my imagination run wild. I just finished chapter 6, and I have three more chapters to knock out. Next, it's on to me proof reading it then sending it to a proofer/editor.

I promise you that any active member on the board will love the drama/suspense/action/adventure/and the realness of the story. Stay tuned and buy a copy once it's completed.

Let the questions fly, but I can't reveal too much.

Re: I'm 48,000 Words In...

I just finished chapter 7. The way I initially outlined the story, it only contained 9 chapters. Now I only have two more to go. As of now, I'm 54,912 words in. It's 85 pages long now which equates to about 201 manuscript. I'm ballparking the final word count to be about 67,000 before editing and proofing. Then we'll see what happens from there. Time will tell.

I'm in the final stretch. It's about 93% done or so.

I'll just leave this here while I go back in and start the next phase of trying to get this as close to prefection as I can.

Thanks for the support.

I'll be looking for Beta readers pretty soon. Is there anyone who's an avid reader who may be interested?

I'm not an avid reader, but interested in the subject matter. I have thought about writing a book a few times. I have some stories to tell!
