It's happened. The printed proof of Unannounced arrived two days ago, and it is beautiful. After two years of hard work, I now have a book to hold in my hands. Gratifying fruition of all my efforts. But hold on. You can't buy the book yet--not quite yet. The proof has a handful of minor errors that need correcting before the book is available to the world. Those are in progress right now, then I can present all of you with a perfect tome that you will enjoy reading. I guarantee it.
This great news has put finishing The Shallows on hold for a few days. More on that intriguing book later. In the midst of everything else I'm also reading an oldie (1980) that was recommended as the perfect example of a thriller: Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Identity.
