New Novel Evolving: CONDITIONAL

   I've finally finished what I hope is the last revision/editing/copy editing of CONDITIONAL, which I'm preparing for release in mid-summer. I believe I've read and re-read the entire manuscript about two dozen times, hopefully adding a little more polish each time.
   CONDITIONAL is an exciting medical thriller about life threatening conflicts between a sociopathic hospital executive who is driven by personal greed and a team of accreditation surveyors fielded by The Joint Commission. Our friends from UNANNOUNCED, Dr. Jonathan Harding and FBI Agent Peter Larsen, collaborate once again.
   I expect to spend the next month reformatting the manuscript, chapter by chapter, to make it ready for publication. That involves the labor intensive process of changing the font, the alignment, the page numbering, and the headers and footers, finally combining the chapters into a single manuscript. Then I'll add an interior book design scheme throughout the novel and convert the manuscript to PDF format. Thanks to modern word processors (I use MS Word 2010) we can all become expert type-setters.

Thank you so much for your comment. The new novel, CONDITIONAL, is progressing nicely. Today I received the draft of its cover design from the graphic designer. It will be a good read with continuing collaboration by Jonathan Harding and Peter Larsen, the lead characters from UNANNOUNCED.
