The Waking Nightmare

I finished the fourth DIAGNOSIS MURDER novel, tentatively titled “The Waking Nightmare,” today and sent it off to my publisher… two weeks ahead of my deadline. I wrote the book in four months, despite breaking both my arms and working by day as a writer/producer on MISSING.

It was real important to me to make my deadline, even though my editor offered to extend it. I think the book helped me recuperate faster than I might have otherwise. But now I’m afraid I’ll never be able to get a deadline extension from my editor in the future. He can always say “how bad can it be? You made your deadline before with two broken arms!”

The rush to finish the book is also why you’ve seen fewer postings here lately. I’ll try to contribute more frequently…

    You’re quite the inspiration and you certainly show your excitement to get the job done. I don’t think anyone should complain about deadlines, etc., after seeing what you’ve been through and have plished!

    C’mon now! You’re creative! :^) I’m sure you can come up with something to change a future deadline. Just don’t break any more bones. They may expect you to get it done sooner than the last one.
