Putting it together

I have finished the read-through of the sequel to “Crashers.” I got up at 4:30 a.m. yesterday to slams through the end of Act II. I came home at lunch to sweep into Act III. I got home last night, changed to sweats, and drove it home.

Now to clean out the Augean stables….

Seriously, the job now is to begin inputting the edits I made. Page by page. I should be finished by Christmas. After that, the Princess Consort will do a read-through. Katy has amazing eyes (I mean that in every conceivable sense) and she catches stuff I never would.

To quote Stephen Sondheim: “Step by Step/Putting it Together….”

  1. Dear Dana–
    One of my cousins just finished Crashers and highly recommended it to me. He also told me about your line of acknowledgement. I’m most grateful! I’ve always thought Crash Detectives was the best story I’ve written, and by now long forgotten by all. Anyhow, thanks again, good luck with the book, I look forward to reading it!

    Best Jonathan
