I may be finished writing the first draft of ANNIE’S DREAM at 44,610 words.
As of this morning, ANNIE’S DREAM, my companion novel to METAL MAN WALKING is 28 Chapters long with 21,173 words so far.
Several readers of METAL MAN WALKING continue to ask me about characters other than Charlie. ANNIE’S DREAM, at this point, focuses on Rick, Jim and his relationship with his sons, and Judith’s family — Michael and Susan Lesser, and her parents Joel and Alena Holmes. Vietnam figures prominently in this piece of fiction.
Just an update, and a teaser. ANNIE’S DREAM should be available by Spring, 2013 although I have set my sights on Christmas, 2012.
