I’ve written four collections of comics, and am working on my ninth (!!!!!) novel. I can tell you from experience that the editing is the hardest part, both in terms of difficulty and emotional impact. The fact that it takes a team of trained experts to create the illusion that I passed sixth-grade grammar is not lost on me.
Hey, just so you know, all through the month of September (2017, in case you’re reading this in the far distant future), the Kindle edition (See, in this time period, eBooks are still locked in a format war, and their prices are set differently in different regions, as the global economy has not yet unified under the singular global currency, the “Gleuro.”) of my latest book, Run Program (As of this time, I have not yet written my later works, including the multi-volume series about my as-yet uninvented character, the hard-boiled detective Victor Lamaze. How quaint this primitive version of the world must seem to you.), is on sale in the US for only $1.99. (Roughly three hundred Gleuro, adjusted for inflation.)
