Second Draft

Frankenbook Lives!

Posted in Uncategorized by Jill Snider Lum on Wednesday, April 21, 2010

It’s been a crowded few days — as you may have noticed by our lack of posts — but I did want to take a moment or two, just now, to announce that my oft-revised, several-times-reworked, frequently-cut-up-and-restitched-together-from-spare-parts novel, the Frankenbook, is finally finished.

Not sure I can call it a first draft, though it’s certainly a first draft of the book in its present form.  And I really don’t want to change that basic form, since I think it’s finally a respectable monster — I mean, novel.  In a little while I’ll submit it to the Cecil Street group, so they can help me see where it might need to have some scar tissue excised, or maybe a third ear removed.  And then we’ll see.

I need a title, mind you.  It’s had so many titles that I can hardly remember them all, and none of them have been much good.  At the moment its title is “Needs New Title”.  Maybe I’ll just leave it at that… <deranged giggle>

Meanwhile, the sequel is already 15,000 words long.  Son of Frankenbook…
