Hold the Presses!

Well, the book is done, dusted, outta here! After months of writing, deleting, backspacing, cutting, pasting, re-writing, editing, re-editing, post-editing, etc, Wired is at the printers.

This will be my third non-fiction book — and my final one. I just don’t have enough operations to go around for a fourth effort. That sits well with me. I’ve been wanting to turn my hand to fiction, and that hand looks to be forced. I have a few ideas swimming around upstairs, so I’m looking forward to the challenge already.

As for Wired, it scrubbed up okay. A few things I like about it:

– there’s a neat little chapter in there about a conman I worked on. It’s a nice respite from all the drug dealing operations which took up 99% of my time.

– some anecdotes tickled me. One involved a morning tea with the Chief Commissioner; another about the challenges of boy/girl relationships when you’re an undercover cop.

– Operation Desert Storm. Just an interesting read on high-level amphetamines dealers, I think.

So, book in the bank, I’ll be taking a rest over the Christmas period, recharging, and then bracing myself for the publicity rounds in March. I wish all readers a merry, but safe, Christmas and a New Year full of surprising discoveries and fun, fun, fun. Take care you all.

    Hey Dame, long time no speak, but there is no rest for the wicked, yeah? I’m keeping my eyes peeled and shall give you feedback as soon as I’ve read “Wired”.
    And a toast to you. Keep your dream alive.
