The other day I saw a video of Stephen King reading from his latest book. Okay, I know I’m not Stephen King, but it got me thinking. I could read a little excerpt from the unpublished (as of yet) third novel in the Tirumfall Trilogy. Since much of the book has completed editing, I wouldn’t be giving away anything that won’t end up in the final version. But would anyone want to hear it? And should I read from the first chapter or pick a juicy section mid-story and read from that? Right now, I’m just thinking. Maybe reaction to this post will help me decide.
In the meantime, work on that final novel in the trilogy continues. I’ve been getting mixed feedback from my editor; she really likes some sections, suggests work in others. And that’s the way it should be. So far, we’ve passed page 350 on our way to 500. I am getting there, is all I can say with no publication date in sight. In the meantime, thanks to all my readers and especially those who have taken the time to post a rating and/or review.
In other news, stay tuned for info on the forthcoming anthology of short stories (I believe there will be 20 in total) written during the pandemic. One of them is mine.
