This morning, I sent the manuscript of Live Free or Die to the publisher. Now the fun begins.

It is still in the “Work in Progress” category because it has not yet gone through editing/copyediting (officially but it surely has been gone over carefully here in the Southard household). I like to think it will not require huge editing. Actually, I’d have to say that I think this book is the best edited of any I’ve written before sending it off to the publisher. We’ll wait and see what they think!

Next up? Two possibilities: Memoir- The Twenty Year War (Living With A Greatest Generation Father) which is about seventy pages along or True Crime- Murder in a Small Town: The Tragic Death of Stacey Burns which, as anyone who has been reading this blog knows, is in limbo right now as no new information is surfacing.

There is a third possibility- another novel! A short story I wrote a few years back place second in the Society of Southwestern Authors writing contest for fiction and I think it has possibilities for a longer story.

Anyone out there care to tell me which one you would like to see me write next?
