On October 9, 2014, I sat down and began writing a novel entitled LOVER OF GOD.
I probably had less idea where the story was going on this story than on any of the other books I have written, but I had a great prologue to build on. And, once I crawled through that hole in my keyboard and found myself standing in the streets of Rome in 64 AD, I spotted a man. A character named Marcus Quintus Publius. I began to follow him, and his story began to take shape.
Nearly 10 months and 136,000 words later, the story is done.
Now I am going to take a break, let the story gel a bit, then go back through and do a hard edit before sending it to my publisher this fall.
