There is good news and there is bad news. The bad news is that I have pulled the plug on the Phoenix. After some consideration, I decided that the basic concept was flawed. So, I could write and re-write it a million times, but it would still be horrible. I might be able to salvage some minor things from it, but that is all.
The good news is that my secret project is done. I've written the novel and typed it into my computer. But it might be a while before it gets published. It still needs to be checked and then I have to do some pondering on how to go about the publicity/promotion part.
