Job done – but what is it called?

The most welcome words to a writer’s eye have at last been typed: The End.

After far too many months, numerous delays and self-inflicted procrastinations the fifth book in the ongoing Bromo Perkins crime fiction series has been completed.

All 95,000 words of it – far more than any of the previous books and well in excess of what was intended.

This, of course, is only the beginning – or at least a step along the way.

Now comes the all-important revisions, inevitable rewriting and probably much pruning.

Plus one other essential: a title. Several ideas have flitted into my brain, and just as quickly vanished. None seem quite to encapsulate the main theme of the story or have that attention grabbing brevity needed to catch a reader’s eye.

So, watch this space.
