I’m making good progress writing Power Surge, the second novel in the Annie McDoogan YA series. The second draft is underway and on target for a Summer 2016 publication date. There’s still a lot of work to do. The way I see it, a first draft is like a twisted, deformed skeleton. The second draft straightens out the bones and adds any missing pieces. The third draft adds the skin, and the fourth draft puts clothes on the body. The fifth draft adds hair, makeup and a shiny new cover and sends the book along its way.
