My latest book, Revelations, is in the final phases of editing. Like every book that has come before, I experience a supreme sense of satisfaction from reaching this stage. Time simultaneously slows down and speeds up as I work to put finishing touches on the draft and prepare it for publishing. I love it. At times, I become giddy with the realization that I have reached another goal. I am *so* close. Just a few steps more, I tell myself. Of course, those steps are giant-size. Big hurdles must be overcome before I can actually share this story. Still, no worries. I am almost there. Even better, I have added an extended excerpt for you to enjoy.
