I finished editing last night. It's always a huge relief when I turn that final page and say: I'm done. I have to fight the inner critic that always wants to do more, always could find something to improve on. If I let him have his way, nothing would ever get published. So when I hit that special point that I feel like I can tell him, in good conscience, to BACK THE F- OFF... yeah, that's a good feeling.
In celebration, I wanted to share a preview of the cover. My wife had it done super-early this time (she stumbled across the perfect picture to start), and I've been holding onto it for a bit, wanting to finish editing before putting this out there. Anyway, editing is done, so here is the cover:
You may smoke, sir.
