The Book is Finished!... REALLY Finished!

My new novel, Roswell Rising, a novel of Disclosure has reached the point where it can be published. Since St Theo's Day, June the 1st, I have been revising the draft. The problem with writing a novel is that if you are too much of a perfectionist the revision process can basically go on forever. You have to stop at some point and say: "OK, it'll never be absolutely flawless, but it's as good as it needs to be!" I have reached that point. So now I'm going to work on publication. This is a procedure that has changed beyond all recognition since I brought out Rockall in 2004. Today it is infinitely easier so I hope this won't take too long. As soon as this job is complete I will put the book on sale. I will arrange a formal launch for the novel in the coming weeks, but I won't wait for that to make Roswell Rising available to readers. The launch will consist probably of special HPANWO TV and Radio shows. I'll post all developments here on Ben's Bookcase as soon as I have finalized them. In the meantime, I've included Annette Lemaire's artwork again that will be incorporated into the book's cover design.
