Finished The Fetch

Finally! After more than 20 years, I have finished The Fetch. It came in at 106,200 words, which is roughly 30,000 more than it had when I returned to seriously working on it early this year. Am I happy with it? I don’t know yet. It still needs some work. I was developing the laws of the astral world right up to the end, so there’s some smoothing out to do. If I decide to play up the young adult market angle, there’ll be some more tweaks. Having a woman in astral projection masturbating her husband might not play well in the YA market.

But, for now, it’s done!

Watch this space. After some sleep I’ll be back to announce my first contest in several months.

  1. Congrats on getting The Fetch done.
    Have a great weekend!

  2. Awesome. An agent (who liked FEEDING GROUND, but wasn’t interested in the Magician trilogy I’m probably going to spend the next year working on) recently said none of the big houses will touch anything more than 100,000. I don’t know how true that is, but just thought I’d pass it on.

  3. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    You shame me.

    1. Pfft! Finishing the book and selling the book are two different thing. Just because a dog squeezes off an impressive pile of crap doesn’t mean anybody’s gonna want to pay for it.
      Happy release day to you!

  4. Will the sequel be called The Fetch Lives?

    1. Oh good lord no!!
      Thanks for the heads-up on word count. I’m pretty sure I can trim the book back to less than 100k.

  5. Awesome. Do I get to see it?

  6. Wow, congratulations!
    *20 years, my gosh, persistance undreamed of…*

    1. Or maybe I was just too lazy to start something new? 😉

  7. Man, twenty years, that’s some serious dedication. Congrats! You’ve earned some sleep.
