Hi Blog.  This is just an update to tell you that after two weeks of intensive writing and revising, I have successfully written my first novel.

What’s it about?  Well, right now, about 141 pages.

Sorry, old joke zone.

No, actually it’s about child abductions in Japan.

I’ve already sent out a preliminary draft to several readers to for some feedback.  Once that’s back in, I think I should have the book on sale sometime in March.

More information as it comes available!  Thanks you for reading Debito.org!  Arudou Debito

  • WOAH?! That was fast! Will you still be gone till april? If you do, that’s fine, as I’d imagine one would need a break after those two weeks. Nice to hear a update. Thanks for writing.

  • wow..thats quick…for publishing that is.
    I’ve had to go through a detailed peer review of my synopsis and many other hurdles first for my book..

    Good luck with your book

    Well, the synopsis grabbed my attention! I’m looking forward to reading it. I’ll need to get my copy to you so you can sign it…I can’t have the book of one of my oldest friends without having it autographed you know.

    — Happy and honored to oblige. Wilco, Steve!
