So… late last week I handed in a 50k-word novel in The Executioner series created by Don Pendleton. That makes it at least my thirty-fifth book about Mack Bolan, and something like more than forty novels total of my work in print. While I took this assignment for mixed reasons, some purely mercenary, it got me wondering if I was back in the writing game. And is it good or bad? And am I playing for keeps this time?
