Old Geezers crawling to completion

I've finished the penultimate edit of the Three Geezers novel.

   All the plot holes are sealed (I hope) and dead ends filled. Now all I have to do is go over it once more, perhaps using the very good advice of Shawn Lamb about editing it backwards. All I have to do is fix the clumsy passive verbs, the crappy dialogue and the appalling punctuation. It may take some time, but I have a week off work next week so I hope to finish it then.

  Then I'll put it onto Kindle, and perhaps even CreateSace, if they ever pull their collective fingers out and send me the proof of the first book I sent them what feels like several centuries ago. If they haven't sent it within one more week I'll have to look somewhere else. There must be another company that actually wants the business.
