I just shipped off the final revisions to my thriller, MAZE MASTER, which is coming out in July.
It’s been an interesting editorial process this year. There are a few pivotal editors–I mean truly great editors–in literary history: Maxwell Perkins, Gordon Lish, Judith Jones, among a handful of others. Remember the classic Tom Wolfe novel, LOOK HOMEWARD, ANGEL? Maxwell Perkins made Wolfe take out 90,000 words… That’s why we consider it a classic.
My editor at St. Martin’s Press, Peter Wolverton, falls into the Perkins group. It’s been a pleasure and a privilege to work with him on this book.
