If I was a filmmaker, my latest book would be at what could be the "answer print" phase. Done, but not quite *done*.
Sitting on the desktop next to the window where I type this is the first PDF distilled from the recently completed fifth draft of The Fall Of The Hammer, my new novel. If I was a filmmaker, this is what I'd call the "answer print" phase: the first version of the film delivered to the studio with sound and picture fully synced and with color correction, but still pending final changes like editing for pacing.
It's always a strange feeling to have in front of you a file that you could in theory just sign off on and deliver as-is to your readers. Very few, if any, story changes remain to be made. I've gone as far as I can go as I am right now with that part of it; the rest would be pending feedback from my hand-picked crew of test readers, or some eleventh-hour-and-fifty-ninth-minute revelation on my part. But I know there's still some work left to be done. I've waited this long to finish it, I can wait a little longer.
