The Epilogue will remain as is. I’m also thinking of changing the title of the book. “Saint Graziano the Good” sounds a little too bland and cumbersome for this story. I want a title that says, “Pick me up, read me, buy me, and read me some more!” The cover should also do that, but that’s for another day.
While I’m mainly working on poetry these days, I’ve every intention of writing a second novel. I wonder what that will be?
