100,000 WORDS LATER

Now, Time for a Little Rewriting

A48 and CountingFTER ALMOST A YEAR hunched over the keyboard, I finally have a first draft of my new book, the Jonathan Clements Money Guide, an annually updated personal-finance book. The 2015 edition will hit bookstores next January. At 100,000 words, this is easily the longest book I have ever written, but it's also the most comprehensive, covering the full array of financial-planning topics.

Now, the fun part begins, taking this mass of words and trying to kick them into shape. Over the next few months, I'll probably take three or four passes through the manuscript, endeavoring to polish up the writing.

At the same time, I'll also be banging out my weekly column for The Wall Street Journal Sunday, a special section available in 70 U.S. newspapers with a combined circulation of seven million. In addition, the column appears on WSJ.com and MarketWatch.com.

You can, of course, still buy my earlier books, including my novel 48 and Counting: A Story of Money, Love and Bicycling and my last personal-finance book, The Little Book of Main Street Money: 21 Simple Truths that Help Real People Make Real Money. The novel tells the tale of amateur cyclist Max Whitfield (whose character, in case you're wondering, is not modeled after your favorite personal-finance columnist). The book is available through Amazon as both a $9.99 paperback and a $3.99 Kindle e-book. Meanwhile, The Little Book of Main Street Money was named one of SmartMoney's 10 best financial books of 2009 and includes a foreword by William Bernstein. What’s the book all about? Take a look at the introduction.
