Manuscript status

I have finished adding all the new text to the manuscript of the current draft of Catherine's Grandchildren: A Short History of the Russian-Germans under Soviet Rule. It is now 175 pages (50,000 words) long. This is about exactly half as long as my PhD dissertation. In the next couple of weeks I am going to edit it and get it ready for publication.

Otto,

I have read a lot on Catherine lately. What do you find the most fascinating aspect of her life? I hope your book is published soon. I would be interested to read it.

I think the way she came into power is most interesting.
