I am a great fan of Jeffrey Archer though I have read only a few books of his. He suffered several controversies in his life, with his political career ending with his conviction and subsequent imprisonment (2001–03) for perjury. Here’s how he talks about completing the 11th draft of Only Time Will Tell the first volume of Clifton Chronicles, his forthcoming book.
I can understand Jeffrey doing a 11th draft given the fine narratives of his books. True writing a novel is hard work.
