Before the New Year kicks into gear, and I try to fumble my way to posting more often, I’d thought I’d bring you up to date on the new book.
Yesterday I completed the edits for The Hungry Dark.
Hopefully within the next week or so I’ll be commissioning the cover art and talking with a copy editor.
(Of course, I still have to write the back jacket blurb for the damn thing, but one problem at a time, eh?)
As of this post The Hungry Dark clocks in at around 112,500 words.
So, quite a bit longer than the roughly 85k words in Drawn to Flame. 32% longer, in fact.
I’m looking forward to sharing Caleb’s new story with everyone.
(I’m also looking forward to finishing draft 1 of book 3 – hopefully by June.)
I’m not looking forward to all the emails to potential reviewers I’ll have to send since I didn’t get any responses last time, but that’s just my anxiety talking, and I’ve been learning to ignore it.)
Anyways, I hope your New Year’s Eve is grand, and your New Year’s Day hangover manageable.
Until next time…
