I realize I’ve been rather quiet for the past few weeks. No, I haven’t been sick. I didn’t fall down a well or get abducted by a clown. I’ve simply been busy.
Like, 20k words per week busy. I’ve got a new fantasy series (Chaos and Retribution. It’s the sequel to my other fantasy series, Immortality and Chaos. Or maybe I&C is the prequel to C&R. I’m not clear on this.) that I’m releasing this summer. Book 1, Stone Bound, will drop in mid-July sometime and books 2 and 3 in August and September. (A fourth Ace book and a fourth book in this series will come out in the fall sometime.)
Is 20k words per week a lot, you ask? Well, it’s enough that I can turn out a standard 350 or so page book in six weeks, if that answers your question. It feels like a lot to me.
Anyway, book 1 is done. The rough draft of book 2 will be finished next week. Then I’ll take a week off and dive into book 3. And I haven’t gone crazy yet (meaning I don’t have drinks with bartenders that aren’t there and I haven’t chopped any doors down in my house) so that’s a definite plus.
(PS If you’re interested in my first fantasy series, you can go get a free copy of book 1 here. All you need to do is sign up for my email list. I promise not to bug you if you do. Much.)
