The final chapter of the book is finished and... I have to say not even I was expecting it. It's one of the best feelings as a writer when your characters write the story for you. It's even more of a joy when they surprise the hell out of you with their deviousness. Sometimes you need to let a story sit for a while. It can feel like procrastination and you may find yourself laying for hours at a time on your couch as you burn through all four seasons of Spartacus. (BTW... do not try to write dialogue after watching that show for ten hours. The idioms are infectious.)
I'm really excited about the new story and even more pleased with how quickly its come together in spite of vast stretches of non-productivity. This book was a struggle at points but I think it provides a unique experience while maintaining the integrity of the characters as they rise to meet their destiny. The stakes are much higher in this book and we see them raised even higher for the next.
The front cover artwork is done and I'm in negotiations with an editor to get the product ready to market in October. Pre-Orders for the ebook should be open at the end of July.
Thanks so much to Matt at Inkspiral design for working so quickly to get this completed.
