Nearing the end of Draft 1 of The City and the Dead!

Just passed the 65k word mark and I’m getting towards the end of the first draft of book 2! I just have to do the finale and the very end segment.

It’s been pretty crazy, all told. One thing that I wasn’t prepared for was how different the second book was to write. I have much more sympathy, now, for people who write long series and manage to keep all those character interactions trucking along without letting things get stale.

This time around I think the edit’s going to take longer. With the first book I did a bit of editing midway, which was a mistake. I’ve tried to rigorously stick to passes this time, so we’ll see how that goes.

Still on schedule for a late Winter release!
