I wanted to drop in and share with y’all something about which I’m really, really pleased. The first draft of The Shift, sequel to Apache Dawn, is nearly complete. That’s right! This month, through about 5 minutes ago, I have written a grand total of 94,886 words. Add the 30,000 or so words I wrote in February and you can see we’re getting real close to that 150,000 word goal I set for myself.
My previous one-month writing record was 72,000, set back in January when Dragon really clicked and I was on fire. Now? I blew past that a week ago. And there’s still nearly a week left in April!
Been spending some time fiddling with cover designs for The Shift, as well–maybe I’ll post some sketches for you soon. As for now, I’m starting to get together the outline for the sequel to Sic Semper Tyrannis (and the planned series conclusion to the Alea Jacta Est storyline).
Hey, I said planned. As in not definite. Erik Larsson has a way of surprising even me. We’ll see what the future has in store for him next month, when begin to write book 3.
Is there something in particular you’d like to see happen or explained in Book 3? If so, let me know!
