So, I am proud to say that this year for NaNoWriMo, I have written 94,663 words, almost twice the target of 50,000 words! Adding that to the 17,212 I wrote in October, and Snowfall’s draft was wrapped up at 111,875 words!
So what’s next? Well, next is me catching my breath for a few days! I didn’t take a single day off this month (not even Thanksgiving), so I’m going to spend a few days with my wife and kids before I kick in to my next project. I’ll be taking Rising Thunder, Thunderbolt, and Storm’s Break and giving them a pass with the editing process I used for Songs of the Northlands. Being completely self published, edited, revised, so on and so forth, I’ve had to learn a lot while on the road of being an author, and a lot of what I learned was in genre expectations, prose, consistency, and more.
So I am going to go through the three books that form the Warrior’s Trilogy, and giving them a solid editing so that I can release them as a single volume. Now, there will be some minor changes, mostly as to what content I decide to keep in the final cut, but the complete, unedited versions will still be available from Amazon as the stand-alone volumes of the trilogy. The story and chronology will all stay the same, but there were a few places that were a bit more graphic than I would prefer in retrospect, so those bits will get… a good sanding and coat of polish, as it were.
In any case, I hope that you’re as excited about the the upcoming Mage’s Trilogy that will be my main focus for the next year and a half or so as I am, and I hope to see you all back in the world of Erde very soon! The first book of the Mage’s Trilogy, Snowfall, is set to be released on April 1st, 2019!
