So, Marin’s Codex is at ~35,000 words, give or take a bit. Not quite where I hoped to have it this week, but good enough that I don’t feel too bad with a holiday and dealing with root canals and the like this past week. More of the latter in the upcoming week (mostly the aftermath), so I’m half-expecting to be relatively slow.
The story is still coming along nicely, though I’m not entirely certain how much longer it’ll be. An interesting project, that’s for certain. Oh, and for what it’s worth, aside from the prologue and epilogue, the story will be entirely from the perspective of two characters, alternating as needed for the story.
Also, I’ve been working with an artist on artwork for Sisters of Radiance, despite the fact that it’s going to be at least 6 books down the road. A good part of this is because one of the main characters is an unusual race that I created for the setting, and I wanted to get her appearance right well ahead of time. The race is called the derran, and they’re a species descended of demons, but who’ve become mortal due to their time in the mortal world. Their skin color varies, but tends to be blues, reds, purples, or shades of gray to black, and they possess fiend-like tails. The artwork was done by IndyMBras, and the character is Lady Anar.
