Queen of Ice is coming along well, and I’m up to a bit more than 54,000 words. I’d guess that I’m about halfway done, more or less, though this is the first draft. I’m curious how things will go from this point, because a few of my plans have shifted slightly as I’ve written, particularly since Anara and Essryl refuse to stay in their neat little boxes.
I want to thank all of you who bought or borrowed The Avatar’s Flames this past week, and especially those of you who reviewed the book. Without you, I couldn’t afford to so much as edit my books, let alone get the cover art and the other things I do. The reviews help other people decide whether or not to read my books, and that’s a huge part of what makes them successful or not, so seriously, thank you.
I’ve started considering what I want to write after I finish Through the Fire‘s first arc as well, and it’s currently up in the air. I listed six possibilities in my newsletter to my subscribers this past week which I’m debating on, and I’m heavily tempted to continue Lilith’s Shadow next. Another major option is Broken Chains, but I’m also considering returning to Ancient Dreams to deal with Tyria’s church, or even to work on a science fiction space opera story. I haven’t made a decision yet, but one will likely be made within a few weeks.
Anyway, that’s it for this week! I hope everyone is doing great.
