Crisis of Faith is up to ~16,000 words, but as I mentioned last week, it isn’t quite sparking my interest in the way I’ve been hoping. On the other hand, Mortal Gods is up to a bit over 20,000 words and is coming much more easily. If I could convince my mind to do all that work on just one of the two projects, that’d be ideal, but there isn’t much to be done about it.
The artist who I commissioned to do art for Heaven’s Fallen estimated he’d have it done toward the end of the upcoming week, but like all things artistic, that could change. The sketches I’ve seen have me looking forward to it, and at this rate I’m likely to need to commission a piece for Mortal Gods soon as well. Speaking of commissions, I’ve also arranged for Sarah Goer to narrate the audiobook of Heaven’s Fallen, once it’s seen the editor.
In other news, I’m also a little distracted because I’m preparing a presentation for a group of authors. It’s mostly a discussion of the difference between various fantasy and science fiction genres, major elements of them, and the like, but it’s extensive enough to be eating a decent amount of time. I’m hoping to have it done today, which should allow me to focus on the books more.
Anyway, I’m glad to be making progress, even if it isn’t on the project I originally planned on. I’ll let everyone know once I have more to say about the books!
