Queen’s Journey is up to just over 110,000 words, and entering the final stages. I think I’ll finish the rough draft this week, but no promises. I won’t know until it’s completed, after all! I also did a test run with another editor which went well, so I should have it out in January, unless disaster strikes. We’ll see how that goes, and I’ll update the release date once everything is scheduled.
I’ve also been doing a fair amount of writing on Broken Chains, I wrote 30,000 words on it in November due to Nanowrimo, and I’ve continued on it this past week. I’m not sure what’s going to happen with the story right now, but I’m sharing it one chapter every Friday on My Patreon. Now that I’m going non-exclusive with Audible, I may be giving out copies of my new audiobooks on the upper tiers as well, I’m doing a test run of that this month.
Speaking of audiobooks, let’s give an update on Dusk Gate. Jessica Nahikian is the narrator who I selected to record it, and she finished the audio this past week. After the delay with Hives & Heroism, I’m not planning to wait for Audible to approve it fully. Instead, as soon as Audible confirms that they’re changing it to a non-exclusive contract, I’m going to upload it to a distributor for other sites. Assuming it works they way the test I did this past week, this means that it should be up on most other distributors in 2-4 weeks (Libro.fm, Chirp, Kobo, Nook, and plenty of others). This is from the time I upload it, obviously.
Anyway, that’s the update for this week! I hope everyone is doing well!
