I’ve been getting myself out of my writing drought bit by bit, and have Queen’s Gambit up to just a little over 7500 words. Not as much as I’d like, but certainly better than nothing! There’s going to be a lot to resolve in this book, and I really want to do it right. This isn’t necessarily the end of Lilith’s journey, but it’s hopefully going to be a good spot to rest while I work on other projects.
With any luck, we’re also a bit over a week from the release of Chosen of Chaos! Yes, there’s two weeks left on the pre-order, but that’s primarily in case my editor doesn’t get it back to me in time. I’m confident that I’ll be getting it back in time to upload it this week, and I’m excited to see what people think of Evelyn. She’s probably the single most powerful protagonist I’ve written since Ancient Dreams, so challenging her isn’t the easiest thing in the world, but I enjoyed writing it a lot.
I hope you all have a great week!
Edit: Apparently luck may not be with me. After I went to bed last night (this post scheduled), the editor emailed me and let me know that they’d lost power and were in a rural area that got hit by the recent storms in the southern USA. This means that I won’t get Chosen of Chaos back until power is up, so it could be delayed to the 7th or even longer. If it gets close, I’ll consider uploading the version I sent to the editor… we’ll see. Personally, I’m more concerned about their safety than hitting an arbitrary deadline.
