True story.


I’ve seriously been just pounding away at the Fifth Key manuscript. I’ve written more than 60,000 words in the past three weeks, bringing the total up to around 110,000 words at this point. Things are beginnig to come to a head now, so soon we should be able to start tieing off some of the plot threads I’ve had dangling about here and there. I’ve really been going gangbusters though, doing 2k-5k a day on most days and the juices have been flowing the whole time. I’ve only had to pause and reflect a couple times, so I think it’s going to finish out pretty well.

I also think I’ve got all of the big pieces into place, and all of the plot threads picked back up again. So at this point, it is just a matter of crafting the last few scenes. I have a lot to do, but I think I have it all sorted out now and just need to sit down and get through it.


Still on target to finish by the end of September though, which will give editing (I’ve already given the first 100,000 words to my editor so she can begin) and test readers almost two more full months over what we had last year finishing the Fourth Key!


Okay, I need to get back to work, but before I go, I wanted to say there is a sale going on at the Kalijor Press Book Store now through Friday the 21st of September (2012). If you pop over and fill your cart up with Kalijor goodness, then use coupon code: PIRATA then you can save 15% on your entire order. A great opportunity to pick up the hard covers, if you don’t have a set yet. 🙂


Alrght, I’m off for real now, thanks folks. I’ll return to more regular/frequent updates once the book is finished. Until then, I’ll talk at you the next time I come up for air!


End of Line…
