Echo: The Weekly News

Word Count, Vol.3:  96, 529.  Thanks to All Who Bought Echo!  And BIG THANKS to Melissa, Barbara, Ian, Lorna, [anonymous], Lisa, Meg, Matt, Bobby, F.T., Alice Smith, Leslie Coop, Richard, Shauna, Sydney, Pam, Jessica, Angela and now Kiesa for posting AMAZING reviews on Amazon!!!  Ashley too for the 5 star on Nook!

News:  I’m done with the big battle-climax in Volume 3 and I’m currently drafting the epilogue, which I hope will be just as explosive, but in more of a philosophical way.  This book bounces around between Verus and Atriya, so a lot of the chapters end up being shorter as they try to create thematic parallels between their two journeys.  (I’m closing in on my 53rd chapter!  Odin’s Raven!)  I’m about a month past my goal to release a book every six months, but I’m kind of okay with it.

My editing sword is out and swinging:  I believe I’ve been chopping around 3k words a week, but two weeks ago I actually outpaced my drafting, which is 5k words a week, and ended up chopping 7k for a net loss of 2k that week.  My goal before I get out of school in the next 20 or so months is to finish the Echo series, and also have at least volume 1 of Gul’Thak Barbarian Valley girl published.

Anyways, if you are a writer, I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing!!!
