Word Count, Vol.4: Over 200k. I’ve decided to stop counting until I’m finished.
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, Kiesa, Ross, Keith, Alice, Daina, Daniel, Yolanda, Trace, Books4me, Vince, Laurie, and DAE for posting AMAZING reviews on Amazon!!! Ashley too for the 5 star on Nook! I’d like to reiterate that leaving a positive review for any author is the equivalent of leaving $100 tip at a restaurant (I know some authors who’d actually pay that much for a good review). Although I sincerely appreciate any love you leave me on Amazon, please consider leaving a review for ANY author you know, simply as a random act of kindness…because it’ll mean the world to ’em! (A good place to start are those I’ve listed—a few of them are authors. Let me know if you want me to put you in touch with ’em and I’ll be more than happy to do so! And no, you don’t need to have purchased their book to leave a review on Amazon; you simply needed to have used Amazon at one time or another to leave what’s called an “unverified purchase” review. If you purchased their book at the store or on another eReader, you can still leave a review for them.)
News: Still plugging away at Volume 2. Unlike Volume 1, this one is a lot smoother and isn’t taking as much time (but probably will take as much time in the end, because it’s roughly twice as long as Volume 1). As far as Volume 4 goes, I’m in the middle of the final confrontation, and within it, I’m gonna have to reflect the culmination of the philosophical build as well as the logical plotlines, then I’ll have to tie a neat ribbon around all of it so it can go down smoothly in a reader’s mind. I know what’s going to happen; I just have to be extra attentive so that it all flows smoothly together.
That’s it for now! If you’re a writer, then I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing!
