Project Updates: Missive from The Allison Lee Chronicles
It feels like forever since I've posted a proper update on any of my ongoing writerly endeavors. Today, I have a double shot's worth of info to share!
Reading from The Blood of Faeries
How about some accountability on book three in The Allison Lee Chronicles? Right now, I'm neck-deep in dictating the rough draft. So far, so good. I'm about ten chapters in, which puts me just a hair over a quarter of the way through the draft. I'm a planner, probably to such an extent as to drive the pansters out there nuts. But what can I say? It works great for me. Even with a "real" job and young children running amok, I can knock out the rough draft fairly quickly without too much muss or fuss. Heck, for The Blood of Faeries I even planned out my editing process, which went wonderfully.
Book III: The Gory Details
Okay, book nerds, if you like stats, this next bit is for you.
· Word count:23,500
· Chapters completed:10
· Average chapter length: 2350
· Estimated draft completion date: Early January 2023
I would probably have the book three draft done in December 2022, but The Blood of Faeries is pounding at the office door.
Book II News
I just received the final galley for The Blood of Faeries. To put it mildly, this is super-duper-supercalifragilisticexpialidocious-extraordinarily exciting. It also means I'll be pulled away from book three to give The Blood of Faeries a critical read through or three. Also, I'll need to rev up the engine of the promo juggernaut, so busy days ahead.
That's why up above is a brief reading for your enjoyment to whet your appetite for The Blood of Faeries.
