It’s October 2022, and at the end of November, 2022, Cast in Eternity will be published. It was a book written entirely during Covid lockdown. I wonder if, a decade from now, I’ll remember that as clearly. I’m mostly hoping I won’t.
I try to post the first chapter of an upcoming book a month before release day. So: this is the post for that. The first chapter of Cast in Eternity is here, but you can also find it on the bibliography page for the CAST novels.
I am continuing to write, both Sagara and West words. The Sagara words are for the as yet untitled Magic School book — but I am sad to say that my Magic School book is … not quite what I thought it would be. So far. Yes, it takes place in the Academia, and yes, there is both magic and school, but, well.
The West novel, Hunter’s Redoubt, is in the final stretch for that book — which means that the last arc for the book has started. I had so hoped to be finished this book sometime in October, but I think it’s likely five or six chapters from the end, and in West terms that’s 50 – 60k words, not the 30k I was kind of hoping for. So, this book will probably be as long as Battle was.
For those Canadians here, Happy Thanksgiving!
You do know that the only people who are upset by length are the publishers, right? The rest of us are chanting “More, More, More”!
