Hard at Work
As you can see in the picture I'm hard at work on the novel (that's me with the tail).
Well I will be, once the new year strikes. Things settle down for me and hopefully I can find some time to write every day again. 2,000 words a week-day, 10,000 words per week or bust. That's my resolution. If I can hold to that I'll have the first draft finished by some time in February. Right now I'm shooting for 100,000 - 120,000 words and I'm almost 10% finished.
Then with re-writes, edits and such, with any luck I can have a query together by April or May.
I'll share a few snippets from the book when there are more people visiting to share with. I'm especially happy with the chapter where the villain Otto (Octavian in his home-country) Dragomir first comes to the fore and you can get a taste for who he really is.
