So as you can see by the shiny red word count meter over there —-> I’ve completed the first draft of Arcana Revived Book Four, Mutation. It topped just over 100,000 words, making it the shortest of the novels so far, though there’s a lot of damn good action-packed adventure in those words. And hopefully an ending that just might make you cry.
I’m not sure what’s next for me right this minute. I’ve got plenty of work left to do getting Manifestation ready, but some of that is currently out of my hands since I have to rely on others for editing, formatting, and cover art. I’ve got Book Two, Contamination to revise. I’ve also got a bunch of short stories to work on. Then there’ll be a Book Five starting at some point. I have absolutely no idea what it’ll be about. Well, that’s a lie. I have a list of “goals” already written up for things I still want to accomplish. But those goals are just the path; the central conflict probably won’t appear until I start writing, as it has in the past.
We’ll see how things go. For now, I’m going to sit back for a bit and revel in my accomplishment.
