But I like it. And I'm really proud of it.
This book holds the largest cast of characters I've ever worked with in a single title. It's the longest single title I've ever published that isn't a collection of shorter books. And I'm really happy with how the climax to the series turns out.
There's a whole chunk of my life in this one. 143,000 words, plus another 9,000 of deleted scenes -- Amazon estimates the page count at 545! That should keep you guys fed for a couple days! I hope! (Don't read fast.)
I am trying to get more efficient at storytelling because I would like to publish more books each year. I'd be really happy if I could get two more titles out in 2019. But the year is almost halfway gone already. (So soon! Ack!) We shall see how my methods fare in the months ahead.
For now, I am tinkering on several projects and taking a short rest until the end of the month. I will post more about what I'm up to and hopefully some fun chapters of something in the coming weeks. :)
