NED FIREBREAK'S FINISHED
Posted on December 31, 2012
The book is done! It came in at 84,445 words.The last few chapters came together so well, and I found it amazing! The characters were so invested in their parts, and the dialogue just rolled out and onto the page.
Now I will put it aside for two weeks before coming back to it for a strong edit and revise session before shipping it out to betareaders in February. There are elements that need to emphasized and teased out in the early chapters thanks to some of the key plot points revealed in the end.
Aiming for an early April release.
The cool thing is that it reads as a complete stand-alone book, but leaves it open for a sequel called Ned Firebreak and the Nether Sword.
I do have a bonus chapter to write which has Fairbanks casting off tons of pun spells right and left, but I will do that over the next few weeks in bits and pieces. My goal is to have him really crank out the pun magic and use over twenty spells during his battle.
Up next: FRACTURED!
