…And I’m back! Welcome to Outpost Dire, home to the shared Dire Universe of epic, grimdark fantasy, military sci-fi, thrillers, and more! Let’s dive right in.
To the point, I’m plugging along on my 2nd draft of THOLAC. It has now grown to approximately 140,000 words. Honestly, it doesn’t feel that long to me, that many words. However, it is a fantasy, so there is a bunch of leeway. I have a feeling by the time this second draft is done, it will be close to 160,000. I’ve got about 8 more chapters to do (epilogue and prologue included with count).
Shifting gears, I am working with a book cover designer for Flawed to the Core. Once I get that and everything is tweaked the way I like, I’ll move forward with publishing it. My plan is to have it out later this year! You can check out her work and services on The Dust Jacket.
That’s it for this round, short and sweet. I shall return…
