I’m halfway through writing Chapter Eight, so I’m maintaining my safety margin. I’d like to increase it, but for some reason this story is slower going than Ethshar usually is.
My best estimate — which could easily be way off — is that this story will run about twelve chapters, and 30,000-35,000 words. Which is technically, by modern standards, a novella, rather than a novel. Sorry about that.
The old pulp magazines used to advertise anything over 20,000 words as “a complete novel in this issue!” though, so there’s precedent. And it may wind up longer than I expect.
Chapter Four has now been posted.
Chapters Five through Nine are paid for; Chapter Ten is 90% covered.
I’ve written Chapters Five and Six, and I’m halfway through Chapter Seven — I got held up by a plot problem for awhile, but I think I have it beat now.
Chapter Three is now online.
Chapters Four through Nine are paid for.
Chapters Four through Six are written; I’m a page or so into Chapter Seven.
We’re rolling along pretty well, though I need to get going on the actual writing.
Chapter Two of The Sorcerer’s Widow is now online.
Chapters Three through Eight are now paid for and will be posted weekly.
I’m almost done writing Chapter Six. Yes, I should be further along. I’m not.
Thanks for your support!
