Well, I am about 7500 words into Witch Warden, the third book in my Ux-Blood trilogy. This first chapter is actually going very well. I am hitting all the points I wanted to make going along. I am particularly pleased about the potential for conflict I am incorporating into this first draft. I usually worry about emotional entanglements later, when I can better see the big picture. But right now, in the dialogue I am adding the importance of what’s not being said as well as what’s spoken out loud. I think it will set up the remaining chapters pretty well.
I plan to work on the cover soon. Just to throw ideas out. I need to work on the cover for A Child of Byne, my Ux-Blood novella due out in March, probably. Two covers! Yeesh! But at least they’ll have the same fonts and generally the same theme. The cover for the novella will be easier- providing I don’t have to do a back cover! Right now it’s only slated for ebook, particularly Kindle.
Anyway, I may include excerpts as this blog deepens. If anyone peeks in, they might find it interesting to see bits of a work in progress. I need to sit down and hit this regularly, though. So I may give myself days to do so. I am thinking Tuesdays and Fridays. And since today is Tuesday, there’s that done!
