I'm a little breathless. A marathon writing spree last night of around 8,000 words and my futuristic zombie novel is finally done.
Honestly, I was beginning to wonder if I would ever finish!
Even though I started the novel last year, I had to break away from it numerous times to work on the AS THE WORLD DIES revisions. I took a break during the holidays, hoping to get back to it at the beginning of the year, but ended up sick and delirious for almost a month and a half.
And then I had to set it aside to get UNTOLD TALES VOLUME 2 ready for publication.
Finally, I was able to sit down and fix up all the stuff I had goofed up when sick (and kept trying to write anyway) and work out the final plot threads I had scrambled.
I started sending off four chapter increments to the test readers last week and so far the feedback has been glowingly positive (though I have a few small things to tidy up).
I'm going to go over the last few chapters probably this evening, then send off the rest of the book to the test readers. Once they're done and send in their feedback, I'll revise again. Then Felicia Sullivan will get the book to edit.
Meanwhile, I have the SIEGE Blog Tour to get ready for and a workshop in Houston this Friday.
In case you were wondering, my next writing project is THE MIDNIGHT SPELL with Kody Boye.
Hopefully, sometime early next month THE LAST BASTION OF THE LIVING will have a cover.
At this point I'm looking at an early summer release. Once the release date is sorted out, I'll announced.
But for now, I'm taking my tired brain and body to bed for some much needed rest.
