Manic Monday

411, the first episode of The Where are our Children Serial Novel is done.

Well, kind of.

The second draft clocked in at over 34,000 words for 10 chapters.  That's nearly 350,000 word total, epic fantasy like numbers for a completed novel. Again, I don't see the finished product finishing nearly that high, but I'm not going try to condense it. The words are flowing as I had intended them to. This is what I want. And I'm having a ball doing it. That's something that I NEVER thought I would say about writing again. 

Anyone, Monday is going to be CRAZY. I'm going into polish mode, waxing this draft until I can make it shine, then try and format it and then make it fit through Smashword's meatgrinder tomorrow night.

Wish me luck...I'm going to need it.

In the meantime, I  designed the covers for the first 10 stories that I like to bill as Short Tales of Fiction, with a 5 volume cover and a 10 volume cover. 12 releases all together in this first wave. Each short tale will appear as a stand alone story, then it will appear again in within a 5 story volume, and one final time in a 10 story volume. I'll explain more about all of this series as we get closer to it's release. This series begins immediately after A House of Chains is completed.
