So, we've all been waiting for the next book, Lies in Blood, but with me working so hard on the revised editions this last 8 months, I haven't been focusing on writing as much as I would've liked to.
But, alas, I bring you good news.
Yesterday, I finished the revisions and sent the last book off to the editors. It is in their hands now. And today! I can focus on Lies in Blood.
All I have done this entire day is write, write and more write. There came a point during all my revisions, where I started to wonder if writing was what I truly wanted to do anymore. It seems like it was just a dull moment where editing continually got the better of me because, today, I am back on track, loving my job.
So, where are we up to with this next book?
I have written approximately 114 A4 pages (done and ready for the Beta Team), which, when translated to eBook pages, would be a lot more. As a paperback, it's roughly 98 pages. And this is only the first 1/4 of the book, if that. There is still so much to go. Those of you who enjoy a nice long read, that's exactly what you're going to get.
In the first 1/4, you will see some of the lies in the manor unravel. You will see Ara grow up more and become an adult. You will see someone confide in another and get hurt because of it. The truth about the Dagger of Yahanna (the one to kill Drake) will be unsheathed another notch, and people you thought you could trust will now reveal themselves as liars from the beginning, while those you were cautious of become allies.
I am very excited about Lies in Blood, and I think this one will have the plot line you've all been waiting for.
