A quick note to those of you who have been following the progress of Summer’s End. Just before noon today, I typed ‘The End’. The first draft is now finished. It took a little bit longer than anticipated, but it was so satisfying to complete the story. The word count at the moment is just under 34.000 words, so we can call this a proper
novella petite novel.
I’m now anxiously awaiting the verdict of my wife. Considering I’ve used The S Word (aka soul) three times, I’m expecting the worst. (She hates The S Word and I do usually try to avoid it, but this story just begged for it.) 😉
Now that I’ve finished the first draft I can confidently aim for a mid December release, just in time for Christmas. Speaking of which… here’s the cover for the Christmas mini-anthology I’m putting together. Just as Sweat, it features stories by the talented likes of Erzabet Bishop, Laila Blake, Cheyenne Blue and Lucy Felthouse.
Like the hat?
I know this is a bit rushed, but I must go to Ikea again… 😉
