I spent the weekend working on revisions and managed to finish up five more chapters. The first fourteen chapters required more work than the last seventeen or so just because I substantially rewrote two early subplots and added some more scenes I felt were missing. I already scheduled both chapters for this week — today’s and Thursday’s.
I know I said I’d have another sample chapter up for a second poll, but, ha, a funny thing happened. I wrote the Fool Me Twice sample and, um, I want to write it. I started working on the plot sketch and it’s looking like it might be about as long as the first two books of Mad World which means I think I might break it into two books overall.
If I break it into two, I’ll work on Broken Girl in between. That is…also a really long project that might end up as two books because of the narrative I planned. Right now, those look like the next two major projects. I won’t know what kind of schedule or release date until I dig into the draft. I still need to work out the subplots and timeline which I’m going to be doing at the same time I finish Book 2 revisions. Hoping to start writing by mid-late August.
Remember as you read Book 2 to note what characters you’re enjoying. I’ve written some bread crumbs in for Book 3 so I have lots of options. I have my Liason/Carson story, so I just need to fill out the rest of it.
Enjoy this week’s chapters and remember to reply and leave a review!
