Weekly Update

Just a quick update.

The Goodreads giveaway for Vocation is open now. Enter to win a free, signed copy of my second novel!

I am also getting my new writing desk in working order. I can't wait to show everyone what I have planned. After almost four years of serious writing, I will now, for the first time, have my own writing space. Wait until you see it! The theme of my new work space is awesome, if I may say so myself. 

And I am plugging away at Incorruptible. Here is the word count . . . 

The first draft is almost complete. I have approached this novel in a different way. Usually I edit while I write, but this time, I wrote and wrote and wrote, with very little editing. I imagine the first edit will be rough, but after that, things will get easier. I actually enjoy the editing process, but I think some of my original story will end up cut. Even certain characters may not make it to the final copy. Characters always surprise you. Sometimes they start out as major and end up minor, and sometimes you are totally surprised when someone pops up out of nowhere and becomes essential to the plot.

I am nearing the ending now, and it is not the ending I had anticipated. That is really new to me. In my first two books, I knew the ending very early on. This time, even I was surprised.

That's all for now.
