See this? This is it, right here: the magic number. My publisher insists on every book being AT LEAST 55,000 words, to give you guys good crunchy substantial books to enjoy.
Well, yesterday I did it — I made it to the 55,000 word mark. And you know what the very best part about this is? I have quite a ways to go yet before the book’s done, before I’ve said everything I want to say about Rhoda Derry.
So I am pleased to say that everything else from here on out is just gravy. I’ve hit my word count deadline, so everything following this is icing on the cake — more lovely words to ensure that you guys, the kind folks who read my books, will get the best reading experience I can possibly give you. 44 Years In Darkness will be exciting, heartbreaking, uplifting, and a good solid read. I appreciate your patience while I work on it — and I promise you it will be worth the wait.
Keep an eye on this space for updates on 44 Years In Darkness, coming soon!
