I'm nearly at the end of the first proper draft of this book and the wordcount, for those of you interested, is 51,000. To be precise it's 50,967, but what the heck.
Chapter 10 is done and the shooting didn't go as I had planned, but much better. Someone still got shot, but by a different person with a different weapon and instigated by someone not utterly insane.
Chapter 11 will now see the aliens arrive at the planet with a new weapon and...Nah I'm not telling you that. It does look as thought there will be at least two more chapters and maybe three as I have to get a wedding in as well as a fight involving the bride which she wins.
It's looking good and as I no longer have a word count to aim for I'm just letting the story take me where it will, providing it ends up where I want it to.
The ebook publishing is proceeding and the website design is coming along. Sadly, we have lost one novel due to personal problems, but we may well pick up another in its place.
That's all for now. Have a great couple of days and see you on Wednesday.
