It’s been forever since I posted a comprehensive update on my writing, so long in fact, that I don’t remember writing it. Without further ado, here’s what’s happened and what will be going on for the next six months. I’ll be adding to the list, but the items below are recently done, or already in the works.I took the raw draft of book three as my date to NaNoWriMo this year and managed to cobble together just over 60k worth of new material from it. I’m still writing, but I’ve won this year’s challenge. With any luck, this means book 3 will be in the hands of beta-readers early next year.That’s it for now. Cheers!J. I. RogersOriginal link
