Progress report - book 4

After stripping out about 2000 words last week because I decided to go in a different direction, I'm happy to say I've reached 90,000 words on the first draft of Kinshield's Redemption. For comparison, book 1 is 121,000 words long, and books 2 and 3 are about 90,000 words each, so book 4 will probably be somewhere in the middle, length wise.

I hope to have the first draft done in the next couple weeks, and then I get to start revisions. That's my favorite part -- filling in the fine detail, adjusting plot points here and there, messing with my characters (Gavin in particular), and making sure that if he sets his sword on the desk, it doesn't inexplicably appear on the dresser. hehehe. After that, a quick edit for spelling, and it's off to the beta readers!

I'm on target for an August 2013 release. :-)
