The first draft of Book 3 is typed out, but I'm not happy with aspects of this. It grew too complicated and needs to be rewritten and simplified.
But I have a first draft. I can work from that. You can't work with nothing.
Oddly enough, I also figured out how to start Book 4 and did that also.
Now, I need to get to work editing Book 2, The Rule of Yonder. I'm going to let Vault of the Celestials sit aside for a while so that I can focus on TROY edits. That should help me see VOTC with a different perspective. The problems usually become more apparent and the solution clearer when the mind is not actively working on it yet is somehow keeping it in tune. The unconscious mind works on problems when we give it the freedom it needs, unrestricted by conscious thought.
Each book has presented its own challenges, but each has also been an interesting piece of the puzzle. This one, Vault of the Celestials, is a cornerstone piece of this series, as it delves deeply into the establishing the foundation for the overarching plot.
That's all I can say for now, except Yay! Another one done. I can't wait to reveal the cover for this. It turned out beautiful, but I can't yet. In a few months.
For now, you'll have to be satisfied with A New Beginning and The Rule of Yonder, which are both available for pre-orders. Click on the series page on this blog to learn more.
Thanks for reading!
