Re: Author's Check-in #11

Two chapters, and now someone else is dead. Someone vital, this time, not a minor character.

A main character has also been wounded severely, and is carrying on regardless. Not Fraya, this time.

Re: Author's Check-in #11

Uhm… in a way, I guess. ;) Rather brutally, actually, though we don't see the murder itself. (Don't particularly want an NC-17 rating on this book!)

^That is gorgeous, Blab! :D

Rewritten the evacuation bit tonight, as it felt off to me. Now, there's simply an ominous warning of worse to come at the end of that chapter.

Re: Author's Check-in #11

5k today, 2.5k yesterday. :D Part 1 of the event is now complete, with a lingering mystery over what happened right at the start there. ;) The team are certainly being put through their paces.

Three chapters (7.5k) done in book 10. :D I have to remember to put all the bitty descriptions in, stuff like what a Lavessian is and so on...

Something is brewing on Sikar Prime...

Re: Author's Check-in #11

OK, the Guide is updated and I've done some more edits and sent to RJ. No new chapters but we do have a dramatis personae and species guide. ;)

So... I could probably start writing book 10 tomorrow... :D

Re: The Orville - Season Two -- SPOILERS

We didn't get it this week, maybe next week... I wish Fox would put their schedule up more than a few days in advance.

Re: Author's Check-in #11

Up to chapter 23 in the put-everything-into-the-Guide phase. I've made a few tweaks (minor, mostly for clarity).

Might need to add one or more chapters a little later in the book... we kind of lose track of the kids while the big operation is ongoing for the last quarter of the book.
