April's Writing Update

Despite being very quiet here, work has progressed steadily, if somewhat slower than anticipated.

Markan Sword - eighteen chapters and 80 thousand words into the first draft.  This is roughly the halfway point, with a target of 150k words (I usually overrun this), but quite a bit behind schedule.  But the book is shaping up nicely and should (fingers crossed) be ready sometime this year.

Markan Throne - the re-edit of this book is almost complete and the revised version will be posted on Amazon and Smashwords in the very near future.

Sylph Language - this was originally supposed to be put into a book format and released last year, but other projects caused me to set this aside. A lot of people have expressed interest in learning more about the sylph's language.  Though the present mass of notes, jottings and scribblings makes perfect sense to me, I suspect not to anyone else. This will probably become a series of blog postings instead!

Gifted Avenger - the third Sallis ti Ath novella. At the moment this is nothing more than a title and a very hazy outline.  Watch this space!

And that is about all I have to say on the update.  I'll keep plodding along!


  1. Hey Nicholas, first time visitor and follower and great to meet you! Good luck with the writing and the plodding along.

    1. Good to meet you too, Stephen! A daily plod is best of course. Oh - and thanks for the follow on Twitter too!
