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!
