While my last batch of applesauce for the season cooks, here is a writing progress update! I promised myself a writing day over the four day weekend, and I got more than 4,000 words written on Saturday! Definitely my best day in a while.
All Land of Winds things, I worked on:
Land of Winds Book 2 – title probably decided but to-be-announced later
The Swordsman – A novella set before Book 1 that explores Alexei Vidari’s background
Untitled Short Story – set between Books 1 and 2, tells more of Elof and Maimu’s story
Untitled Short Story – also set between Books 1 and 2, tells more of Alexei and Ilari’s story
I’ll post some snippets of these at some point! (Anyone interested in any of them in particular?) The Swordsman will hopefully be out in ebook form sometime in the first half of 2019, and after that the publication order would tentatively be Elof and Maimu’s story, Alexei and Ilari’s story, and then Book 2. I have no real idea of a timeline on any of that just now, depends on how quickly writing and editing go.
