Book 1 (Wanted) is still waiting for the results of the final round of beta reading (due after the Easter hols). Then it just needs formatting and prettifying ready to push the button later in the month.
Book 2 (Hunted) is now underway and plotted out. I’ve signed up to Camp NanoWrimo for April, http://www.campnanowrimo.org with a target of 50k words (less what’s already written) I’ve decided I need to be pushed more, and this seems like a good way to do it. That would have me on track for finishing the first draft sometime in May – assuming I keep up the pace – which would be good. Again I’m aiming for a total around 90,000 words (Wanted is 92,000)
April is actually quite a busy month, with a trip to Liverpool for location scouting, and a production of The Admirable Crichton, so I think it’s going to be tougher than the regular Nano in November. We shall see…
