I get asked at least once a week, sometimes in person, and frequently by my mother, when the next Slayers book will be out. So I thought I’d make an official update.
The good news is that I’m on about page 300. I haven’t gotten anything written the last two weeks because I was doing edits for The Girl Who Heard Demons. (One of the beta readers requested the book end with a kiss, and she may have a valid point, so I may rewrite the ending scene tomorrow and then I’ll send it off to the copyeditor.)
Speaking of copyediting, I just got the copyedits for The Wrong Side of Magic and my publisher wants them by Friday, so that’s what I’ll be doing this week.
But then I’m going to go back to Slayers 3 and finish it. I have to, because I have to have How I Met Your Brother written and to an editor by June of 2016.
I’ve realized that Slayers 3 is going to be a very long book, because I’m not even to the climax scene yet .
And I still don’t know who Tori will end up with, so yeah, I’ve got to figure that out too. And maybe I’ve added another character that I shouldn’t have–because really, did the series need any more characters? No, no it didn’t, but (spoiler alert) maybe there’s another dragon lord around.
And I’ve got to do something with Senator Ethington, because I’ve mentioned him in the first two books. And you know, you can’t have a gun in act one unless it goes off by act three. The same could be said of corrupt Senators, right?
Sooo, that the update.
Oh, and did I mention that my son is getting married the beginning of Oct? Someone please send me some of their extra time . . .
