I’m hoping to finish up with both of these by the end of next week. *fingers crossed*
I just finished Chapter 20 in this one. I pretty much hit on the major climax of the book already, and everything from here is resolution, which basically means I’m resolving all the points of conflict that I introduced earlier in the story. I’m not sure how many chapters are left, but I’m at 53,700 words now, and I don’t expect to hit over 65,000 words. So that hopefully gives you an idea of how close I am to the end.
I was going to put this one on pre-order, but because I don’t want to wait all the way to August to get it out, I’m not going to do a pre-order on this one. I’d like to get it out in July. I already have my editor reserved to work on it in June.
This one is quickly nearing the 50,000-word mark, which will make it a full-length novel. I got almost 47,500 words in. I have just reached Chapter 20. I should have either 3 or 4 chapters left. So this puts me at an estimate of 54,000 words total for this book.
I have struggled a lot with the title of my story in this anthology, and I finally just settled on The Shy Groom. I really can’t come up with anything else that fits. So The Shy Groom, it is.
During June, Janet and I will be going through this book, and we’re expecting to have it to our publisher in July. From there, it shouldn’t be too long before it’s out.
