Chapter 37 is finished, at 9,274 words for the chapter, 168,958 words total.
NETHERWORLD covers Chapters 21 through 40 in this story.
Since I work only in finished scenes, this means there are only ten scenes left in Pride’s Children: NETHERWORLD, and I’m getting excited – the last nine are scenes I’ve been looking forward to writing since 2000.
The title of this post is the title of the chapter.
Remember what happened when Icarus did it? Thought so.
I’ve updated the Table of Contents.
I have the cover worked out in my head after some serious thinking about how the three volumes will work together, and, as a bonus, have the idea of the third volume’s cover also percolating but basically decided. The covers will be posted as I get them close to finished.
And the minute all this is published, I will go to the following morning in the story and plunge right into Book #3 of the trilogy – the one that will end the whole story. I hope it will go faster than the 15 and 7 years of the first two.
Advance Reader Copies for reviewers
If you reviewed PURGATORY, I will write to you to see if you would like an electronic ARC of NETHERWORLD to read and review.
If you would like to review NETHERWORLD, but haven’t reviewed PURGATORY, feel free to contact me. I think it’s best to read PURGATORY before reading NETHERWORLD, as the latter starts just a few days after the first one, but they do stand alone even though they share the same main characters, and many secondary ones.
ARCs are extremely close to the finished product; I prefer not to send out unfinished work!
Prayers and good wishes gratefully accepted.
