The new book is at 17,000 words and so far feels incredibly easy to write, and a lot of fun. It helps that one of the main characters is a complete screw up. So far he's been beaten up twice, threatened once and about to be arrested. No doubt it'll get even worse before things improve!
On the HE WHO FIGHTS front, it's been four weeks since I sent it off to the editor. He said he'd take between four and five weeks so I could get his feedback any day now. I'm not going to chase, despite the temptation. When it comes it comes. I just hope he doesn't say its shit.
But whatever will be will be.
