This is a MONSTER book. And will probably top out at about 115K. Maybe a bit more.
There are, I think, about two and a half chapters left. I’m going to do my best to have it done by Wednesday, so watch this space (or any of my other social media really) for updates. Draft by August!
Now, that puts me at publishing sometime in October. So I’m going to say now that I’ll have a tentative release date of October 15th.  That’s written in warm Jell-O right now. I’ll know more once I have a draft.
The reason I want to have this done by Wednesday is because I’ll be leaving Thursday for Indie Bookfest! I want to have the manuscript with me so I can start edits. Now, here’s the deal — if you’re attending IBF, and you see me sitting with a red pen and a BIG sheaf of papers, you can ask for a peek. I’ll show you chapter one.
Once the book is in the can, I’ll be taking two weeks off.  Then, on August 12th, I start work on Blood Bound, my BDSM vampire novel. One week later, on August 19th, I start work on Bones of Earth.
Look, I have a plan. Let’s see how that turns out!
