Well, the cover is mostly ready, at least. I chose an “angry sky at morn,” along with a reconstructed Capitol building ensconced in shadow to signify some of the challenges that yet lie ahead for Peter Baird and the nation. It may receive some “tinkering” before the book is finally published, of course.
But for those of you eagerly awaiting the next “mile,” be assured that I have started the book. I haven’t gotten very far, sad to say, but it is begun at least. I do plan to work on it a bit this evening, so we’ll see whether or not I can get chapter one finished.
In the meantime, I’m still giving some attention to Anarchy, moving toward the completion of chapter four, as well as The Blood-Eater Coven, advancing through chapter 18.
Sad to say, I’m at an impasse with both A Glass Half-Empty and Descent, so I don’t know how long it will be until I can get those books done. I hope to make some progress on them, because I do want to work on other projects as well in 2014, and I’d like to avoid leaving them to languish for so long when they’re both easily half-done.
Nevertheless, I’m at the mercy of inspiration. Perspiration will get projects done to a certain point, but it still requires that little spark to fan something into flame when the heat of it has begun to wane.
Other than that, have a happy Christmas!
