So maybe, just maybe, you are wondering about the status of the next Darkslayer book. Well, here is what is going on. I'll recieve the final edit of Volume 2 by February 15th, 2012. The ebook should be ready for release about one month after that. The paperback should take about 2 months, give or take a month. I can't wait to get the book out because it has taken entirely too long. But, Bish Happens.

Volume 3 is in the initial writing phases. I have written 90,000 words since November 1st. My goal has been 1000 words per day and I've met that. So the rough draft is on pace to be finished by the end of February, unless Bish wants it to become longer. The editing phase takes as long as writing the book. It's the nature of the beast. The best thing is the fact that my first trilogy is almost complete, but The Darkslayer will not be over.

The Darkslayer will go on, Volume after Volume, as long as I can stand it. I have a hundred stories within the miserable world of Bish I want to write. So, this first trilogy is only the beginning. Wasn't it Rocky that said, "Nothing's over til it's over." That's right, the beast inside will keep me writing and it'll be a long time before it tires out.

Slay the Day,
