The book that I referred to for months as “the book I am not supposed to be writing”, I am no longer writing. Yay!
The current working title is actually Across a Jade Sea. I don’t know how long it is, because I wrote it out longhand, but it runs over 800 handwritten pages. By my best calculation, it is long enough and then some — possibly the longest first draft I’ve written yet. So I have now written ten novels. A nice round number, wouldn’t you say?
Next I take a little break to work on my website some more, before starting revisions to the last one I wrote.
