That’s actually a lie. The first draft of book 4 of the Steel Empires series, Steel Time, is done. There’s still a ton of work for me to do, including cutting at least 10,000 words of length, but I can’t fix what doesn’t exist. And now it definitely exists.
It’s been a crazy year: worldwide, in my country, and in my own personal life. Even writing this book has been a wild ride, as I confront some of my own demons in the content and attempt some things I’ve never done before in the writing itself.
But at this point, the Steel Empires series, projected at seven books, is over halfway done. I’ve also written three novels in three years, which not many people who also have full-time jobs can claim. So I’m taking this win.
No rest for the wicked, though. See those pages behind my computer? I’m hard at work on line edits for book 3, Steel Blood, at the same time! I can’t wait to share both books with all of you.
Want to help me celebrate? If you haven’t checked them out yet, the first books in the Steel Empires series are available for you to enjoy!
