Stealing Sorcery is now up to 143,000 words – or, conveniently, almost exactly 25% longer than Forging Divinity.
And it’s still not quite finished.
I’ve finished what I’d call the “critical path” – the main story arc is largely completed, although there are a lot of loose ends that need to be wrapped up. I also need to go back and do a lot of self-editing and surgery.
After that, it’s on to beta readers and my editor.
With the bulk of the story completed, I’ll most likely be finishing up the remaining content in the next couple weeks and putting the book up for preorder soon thereafter.
After that, it’ll be on to all sorts of other projects – including, but not limited to, the War of Broken Mirrors book 3.
