In other news, my progress on Attuned has been continuing steadily, but it’s turning out to be much longer than I expected. I normally stick within about +/- 10% of my outline length, but due to the nature of the story as a school novel in a new setting, I’m finding that it’s important to add a lot more details than I’d originally accounted for.
So, I’ve got two options at this point – either finish the book at a much higher length than expected, or I can try to split it into two books. I’m not settled on any specific approach yet; for the moment, I’m just going to keep writing. If there’s a good natural place to end a book, I’ll revise toward making that conclusion be satisfying and make sense. If not, I’ll just end up publishing something much longer.
Here’s an overall status report:
Attuned (tentative title; new “magical school” style novel) – 130,000 / ~200,000? words
Unannounced title (something completely different; co-authored with Jessica Richards) – 30,000 / ~100,000 words
Defying Destiny – 2,000 / 150,000 words
The current estimated release schedule is as follows:
Attuned – January 2017?
Defying Destiny – Mid 2017
Unannounced title – Late 2017
