Works in Progress: Table of Stone and Forged in Fire, week nineteen

I’m late. I know. We had a big day yesterday — we went out to Universal Studios for the day, and by the time we got home, all I wanted to do was shower and fall down. Tired Liz is TIRED.

And tired Liz is also confused, because I did all my usual Sunday stuff today, so of course today is Sunday, right?

No. It’s Monday. And the blog is late. Oops.

Had a decent writing week for Table of Stone, and learned something new about writing a series. If you’re going to write a series that takes place in three different time periods… write the earliest one FIRST.  I wrote four chapters of “This is how things really started” that predate all the Carolingian chapters… and that change things in both the Carolingian chapters and the Victorian ones.

Needless to say, in between writing and fixing… there weren’t a lot of words made on Forged in Fire. 

Table of Stone
Swords of Charlemagne, Book 4

80753 / 85000 (95.00%)

Forged in Fire
Heir to the Firstborn, Book 2

72650 / 85000 (85.47%)

However, I’m now at three chapters left in Table of Stone, so I’ll be done with that… soon. Soonish. Before my new end-of-June deadline, anyway. Which is also when I hope to have Forged in Fire done, so I can get through edits and have it ready to go for Indie Bookfest. At least, that’s my plan.

(Stop laughing. I do so have a plan!)

My plan for right at this moment, though, is to finish preparing for the panels that I’ll be moderating at Oasis this weekend. Which requires me to… well… end this blog post and get on with that.

Catch me in the Dealer’s Room at Oasis! I might have cake!
