I’m halfway through the first draft of my next book, something completely new that isn’t even in the Siglerverse. I’m doing 3k words a day against a thorough outline. The full book is slated at 80k words.
That’s right, it’s not an INFECTED sequel, and it’s not a GFL novel or novella (I start GFL Book V in July, due for release in September, 2014).
It’s an interesting novel to discuss, as I can’t tell what it’s about or There Will Be Spoilers. If you’ve seen my panels at Dragon*Con or attended a SiglerFest, you may have heard readings of this book and some limited discussion as to what it is about.
• Things that sparkle
• No, it’s not a vampire book.
• I said it’s not a vampire book, goddamit!
• DAMN YOUR EYES IT IS NOT A VAMPIRE BOOK!
The goal is to finish the first draft in a week, revise that draft in the last week of the month (a power read-through and polish), then kick it to my agent who already has plans for a content revision and for publishing targets.
We shall see, Xur … we shall see.
