Kill It With Fire

Word count for 'Kill It With Fire'

It seems I can’t stay away from Kilchester.  After discovering the place with Clint in The Defective Detective and then getting embroiled in The Dali Deception it seems that my heart belong to that twisted mass of concrete, glass and madness.

The last time I posted it was about my next kids book which is pretty much ready to publish now but writing Violet & co once more makes me want to spend more time in Kilchester and, in writing this novella sequel to Dali more and more ideas have been tumbling out into my virtual notebook. I’ve even got a tentative title for the next novel…

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves… where are we today… where are we right now?

Right now, as you’ll see from the image I am over seventeen thousand words into the novella.  Chances are it’s going to come in around the 25-30,000 word mark.  It’ll be as long as it needs to be (or as short) but I’ve got a solid outline so I’m just chipping away. Over two and a half thousand words last week is not to be sniffed at.

Well, you might be able to write faster but for now, that’s pretty good for me.

Most fun of all has been that this week I’ve spent most my words describing Katie hitting people. Repeatedly. It’s been fantastic and I can’t wait to show you it.

For now, I’ll just tease you a little and let you know that the wonderful artist responsible for the cover of The Dali Deception has delivered another phenomenal cover that I’ll be revealing in due course and I’ve been a lot more active on Facebook so if you’d like you can cruise on over and join me there.

Or not. It’s entirely up to you.
