The next orcs book is slowly coming along (I apologize for the lackluster progress). On a positive note the pace of writing has picked up recently, and I am over the half way hump! 50,000 words down! Woo! Yeah! Alright!
Seriously though, for the first orcs book, the second half of the book flowed so much easier, and was finished way faster. It took me about eight months to write the first half of the first orcs book, and only one month to smash through the second half. This time around it has taken me about a year to write the first half, and now that the direction is pretty clear for the rest of the novel I am confident that I can push out the second half of the book in the next three months, and publish by Christmas.
Well, it seems I have set myself a deadline here.
Hang on to your (Christmas) hats. The second book in The Book of Many Orcs will be out before Santa!
p.s. Tenatively changing the title to The Orc of Many Answers. I think it matches will with the first book in the series :-)
