Honestly, I can't wait to get everyone's feed back on the story. My wife's friend has been telling me the last few times she's seen me that I look run down and tired. I have to truthfully say that doing a nine to five job forty hours a week and then writing until one or two o'clock in the morning and getting up at five thirty in the morning to get some more writing in takes its toll on you. But then, once I see the finished result of all that hard work and hear how much everyone loves the story, it makes all the work worth it.
Basically book four is almost two and a half books long. I'm just shy of that 210,000 word mark. So there is a LOT of story. I just added the first character sheet and equipment spam at the end which increased the word count by another three and a half thousand words. I'm so happy I didn't put that in throughout the story. I only added it to the end for those who were interested. It would have been annoying as hell otherwise. I think in the future I'll put one in at the beginning and one in at the end.
Tomorrow is one of my seventeen hour work days for my real IT job. So figure Wednesday I'll get the corrections in. I might or might not get the cover finished. I have to hunt down the area where I forgot to add three levels to every zombie I raised. That's going to be annoying as hell, but doable. I'm sure people will point out the mistake if they see any.
Once that is done, I should be able to upload it to Amazon and get it published. That can take anywhere from four to seventy-two hours.
Seriously, I apologize about completely blowing my guestimate for when the book would be out. I'd such high hopes on getting it out before Christmas, but now I realized that was never going to happen. Even today, I probably wrote out another thirty thousand words to make my own personal deadline for today. Every time I'd write something I discover there was a whole depth of the character interaction and story that just added to everything. I couldn't skip forward, I had to tell the story as it was. I hope everyone enjoys it.
I've been a little nervous about posting too much on my blog or facebook due to the group of writers who've been hounding me and trying to block my stories on Amazon and Audible. The one thing that has stopped them are the fans who have enjoyed the story and saw through their lives. Thank you. I'll start posting new updates online now.
