She’s done an absolutely beautiful job!
I’ve also been thinking long and hard about whether or not to split up the story or publish it as one book. As of right now, the entire manuscript reads over 105k words – and I’m still not finished. Because of this, I decided that it would be a better idea to split the manuscript in half, making Dragon Kin and The Dragon Throne into 50k+ word novellas. I wasn’t certain I should do this at first, but at this point the word count is too lengthy to leave as is for a YA novel.
There are some upsides and downsides to this – the downside being that some readers might actually prefer the thicker novel of over 105k words. The upside is that I’ll be able to edit and publish Dragon Kin much sooner than I had hoped. I might even have it ready for publishing mid-2016.
In any case, Mihaela will also design the covers for the following novellas in the trilogy ^.^
So, here it is.
Dragon Kin has been submitted to IWW for editing and is running the gauntlet.
The Dragon Throne is in the last stages and, like every ending, is difficult for me to write. But I’m getting there.
Wish me tons of coffee, patience, and good luck ^.^
