That's awesome news, LC. I'm nearing completion on As Fierce as Steel finally. I've only got three chapters left to write, at about 10-15 pages apiece.

WOO HOO!

I'm almost to the 50,000 word point! Not bad for someone who lost a few writing days, but I really busted butt today to get a couple chapters done. :D

Awesome job LC! I'm down to the last chapter in my first book now. Been a long time coming to this point.

There were a couple other drafts, but I like this one the best thus far.

Coming into the home stretch of finishing 'Power Play.' Next step is editing and then ready for the masses! Tentative release date will be sometime in either September or early October at the latest. The publisher wants to have it out by start of the new NHL season for potential increased sales. Stay tuned.

What was your word count after your first draft, if you don't mind my asking?

About 130,000 words if I remember correctly. The manuscript is completed and on its way to the editing stage as we speak.

That's a solid length. You write much quicker than I. I'm still working on editing 302,000 words worth and that took almost three years to write.

This latest project took little over four months. I'm already working on an outline for the next book.
