Last week I mentioned that I’d realized I might have to add a few extra chapters to the last book of the Scorched Earth trilogy. I did end up doing so, although not in the way I’d initially expected. When looking over what I’d written so far, I thought I could avoid adding a couple of chapters by switching a few around and it worked! However, I then realized I still needed extra chapters when I noticed that I didn’t have enough for one of the subplots. As a result, the book is now sitting at eighty chapters! Settle down for a long read guys!
Following the addition of the new chapters, I wrote some random lines in a few chapters, including the cliffhanger at the end of chapter thirty-two. I then finished up chapter thirty-three and began working on chapter sixteen. This turned into a bit of an unexpected action scene which was quite a pleasant surprise.
On Monday, I managed to meet with the new cover designer who has offered her services. We had a pleasant conversation during which I showed her the example for the wrap-around cover I have in mind, as well as some sketches for a few of the characters. While we were chatting, a man who’d overheard us came over expressing interest, and telling us how he was creating board games with similar sci-fi characters. I told him about the Fire Angel Universe Facebook page to give him an idea of what my books were about, so maybe something interesting will come out of that.
