I just finished writing book 12 of the series, Emissary. I’ll start the proofreading and editing process later tonight. This is the longest book in the series, with the first draft coming in at 113,177 words for just the story itself before the editing. During the editing process I’ll typically add around two to three thousand more, so I’m expecting it to end up around 116K words when all is said and done.
I have an idea of what’s coming in the next book, but I haven’t chosen a title yet. I’ll decide on one by the time I finish editing this one.
Anyway, that’s it for now. There are a couple of new characters in this book, one of which I had an absolute blast writing. She’s very sharp, intelligent and endlessly enthusiastic. I’m really looking forward to writing more of her.
Wayne asked me back for another interview on today’s show. You can listen to it in the embedded player below. We touched on a variety of things including book covers, social media and ways to get past writer’s block.

I just added myself and all of my books to AuthorsDB. It’s like an IMDB for authors. The author profile is active. I’m just waiting for all the book listings to go through moderation as well, which should happen within the next twelve hours apparently. Here’s the link to my profile: Duane L. Martin – AUTHORSdB
