I just finished the first draft of Travelers, so tomorrow I’ll probably start in on the editing process. The first draft came in at 105,486 words, and typically I’ll end up adding two or three thousand more words during the editing process.
I’m extremely proud of how this book came out. Considering I had to create a completely new group of characters and place them in a post invasion world over two-hundred years in the future, getting through this book was a rather monumental task, but I finally did it. I think it might just be my favorite book of the series as well. Unfortunately, it’s also the last book of the series, which means I can’t publish it until I reach that point.
I’ll be starting work on the 15th book of the series, Infestation, probably at some point within the first two weeks of March, and then we’ll see how things go from there. If that ends up being the last book before Travelers, I’ll publish them both at the same time. If not, then I’ll just keep writing the series until I reach that point. It breaks my heart to not be able to release this book yet, because it really is something I’m proud of, and something that I also got very emotional over as I brought it to a close. Still, there’s more story yet to tell, and I’ll be doing just that starting in March.
