Slowly, thanks for asking.
I’m almost 50K words into the next book. I can’t recall what I have said about it to this point, so I will recap. Chenda and the Airship Brofman was a good romp, and we rejoin Chenda and her companions again in Gospel According to Verdu.
We take up the story at the point where Verdu gets left behind, and follow his adventure, which is a brutal one. The basic themes of GAV are similar to C&ASB in that it’s a journey through faith. BUT there are elements of the dangers of zealotry, the value of friendship, and the meaning of family.
Why is the writing going so slow? Well, I have a lot more going on. Promoting C&ASB took a good bit of time earlier in the year, the job takes up more time than before – as do the kids – and I have less insomnia. All in all – there just aren’t enough hours in the day. SO – I will work when I can, sleep when I must, and write when the spirit moves me. I’m off to get down a few thousand more words. Wish me luck.
