Y’all are likely getting as tired of reading the bookless monthly updates as I am of writing them, but I had a shit May plagued with a terrible cold and the stress of finding a new place to live, so yeah. Things didn’t go to plan (do they ever?).
I am traveling to see my family next week for the first time in a year but other than that, my life is devoted to book 10 being done as soon as I can without compromising my vision of the story. I won’t go into how the sausage is made too much, but I changed a major event in book 10 a couple months ago which meant having to re-draft the bulk of the book, so if you are wondering how it could be almost done in Jan and not done in June, that’s how. You can’t really change something in a novel without re-drafting to make sure the change fits with the whole (well, I can’t anyway). So please, don’t be too disappointed, the book is coming, and I even skipped hanging out with kittens to work on it this weekend so you know that’s much I love y’all. 🙂
Also, as a bonus for the Patreon followers (which you can be, too! for as little as a dollar!), I posted the first chapter of Harper’s Tale (which is coming probably Oct or Nov this year). So if you want to read it, join the Patreon and enjoy! https://www.patreon.com/anniebellet
