14 days start to finish, which may be the quickest I've ever written a full length first draft (My record for a book was 9 days for County lines, but that was only 40 odd k) - that's an average of 4489 words per day. I was a helped significantly by having 7 days leave in that fourteen, this shit would be a lot easier if I could make enough money at it to be full time.
2nd self edit to Day of The Eagle tonight
Hidden fires (dusty miller 6) processed through vellum and uploaded to amazon, kobo and d2d... should go live in the next couple of days... the target was to publish 6 books this year, we're 7 months in and that was number 3.. however i have another one completely ready to drop , county lines, so i am confident that i'll catch up.
Just starting the next Hawke book, Blood Eagle
3620 words tonight
Blood eagle now 5743 - about 2k tonight
