On Sunday March 19th, 2017, I finished Homeland Defense, the second novel in the Shadowkill trilogy.
Also on March 19th, I started the third book, Storming The Hill. This will close out the trilogy. Will there be future books in the universe I had created? I honestly do not know. There are so many other books/series I want to write, but one never knows when I get a spark of a new idea that I can use in the Shadowkill universe.
I started writing Homeland Defense on 1/9/2017, which brings the total days I worked on it at 70. This is just the first draft. When I finish Storming The Hill, I will go back and edit both at the same time. I'm still shooting for a summer release of both novels, which will include a box set of all three, so I'll be a busy beaver.
Homeland Defense runs at 59,543 words. I averaged 851 words a day, but when I factor in the 11 days that had zero writing--I even had a day I wrote only 25 words, but that still counted as a writing day--the average jumps up to 1,009 in the 59 actual writing days.
I am currently around the 5,000 word mark in Storming The Hill. It's a good click so far, and it's been fun.
