The second book in The Nyepsium Wars is fully outlined and ready to go. For me, outlining is the heavy lifting–after I have the essentially story laid out and know what scenes must occur, I am ready to write the first draft. I will be spending countless hours writing this over the next several weeks. And yet, I know that once the first draft is done, there is an amazing amount of work still to be done. Regardless of how it is for other authors, the first draft for me is often in need of some serious CPR. I accomplish that with another ten or twelve rewrites.
It is exhilarating to know that Mathonwey is ready for his next adventure. Stay tuned for more action, mayhem and intrigue.
