It took a few nights staying up until 4 o'clock in morning to do it, but the novel Sword of the Dragon: Swords of the Six was completed yesterday just after midnight. It's longer than I expected (over 75,000-words) but I'm happy with how it turned out.
I sent the manuscript to Dan Penwell as an email attachment early this afternoon. Now I must again wait for AMG's response.
In the mean time, I've started reading prospective stories for the anthology of fantasy and science-fiction stories that I am editing for Double Edged Publishing. I'm really excited about this project. It will be fun to see my name on a printed book for the first time and I enjoy reading the stories and picking my favorites.
I've also submitted a couple stories to magazines, one sci-fi and the other fantasy. So I'm waiting on a response to those.
Writing is an unending learning process, always room for improvment. But I wouldn't trade this ambition for anything!
