The Irish dictionary has returned to my desk. Last night I wasted lots of precious writing time in a rabbit hole of words. But, it has to be done.
See all those books propping up that dictionary? That’s research I have to do about something I can’t tell you about because it would be a spoiler. Because it is big. Gonna change things. And last through the rest of the series. I have no idea how to write the massive things it will affect. It kind of scares me.
I’m at about 26,000 words now. Moving at a crawl the last couple weeks because the flu has been running its course through two children and now one man. And I’m pretty sure I’m next.
I just reached the 20,000 word mark in THE CATALYST.
TB is breaking my heart. Anti-heroes can be traumatizing to write sometimes. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
While you wait for those 100,000 or so remaining words, here’s another series with a great anti-hero with his own set of problems. He’s angsty, tormented, foul-mouthed, and also a heavy drinker just like someone I know. And the women around him are casting a floodlight on his problems. Making him own up. Maybe making him clean up, if my hopes for the series are fulfilled. I really hope there’s a happily ever after for Caleb, #1001, and Fran, too. They’ve stolen my hearts as much as my own characters live to do.

Try it! The first one’s only $.99 on Kindle right now. It’s wonderfully devourable. Probably one of my favorite series of all time.
