Ashes of Empire: Imperial Sunset has been with my editor since Friday, and so far, so good. It means I’m now back to working full time on Without Mercy (Siobhan Dunmoore Book 5), although I’ve not made as much progress in the last two weeks as I would have wished. This is mostly because revising Imperial Sunset turned out to be more effort than I had anticipated (I decided to essentially re-write the last 25%!) but the end result is a much stronger storyline that gives me greater scope to explore the Ashes of Empire universe in future installments. In fact, you could say Ashes of Empire: Imperial Sunset opens up a whole universe of storyline possibilities. But before I delve into the next installment of that saga, I must finish Dunmoore #5, work on the second Chief Superintendent Caelin Morrow mystery and write another Zack Decker adventure. For 2018, I’ll likely only be able to complete the first two.
And now, since it’s summer, I have work to do on the property, so that we don’t see a repeat of last winter’s problems. And that means trading the keyboard for a shovel for the rest of today. Dunmoore will have my full attention once more tomorrow morning.
