Today is the first day of Nanowrimo, an initiative where participants attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. Its great fun for the participants and helps give you the discipline if (like me) your greatest challenge is procrastination.
Although I am not participating this year, I did in 2014, and it was then that I wrote the bulk of the second book in the Ap’Lydin Chronicles: The Slaves of the Horned God.
As mentioned in the earlier post, once the original version of The Heirs of Lydin was split in half due to size, I realized there was a significant time jump in the middle, a time where there were some gaps left to be filled. Hence the idea of an “interquel” was formed, and the series went from one books, to two, and then turned into a trilogy. The Slaves of the Horned God is due to be released sometime in 2017, once all the required editing and tinkering has been completed.
