The second draft of The Red: Trials

January 16th, 2014

…is done.

For certain, generous definitions of “done.” The story is missing a two to three page epilogue, which I’m putting off until I have a better idea of what else, if anything, I’ll do in this story world.

For some reason, I don’t write in classic trilogies. Episodic novels are more my style, which explains the duologies of Deception Well/Vast, The Dread Hammer/Hepen The Watcher, and now The Red: First Light/Trials.

At any rate, this is a solid draft. I’m printing it out now, will read it over again and revise in that form, then send it off to beta readers, hopefully by the end of the month — with an epilogue attached.

    If not a trilogy, how about a quadrilogy or dual duology? 🙂

  2. Linda Says:

    Actually, a dual duology feels most likely at this point, I just don’t have the fortitude yet to make that commitment. *tired*
