It has been one week since the typing ban and my joints and knuckles are one hundred percent better. My fingertips still hurt like all get out. ::sigh:: I tried some experimental typing and ow. Ow.
I am so tired. So tired. We’re at 22K on Diamond Fire and it’s time for the exciting finish. I am zombified. Dictating is a completely different animal then writing. I don’t even know if what we are writing is good or bad anymore. It just needs to die. Finish, finish, finish. Finish. Finish and give the thing to Erika and be done. OMG.
Me: Yes, but it costs a ton of diamonds. I would have to spend real money on this game.
Gordon, in a seductive voice: If we finish Diamond Fire today, you can have the mermaid suit.
Finish, finish, finish.
“I feel like this is a dumb question but I have to ask in order to prepare my self for for Magic Triumphs, also because I’m trying to be optimistic. I know that everywhere on here says that Kate Daniels will consist of 10 books and Magic Triumphs will be the 10th book. I just want to know if it will be the final book in the series. I honestly need to go into this book knowing if I have say good bye to these characters. No idea if I’ll get an answer or when I’ll get an answer but thank you in advance!!”
We’ve answered this before, but here it is again just in case anyone missed it. Kate and Curran deserve their HEA. They worked very hard for Happily Ever After. However, we are not leaving the world behind. There will still be 2 books in Iron Covenant, which will feature side characters from KD world. There will likely be shorter works, like novellas, or possibly a series with some side characters. It is likely that this will be self-published or, if it will be with a publisher, it will be in the future.
We are exhausted. We are six months into the year. We finished 2 full length books. We have at least 30K on the Sweep of the Blade and Diamond Fire will likely clock at 25K plus. We will have to do a book tour for Magic Triumphs. There is no way out of it. And we still will need to write the first Catalina book. We need a break. So we are going to be careful about planning future releases. 🙂 I can’t promise you that we will write more Kate novels, but I can’t promise you that if inspiration hits, there won’t be a surprise side novella or Curran POV. But the main series arc concludes with Magic Triumphs. You will have closure.
Ok, have to go write Diamond Fire. Finish, finish, finish.
