Writing Update - May 2016

Quite a few things happened since the last writing update back in February. My second Romanian short story collection, Secventa de zbor, was launched at Final Fantasy book fair. I had three short stories published, one in Argos, one in Revista de Suspans, and one in Stiinta si Tehnica. The Galaxis space opera anthology will be launched at Bookfest book fair in June. The second book in The Stolen Wings series and the second story in The Devil You Know series have been released as well. So it's been pretty busy on the publishing front.

The real work was done, however, on the writing front. I've finished translating The Impaler Legacy series and got it to the second draft. The final draft will have to wait until I finish writing The Chasm. I'm up to date with the daily writing quota, but the novel turned out to be longer than initially planned. I was aiming for 50k, I passed that mark, and I'm no way near the end. I suppose that's good news as it will be a bigger story, but it also means the release date gets delayed. I'm not sure when it will be ready. I'll have a better idea once the first draft is done. I still enjoy writing it so I'm not rushing it.

Yes, I know you're more invested in Broken People and The Stolen Wings series and can't wait for book 3, but there will come a time for those, too. My fingers are itching for another Law and Crucible adventure actually. And should I tell you meanwhile I'm having a lot of fun plotting a ghost story? No idea when I'll write that one. :)
