Awful Intent Update: Chapter 26

I have now moved from the struggle into the resolution. It’s all down hill from here.  I expect the novel to be 70-80k words. The shortest novel I’ve written yet. But I always seem to add on most of my revisions. I hope to keep it shorter, but we’ll see.

Now you may ask, hey, how does that compare with other thrillers? Well, here are the lengths of a few of James Patterson’s.

4th of July 68,000
