Drovers Update: second draft finished up to climax!

I  have been making progress on my next novel. Today, I revised the second draft up to the climax. Tomorrow, I get into it. It’s going to be an awesome battle with lots of heroics. Can’t wait. You’ll notice the progress meter. I thought the book would be 35k. A quickie. But it’s probably going to end up at 60k. Almost twice as long, but still the shortest novel I’ve ever written.

You can see some of the images I’ve been gathering for this on Pinterest.

The thing that’s eluding me at this point is the name of the series itself.

    Great news, John -progress meter indeed looks awesome. Always appreciate the updates.

    Nice final stamp on 2017 – I trust 2018 will be a wonderful year for the Brown clan.

    Be well.

    I have no idea what to call it, but if I see “Drovers” I’m thinking Western. But that’s just me.

    I’ll probably read it no matter what you call it!

      Yeah, it says cattle to my wife as well. I think anyone who knows what “drovers” mean will think that. Of course, not many YA kids will know that term. I’ve got to come up with something.
