Update on CURSE OF A DARK GOD – just finished numba 50

I just finished chapter 50 and am heading into the climax sequence.  I have only 9 chapters left, and they should go fast. Right now I’m at 170,000 words. I’m going to finish a little over my target word length, but I don’t think it’s anything I can’t edit back down. 

In this book, Talen has to deal with the fact that he was fashioned to be a tool.  Sugar gets some kick-butt skills.  There’s a little romance. We also get to meet the woodikin, only mentioned in book one, and their wasp lords, as well as a new character named Harnock, who is a sleth blended by Lumen for battle.  There are other bit characters: a woman who reminds me of the Wife of Bath and a some sleth from the Old World. The Bone Faces come back in force. And you get to find out what happens to Nettle. Lots of great stuff. I really think those who liked Servant of a Dark God are going to enjoy this.

Oh, yeah.  And the Dogmen of Toth, some nasty pieces of work.

    So it will still be a year to two years after you are finished with this first draft before it is offically on shelves, correct?

    It could be out as early as next summer. Just depends on Tor’s schedule.
