Tonight, I finished the climax of Frostbite.  I’m pleased with the way it’s all come together to involve all of the characters.  To avoid spoilers, I won’t give away any more, except that this will be a very emotional book.

My first draft will probably be done next week.  Then, it’s on to editing.  The book is nowhere near prime time and I already know of several major issues that will need fixing before I even think of publishing.  Due to its complicated plot and numerous conflicts, editing might take a little while.

Right now, I’m thinking I’ll come out around 60,000 words.  As I edit, the word count will no doubt increase to about 65,000 or more, making it about the same length as the other books in the series.
