hey cool, somewhere to brag!!!
62,700 words, and 8 1/2 chapters into the first book of my "The Coming of the Blessed." series. Was going to call the darn thing 'The Eternal Road', but then read about the biblical production play, and decided to use the first book's title for the name of the series. :confused:
The 'Untitled' first book will get a new name pretty soon, i hope. Trilogy? Maybe, not. Perhaps a long standing series like Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time. Can't say much yet until I get the first novel finished. Estimated now to be at about 130,000 words. :)
Sheesh...how do I follow you lot!!
1st Novel, 'Heaven Help Us' completed July of last year.
2nd in the trilogy 25,000 words in.
No interest by any agent or publisher who were all very complimentary but all very full ( of what I dare only guess).
Perhaps it's the humour ( too near Mr.P...although I was born with it!! ). Perhaps it's the fantasy ( lots of God, Devil, Priest, Nun, and various angels ). Perhaps it's the religion ( see last comment ). Perhaps it's timing, luck, beer or even age (52). Got nice compliments from Mr P's agent ( so it can't be the writing...haha ).
BUT......I don't give a fig....because I ain't givin' up!!!
So I'll keep you all posted.....and good luck to you all.
Oh...by the way...I didn't give up my day job. I'm a writer!!
