This week I completed the first draft of the fifth Daughters of Lyra story. Daughters of Lyra is a science fiction romance ebook series that I’m writing as a follow up to my best selling sci fi romance series Sons of Lyra. I expect to be ready to start releasing the ebooks in this series in May, which will be good as I began release the Sons of Lyra short stories in May last year.
I really like the story in this one, which is why I just had to write it and up the series from the original four books to five. I think everyone will like it and I’m really excited about releasing it later this year. I have to edit it now, but there’s other stories that will take precedence over it for now – such as the second draft of Winter’s Kiss and Arcadian. It’s always best to leave stories for around a month before attempting the second draft anyway.
25,179 / 25,179
There’s my tally. Quite a respectable one and about the length that I expected. All of the Daughters of Lyra stories are bettern 25000 and 30000 words. It’s a nice length to write. The Sons of Lyra series were all shorter, between 12000 and 18000. I wish I had made those longer now. Live and Learn!
I’ll post an update about Winter’s Kiss soon. I’m beginning the second draft of it tomorrow… looong editing days ahead of me to get the story right.
