It may have taken me from all the way back in November 2015 to the very last second of April 2017, but I’ve at last typed the very words I’ve been striving to reach. The final count?
That’s sightly less than Robert Jordan’s The Eye of the World (305k) and a little more than George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones (285k), but nowhere near as hefty as Brandon Sanderson’s The Way of Kings (387k). In terms of page numbers of your normal-sized hardback? It about 720 pages. Quite a hefty thing.
Now all that’s left is the editing process. But I’ll be taking a bit of a break through May to catch up on other things before diving into Dark One’s Bride. I’d really like to get that finished for an October/Early November release.
