So it has been a while since I last updated this blog.  But at least I have some good news!  The first draft of AO3 is complete and I’ve begun the editing process. Believe it or not, the first draft clocked in at 193K words and I expect that this will increase further as I edit.  As a result, AO3 will be quite a bit longer than the previous two books.

In terms of a timeline, editing will probably take a couple months (for my second developmental pass, an editor pass, and then proofing), and then we will need about two weeks to prepare the audio.  However, the manuscript looks pretty clean so far, so hopefully I’ll be able to move quickly.  The bottom line is that May or June is looking like a possibility for a release!

I’ll make a separate post once I’m ready to start putting up some early chapters on my Patreon.

Anyway, I hope you all are having a great week!

    LOL I just hope you finger less weapons on this book. I do love the story and can’t wait to read the this one.

      I hear the weapons like it. It’s like combat foreplay…

        Ha! I love that response, though I hope he meant “featuring less weapons.” Though, I don’t know why he’d want less weapons featured … or less fingering of weapons.

    Sounds like lots of work still to come. I’m here to proof read if necessary 😂. I can’t wait for this one. I’m completely hooked on the story.

    Hooray! I pointed this series out to my 13 year-old boys and they have not stopped hounding me about when the next book is coming out.

      Well, hopefully it will be soon! We’re making great progress on editing this month.

    Super excited too!

    For a while I avoided the side quest because I was sure it wasn’t going to be as good as the main series. I was so wrong! Now I’ve read all the available books at least twice and I can’t possibly wait for the third one.

    I am glad to hear the third one is longer. More content is almost always a good thing! It’ll be awesome to see how it picks up from the second one. And what the heck was he even doing during the side quest. It’ll be interesting to find out.

      Ha. I think I can answer those questions…

      I’m also working on another side novel in between editing (which gets a little tiresome). I’m calling it AO: Apathy and it follows a character introduced in book three (I still need to come up with a good story idea for Frank’s side quest). I’m a little sucked in already, but it’s a bit different than Riley and Jason…

      I’ve got a few early, unedited chapters up here.

    Just finished the first 2 books on audible (I “read” while I’m at work to make the day pass faster and more enjoyably) and I’m getting ready to start the side quest . Was pretty worried the first book was going to devolve into male gamer misogynist drivel, but you swerved it away from that in a great and really enjoyable way! Hoping that Riley gets fleshed out in the side quest!
    Also that cliff hanger for the ending of book two is wild! Can’t wait for book 3 to hit audible hopefully not too long after the print version comes out!

      Glad you enjoyed the books! I also wasn’t too fond of the misogyny in some other books in the genre…
