Things have been busy this week, despite the holiday; in Canada, we had July 1, Canada Day, while our American friends celebrated Independence day on July 4th. Carol and I spent the day catching up on some TV shows, including finally watching the last season of Game of Thrones. I hope you, too, had a moment to relax and just enjoy life.
The rest of the week we were putting some finishing touches on two new origin stories for the launch of my upcoming series, The Frozen Flame, but I also kept working on Burden of the Crown, which now sits at roughly 65,000 words (out of an estimated 120,000). I enjoy working on both these series, as evidenced by my output. I’m producing between 5,000 and 6,000 words a day, excluding weekends and holidays. After all, I have to have some time off to recharge and play with the doggies!
So what can I tell you about Burden? Not much without giving away some surprises. Someone will get married, and someone else might find themselves carrying a child, but I won’t tell you who, you’ll have to wait and see. I
I must also say, I’ve been thrilled with the feedback from the Beta Team on the new series.

It takes place in the same world, but in a location far removed from Wincaster.
