The final stretch is finally here! After 70 thousand words of setup and skirmishes, its finally time to get down to business in Call of Herne.
Like pieces on a chessboard, the villains and heroes are arraigned opposite each other, ready to clash with their foes.
I didn’t expect this book to be this long. Hell, my original plan was to finish at 50k, but as my fellow writers will attest sometimes fantasy writing doesnt work that way. With so many strings and elements to bring together, I’ve had to spend a lot of time thinking about what to include in this book and what to include in season two of the two series.
I’m both looking forward to, and scared of, the break I’m taking between the two seasons, but its necessary for my to take some time away from these characters and reestablish my connection with them. I have plans for what I’ll write next, but I’m torn between ideas. It’ll honestly depend on what I feel like doing once Call of Herne hits the proverbial shelves.
I was originally going to make a massive shove at the story through the weekend, but I realised coming in that would be a mistake. Momentum is a great thing, don’t get me wrong, but a gentle push on the breaks to mentally prepare oneself isn’t necessarily a bad idea either.
And so it begins, and in the distance Carthage awaits…
