You read that right–The City Under the Mountain is finished. The first chapter just went out to the Beta Readers. The Great Muddy Edit has begun.
City is long. Ridiculously long. I expect to cut thousands of words from the manuscript during the edit, but even then, it will be larger than The Knife in the Dark. Here’s a screenshot of the finished product. To give you an idea, the final word count for Knife was around 145,000 words.
I keep a file for cut scenes and other things I slice from the manuscript. City‘s cut file is every bit as large as Child of the Flames.
So keep your eyes peeled for The City Under the Mountain to drop within the next few weeks. The audio versions of The Knife in the Dark and The Old Man of the Temple release soon, so stay on the lookout for those as well.
Great things happening, more updates to follow soon.
