Splintered Energy book one of the Color Series weighs in at a respectable 112,000. I'm confident, thanks to the best editor in the world, renowned author of 14 published novels, it's polished and ready to sit, frozen in cyberspace waiting for book two.
Rain Word is down on the pages, coming soon to a que, and ready to lose up to a whopping 10K.
I swear to treat the reader with respect. Just enough repetition from book one to make a new reader comfortable, but tweaked to differ so those that prefer to read a series in order won't feel the need to skim. Alot of work to do.
