Volume 4 Progress Report - What's to Come
For those who are caught up to Volume 3: Alphas, I'll offer a few tid bits so that you'll know what's to come for Volume 4:
- Volume 4 will be going back to basics. While Volumes 2 (Horus) and 3 (Alphas) had a more slow-progressing kind of feel, Volume 4 will be similar to Volume 1 in the pacing. Expect to see a lot more action breaks.
- Without spoiling Volume 3, I can say that Volume 4 represents a shift in the series that will carry on to the conclusion. You'll definitely know what the ultimate end game is.
- Volume 4 will take place 10 years after the events of Volume 3. Overall, the time gap between Volume 1 and Volume 4 will be 31 years.
- As always, expect to see some surprises and familiar faces, especially toward the end
At the pace I'm going, Volume 4 should be completed by mid February. Then I'll allow an rigorous editing period, and I'm aiming for a April release. As of now, it's probably 75 percent written.
I'm looking forward to releasing the next installment of Halfkinds, and I truly appreciate the support I've been given. I told myself when I started, I just wanted to know that there'd be someone who liked my writing. While I still feel the sky is the limit, knowing that I actually have readers makes me very happy.
Expect a cover reveal soon!
