Thanks for following my progress. I will try to release posts on a more consistent basis in the future. Life has been a little crazy lately, and I have devoted a considerable amount of time to writing my novel. As of this moment, I am 73,154 words into my novel. My goal is to clock in around 100,000 words. My girlfriend and I have discussed the cover art. I am excited about the preliminary sketches that she put together. Last week, my sister also worked on some of the illustrations between chapters. I am incredibly grateful for their help and support.
