This is all rough draft stuff, so please don’t take this the wrong way.
I got to the end of the last full chapter on Rich Man’s War last night. That brings me to 140,021 words and only the epilogue left to go.
Again. Rough draft. I still have to start from the beginning with revisions, and then when I’m done with that hand it to people and see what needs to be fixed before it’s ready for prime time.
If I haven’t mentioned this before, Rich Man’s War holds much more action than Poor Man’s Fight. It’s a bigger story on a bigger scale, and while Tanner is a very consequential figure in the scheme of it all, he’s also just one more grunt in the middle of big events.
When I have the epilogue finished, I will post the prologue here on my blog. I hope to have that done this week, mostly because I have family coming in to visit next weekend and that will surely derail me for a couple of days. So if you’re really looking forward to Rich Man’s War, watch this space!
