Since my last post, I finished what is hopefully the last draft of Shadow of the Necropolis! It’s 79,000 words, so quite a bit longer than my original estimate of 71,000. I think my query letter is as ready as it’ll ever be, too. Now all I need to do is do a run-through edit for filtering/telling words, and it’ll be polished.
PitchWars submissions open on August 27! I’m ready 😀
