I got an unexpected day off today, so I’ll be putting it to good use working on Action Figures – Issue Four: Cruel Summer — which, at present, stands at about 35,400 words, almost the halfway mark.
I hope to get another good chunk out of the way today, since it’ll be the last chance I get to work on it until next weekend. I’m at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire this weekend, then it’s back to the daily grind for the rest of next week, but then I’ll have all of Saturday and Sunday to sit on the couch, pound at the laptop, and keep the Halloween horror movie goodness rolling.
By the way: as soon as Cruel Summer is out of my hair, I plan to keep the workaholic attitude firmly in place, because I’m already mentally laying out book five, which will be entitled (drumroll, please): Action Figures – Issue Five: Team-Ups. Book four is going to be a darker story, and I suspect readers are going to need something a little lighter afterwards (I know I will), so book five will be a collection of mini-adventures that will pair up various characters in the AF universe. The game plan is to have book four out by March 2015, and book five out by September 2015.
