The Four Readers of the Apocalypse

Fridays are good days to reach milestones.  It means people can slack off on the weekend and not feel guilty about it.

I'm happy to report that I've reached an important milestone with Chosen One, the sequel to Burnt Worlds.  The latest draft has been bundled up and sent out to my favourite pen-wielding bloodletters beta-readers, who have bravely volunteered to give it a look and provide their edits, suggestions and opinions.

I'm incredibly fortunate to have such excellent editorial assistance, from four people who approach the book from different directions.  I'm looking forward to hearing what the 'Four Readers of the Apocalypse' have to say.

The schedule in my head still says Q2 for Chosen One.  But I don't want to rush the Four Readers; I don't think any group with 'Apocalypse' in their name should be rushed or pestered.  So I'll start working on ideas for the next book in the series, and wait for the sounds of hooves outside my door.
