Work continues on the first draft of the fifth/last book of the Borealis series. I've currently got a bit more than 30,000 words, and I'm about a third done. It's going great, and I'm happy with it.
I expect it's going to be bigger than Realm of Elinth or Loyalties; it might even wind up being the biggest book in the series. There's a lot of stuff going on.
In other news, I've had people asking me about my experiences in marketing my books. I'm not an expert, but I can share what I've tried and the results. I've just finished a promotion on Amazon that introduced the series to new readers (hello!). Once I have some more data I'll compile my results in a blog post that will, in all likelihood, contain math. Just saying.
In other, other, news, today is the day after Valentine's Day, also known as 'Half-Price Chocolate Day'. Just FYI, the LD50 dosage of chocolate (theobromine) is about 450mg per pound of body weight. That works out to about 80 lbs of milk chocolate for a 150-pound person. So you're going to want to stop well before that.
