Here in the Great White North, we're safely into the month of March. I've heard that the other, less awesome, parts of the world aren't too far behind.
After three months of snow, ice, and precious little sunlight, winter has lost much of its initial charm. Now that it's March, we can finally hope for spring.
And then, of course, the universe will see us being hopeful, say "nuh uh", and dump more snow on us. Because that's how these things work.
While more white nonsense falls from the sky, I've been working on the next book. The third book in the 'Hybrid' series doesn't have a name yet; I'm referring to it by the compelling and exciting name of 'Hybrid 3'.
The first draft of 'Hybrid 3' is done, and I'm well into my initial editing pass. It's bigger than the first two books: over 90k words, compared to the 70k of the other two.
Since it's the third book in a five (or six?) book series, there's a lot going on. We're getting to know characters, and events are starting to move on their own. There's even a little bit of 'old meets new' that happens.
I'm hoping to shorten the time between books, but we'll see. It only takes one zombie apocalypse to throw off the schedule. And no one ever thinks about the cleanup afterward; zombie stains are hell to get out of carpet.
Uh... I mean, that's what I've heard.
