A while back, I wrote about the progress of my 5th novel, a dark near-future work, whose title is still hiding from me. I was worried that it would be too short to really qualify as a novel. However, the first draft, after some initial overly-used-words trimming, is over 80,000 words. That's a good length.
I will not go back over it for a couple rounds of editing for probably a month, so that I can see it with new eyes. In the meantime, I'll work on the first draft of a mock-historical satire that could be quite controversial.
I won't predict a publishing date or time frame for the 5th novel. It's a work that I want to have as right as possible.
Stay tuned, and enjoy the coming holidays!
