I have been writing and writing and writing and writing.... you get the point. I am guessing here but I believe I am 1/3 of the way done with book 2 bringing the word count in at 20K. My goal for book 2 was to land roughly around 65K which is looking more than possible. Finding Alice topped at 40K. The reason I didn't try to write and write and make it longer? I didn't want to fill it with fluff. This isn't even an issue in book 2, the characters are already developed from book 1 but people don't just stop developing and growing do they? Well no, and Alice and all the other characters haven't stopped either.
I've been keeping tabs on the contest. When I say keeping tabs, more like stalking it to see of people want to read my book. What can I say, I am human after all.
In good news the proof came in for the paperback so tonight I'm going to sit back and enjoy Alice's story one more time. Don't forget Finding Alice will be available February 19th, 2012 for Kindle, paperback(via amazon), smashwords, epub (nook).
I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays!
