I have officially completed the first draft of DEMON PRINCESS: REIGN CHECK. Hooray!
Just shy of my 65K goal, but with the changes and descriptive parts I know I’ll be adding to the next draft, I anticipate a final word count of about 70K for this book.
I’m happy with it. Not sure about the ending, though. There’s a lot of set up in this book for following books I’ve planned in the series (which I haven’t been contracted for yet) and I’m not sure it reads as stand-alone as I’d like it to. I’ll keep an eye on that in the next draft. While I want to set things up and leave breadcrumbs for the future, it should read as a complete book unto itself. That is the goal.
But it was a (mostly) fun write with demons and faeries and dragons and talking cockroaches, love triangles, teenaged angst. There are themes of friendship, truth, duty, and strangely, slavery and capital punishment. Heee-larious stuff!!
Must admit, one actor seemed to play a large part of my inspiration in this book. I can’t help my love for Rpattz. I think my friends are planning an intervention for me really soon.
