It’s been a couple of months since my last update. Been busy writing. Well, we’ve just finished Chapter 53, which turned out to be another long one clocking in at over 48,000 words (second longest chapter in the entire series). I swear, every chapter is starting to feel like its own novella… lol. Anyway, the grand total for Book Six at this point is 240,000 words plus. By the conclusion of this book I suspect that Book Six will take over as the new longest book in the series (and that seems to be the trend since Book Three).

I apologize for another brief delay before posting the final chapter. As I’ve said above, each one of these chapters is feeling like its own story within a story and it takes a lot out of me to plan, plot and write each chapter. Rather than rush to meet online deadlines, I would rather take a couple of weeks and make sure everything’s right… especially for the Book Six finale.

There has been a whole lot happening in this book. I always knew this volume was going to be the most challenging to tackle in this series since I dubbed this one as the ‘Origin Story’. But now, the end of this part of the journey is almost upon us and I’m excited to see what comes out in the finale chapter. Writing this book has brought out all kinds of surprises I didn’t see coming, as well as paving the way for the final two books that are pending. I love it when this story takes on a life of it’s own and catches me off-guard. Those surprises along the way reinvigorate me every time, motivating me to explore new paths rather than forcing the story to stay within the confines of a plotline. I am delighted by what has been revealed to me in this book.

Well, obviously I can’t talk about anything that’s happening in the final chapter, but I can tell you that it will not end with a cliffhanger going in to Book Seven. No, this will wrap up the second long leg in this journey, clearing the way for the final two-book run to the finish line.

As far as what happens after… Book Seven is already in the planning stages and I intend on jumping right into the writing of it following the conclusion of Book Six. It will still be titled, Book Seven: The Prophet… a that’s all I can say right now. I also know the title for the last book in this long series, but I’m going to keep that to myself for a while.

Chapter 54: Treachery, will start on Monday, October 7th. If I can have it my way, I would love to post the final episode on Halloween since Book Six premiered on Halloween last year. Man this has been a long book… lol. Time will tell ;)

Well, that’s all I’ve got for now. As always, thanks for reading, and I look forward to jumping into the conclusion of Book Six with you in a couple of weeks.
