C&D2’s first draft is done!

Jun 22, 2020 | Behind the Scenes, Declarations, Progress | 3 comments

As the title suggests, I just finished the first draft of C&D’s sequel. I have been struggling for so long to complete this, and now… IT’S FINALLY DONE!!!

What’s next?

God willing, this: I’m going to give my brain a break from C&D2-related activities, then do a personal readthrough. Then it’s off to beta readers, which should last for about a month. After that, there’s fixing whatever issues the beta reader/editor found, which should hopefully not take that long. After formatting the result of that, we should be ready to go.

Hopefully this will all take place this year, and I’m confident it will. But for the moment, I’m going to relax my brain.


  1. I’m looking forward to reading it!

  2. Now that is good news.

    Will there be a hardcover edition like book 1?

    • God willing, yes. As it’s really a matter of having a bigger cover, there should be no reason why there wouldn’t be one.
