In the past three days, I have written forty-one pages and done three chapters. I am on the verge of writing the epic conclusion of the siege battle. An army has been raised. A rebellion is growing. At the end of this first book, the phoenix will rise! I have so much writing energy right now that I think I might finish this story by the end of the year or sooner. I look forward to the conclusion of this exciting new writing project and I will keep you updated on any further developments.
