I’ve started writing book 9 in the Princelings series, the Chronicles of Marsh.
My Camp Nanowrimo project this year was to finish editing one of my other books. Since I did that, and I was only two-thirds of the way through camp, I reckoned I should get going on the Princelings saga again.
I’ve only written two chapters so far, and that’s a cheat, because the second was already written. Fred is telling Willoughby how to write the history of Castle Marsh, so we have a linking story of things going on in the present, plus a catch-up on how we got to this point.
At some stage I will run out of pre-written tales, and will write new ones to fill in the gaps between the last one and the start of the final book, gaps that cover the time of books 7 & 8 that haven’t yet been aired here or on my blog. And when the underlying story now ends, we’ll be all ready to start book 10.
That’s the plan, anyway.
I haven’t got anything approaching a cover idea yet, but I thought you’d like to see Dani’s original concept sketches for the second edition covers. They’re just scribbles, and she’ll hate me for showing them, but I like them anyway!
