The nano project is halfway complete, sitting at 40k. IfI can do 2 5k days I can call nano done and just focus on finishing the book itself. Then I will take about a month or two just to focus on playing with covers. Seeing as it looks like we may be moving sometime between Feb 1st and March 30th I don’t want to get too deep into another project. So I’ll probably be editing E1 and playing with digi art.

“It is not an easy path. Death by Zarconis or the Dark Immortals is a very real possibility” She nodded, made a slight gesture at Lord Merdoc who inclined his head and left.
“Everyone dies.” He said. “Even the gods”
