The Belgae Torc sequel

90,000 words now complete and entering the final stages of the book.  The deadline for the sequel to my novel The Belgae Torc is April next year.  In order to meet that deadline I have to have the first draft finished within the next couple of weeks.  The editing, proof reading and preparation for publication can take as long as six months, so I guess working on that time scale I'm behind schedule.  I have a couple of weeks off work over the Christmas period, so providing the first draft is pretty much done I can work hard on the editing.
The problem is I can't stop thinking about the ideas I have for the book that follows on from The Witness.  I really shouldn't be thinking about that at this stage as I need to focus on finishing book two of the Torc Trilogy.  I will then have to complete the third book in the series pretty quickly as I anticipate my readers wanting the third book in double quick time.
I really need to give up the day job!

Just returned from a local craft fair where I sold five copies of my book The Witness.  Several people said they wanted it on kindle so I directed them to Amazon and/or my website.

I've had 161 hits on my website this week.  Not bad for my first week I guess.
