Weekly Writing Progress & Other Business #12

I'm writing the next book in The Alchemancer series. It's called The Nullification Engine and should be out soon. As a way to keep readers updated on my progress and also so I can gauge the same, each week I take a look at my current writing progress and report it here. Also, I discuss some other areas revolving around the business side of things.

Still waiting to hear back from my illustrator. I've been waiting for a while now and I'm starting to think the guy died. Seriously. It's been a couple of weeks and he hasn't responded with even a "still working on it". I'm going to send him another email today to see if he gets back to me. Kind of disconcerting and certainly unprofessional to not respond at all. He does some nice work and I'm actually not "in the hole" at all with him right now, so there's that, at least.

This past week I blogged about:

Writing Progress

Another good week of progress on The Nullification Engine. Very nearly 50% done with the first draft. I should surpass that mark today. And I hit over 6300 words for the week which is my highest weekly total to date on this novel. Here are the numbers and I gotta get back to writing!
