Started on 'Robin Morgan, Faerie Prince', plan is to do another few K words today now that final proofs are done of 'The Legal Talent' and 'The Fay Child'. I'll have to do final proof of 'Artists and Rooks' shortly as it's due in the Autumn.

Some other books are held up till I see what happens with Brexit as they are "Contemporary" and have travel, security agencies, banks & currency in the plot.

Now at 3,900 words on "Robin Morgan, Faerie Prince". He's just had a confrontation with Queen Titania. Though Roibeárd, AKA Púc or Puck has been called Robin, they are not related except by his great-granddaughter being adopted by Roibeárd's granddaughter, Though both are in the series. Robin has never met Roibeárd so far.
I've written most of two of the books after this one and fourteen earlier ones in the series.

I also did the weekly shop and met my grandchildren today.

Almost 5,000 total on 'Robin Morgan, Faerie Prince' now. I didn't spend long at it though, so only 980 words today I still need to tighten up the ending.

Managed to write 3,800 words yesterday, which is definitely the most I've ever written in a single day. My first novel is starting to come into shape!  :D

I wrote another 7,700 words today. The novel is now only 16,000 words short of the 100,000 words goal.  :D

Thank you soooo much @ScarletBea and @CameronJohnston! In truth, I had never thought I would see this day,  hahah. What with all the procrastinating, writer's block, and real life stuffs getting in the way. I'm so glad that at least I finished the piece. Even if it didn't get more widespread, at least I have one hell of a great great time writing it until the end.   :D

Great! Now the proof reads and edits!

I'm 1/3rd way revision 8 of 'The Ensorcelled Maid', paused part way through a rewrite of 'Four Kids, One Foxe' and I've paused writing 'Robin Morgan, Faerie Prince' which comes just after 'The Wooing of Marion', now 138K words and at version 19, which looks close to being the final.
List http://www.raymccarthy.corvidspress.com/otherworld/ Currently 'The Fay Child'  IX came out this week and 'Artists and Rooks' is September. There is discussion about whether 'Dwarves and Rooks' (fully final proofed) should come out in December or January or Spring 2020. Certainly 'Goths and Rooks' and later books involving UK may need Brexit related revisions.
