The third book in Durand’s story is slowly coming together with about twenty thousand words to go.
My work on the third book has been slowed considerably by the demands of family (a three-year-old girl has taken over my office and filled it with stuffed animals) and my day job (where I work with other people’s teenagers).
Thusfar I’ve proved hopeless at estimating a completion date. I think, however, that the book will be finished this year. As I write these words, MS Word tells me I’ve got 123, 298 words on paper. In my notebook, I’ve probably got another fifteen thousand to type up, and the end is in sight.
Thanks to those of you who wrote to wonder when (or whether) there would ever be a Book III. It helps to hear that there are real readers out there!
